"I think last year going into Barclays, we weren't that prepared," Cleare said Thursday. "I just just think everyone was saying 'We're playing Kentucky,' so I didn't think a lot of guys brought their 'A' game. A lot of guys gave in early. ... I don't think we were that confident. We were hyped, but we weren't that confident. This year we're much more aggressive and we're ready to go."
