On What The Team Accomplished During Training Camp And In Preparation For Wisconsin:
Going into our first game, we are a more confident team than we were a year ago. We are playing harder and playing together. We are still young in several spots and will play a lot of true freshmen again this year just like last season, but I see good things coming up.
On The Difference Between Year One And Year Two As Head Coach At UMass:
On Playing At Wisconsin:
On Mike Wegzyn At Quarterback And His Progression:
He is definitely a better quarterback now than a year ago. In fact, he's better now than he even was in the Spring. He's just like every other player on our team - more confident, a little bit bigger, and a little bit stronger. His fundamentals have improved dramatically over the course of the year and I think he is just better overall as a quarterback. He still has a way to go; he's still young as a sophomore. I feel much better going into game one this year than I did a year for sure.
On Expectations In Year Two For The Program At The FBS Level:
On The Health Of Rob Blanchflower:
