"No, I'm never surprised because of the fact that I go into every game with the purpose of winning," he said. "The effort that we put in, the things we have to do, that's why we practice ahead of time. We want to be able to understand what the other team is going to try to do to us. But I'm not surprised about that. I'm really happy with the group that I have this year. They've really bonded together, and they like each other. That's a big first step. And they play for each other. Those are things that are going to be important later in the season. Being out here against some of these big schools, it's going to be important to be able to believe that you can win."
