You know they’re every down, and I just told them all I enjoyed every single day of practice here. I just couldn’t wait to get out there. It’s a great group of guys to work with. I knew they would give everything they had tonight you know. Scoreboard didn’t go in our way, but it wasn’t because lack of effort, this is just a tremendous group of guys.”
