They were loose and we kept it that way. We knew when it was time to go out and play we would be ready. But against Virginia, I was tight, they were tight. There was tons of anxiety. We had already been through that.
So, if we get another delay, maybe we will play even better."
On the emotional swing and keeping the guy even-keeled:
"We weren't even-keeled. It was a hard week. It was a hard loss a week ago. We translated that into work. We worked them hard this week. They wanted to be worked hard. That gave them the chance to play like this, but there was nothing even-keeled about this.
Then the point where we finally got to the game, and the delay, it was just like, c'mon. All we could do was laugh. But eventually, they were ready."
On the biggest difference from last week to this week's game offensively:
"We prepared better. We prepared harder. We prepared longer. We prepared more diligently as coaches and players. Again, our practice model from Monday through Thursday, in my opinion, is what the difference was. "
