At head coach Scott Frost‘s weekly press conference he spoke on his team’s performance at Monday’s practice how focused everyone is at the task at hand.
“I thought the energy out there today was exceptionally good,” Frost said. “I think the guys are excited. We can see the light at the end of the tunnel now, so we need to rejuvenate ourselves and ramp it up, and be as good as we can be for the next 12 days.”
With a matchup against rival USF on the horizon, Frost assured fans that his team won’t be looking ahead to the Bulls.
“We’re not going to look ahead,” he said. “That’s not what this group’s going to do. That’s not what our coaching staff is going to allow to happen. We’ve got a lot to play for and we’ve got a lot to play for every week.”
