I wanted to take the crowd out of the game. This was a no-huddle offense, but this was not a hurry-up offense. They're two different things. This was so that I didn't have to have guys not hear the play in the huddle. It was just so that we could take the noise out of the game.

This is not the end of the season, remember. This is the sixth game of the season. You have to carefully and tactfully decide when to use them. And I toiled over whether to use them or not. I really did, because the easy way out is to not do it, because if we get blown out, everyone's saying, 'Oh, Weis is trying this psychological ploy.' But if you would have seen how fired-up they were when they went in the locker room, I felt that for our players, as much as they were putting into this game, I should give them something in return.

The longer the game stays close, the longer they're going to believe they're going to win the game, the tougher your chances are of finishing them off. Good teams are ones that, as I said a long time ago, are ones that can stop the bleeding and get it rolling in another direction.

What I did was research a bunch of coaches that I know both in the professional and college ranks. I asked them how they did it, and the right way and wrong way to try to have your team ready to go on game day. It doesn't do me any good if my guys are ready to go on Dec. 27. It's whether they are ready to go on Jan. 2.
