I think the big deal might have been the lopsided ballgame. A lot of times as a coach, you get embarrassed. I know if you beat a guy by 10 runs or more, he was apt to say, 'You ran up the score.' Sometimes that can be taken to a different level.

I was happy for her that she could see all the hard work come to fruition. To reach goals like that, not everybody can do. It was a life well lived and well served.

We got our night game, but not on Saturday night. We'll have to be like the football players and focus.

The football team feels just like you do, just like we all do. They want to help.

Fresno State is one of the top teams we're looking at. I think our last conversation with them was pretty positive, but I wouldn't say it's done until ESPN finishes talking with them. We need ESPN to cooperate and pay them some money.
