“We have to. To me, I go back to that, losing's bad enough but you better not waste it. It's here and there's a ton to learn from,” Campbell explained Monday. “I just know the frustration, the anger I have, that motivates me. I'm pretty sure it does with our players, so we will be ready for this game. We will be ready. We will, physically, emotionally. We will be ready for this game.”
“I just know me and I know these coaches and I know these players,” Campbell stated. “We've got a lot of prideful players. We will be ready, I know it, 100 percent.”
