- Thinks Michigan is coming off its best win of the season. Had time to watch some of the game and thought the Wolverines played very well. Looked confident and shot the ball well, will “certainly be a handful for us.”
- With the talent Michigan has, should be a team that does well this year.
- Not worried about crowd reception, doesn’t think about and doesn’t notice it.
- The game was scheduled before he got to Harvard. Had it not been, playing at Michigan probably wouldn’t have been “high up on anybody’s list,” but “these things happen.”
- Thinks his team is playing well and is coming off their own “best win of the season thus far.” Thinks this game could be very competitive.
- His team has some experience against “BCS opponents”, having already played Colorado at home and beaten them badly.
- Looks at the Michigan game as an opportunity for his team to make a statement early in the season and also looking for the Crimson to gain some confidence.
- Said his team needs to play well in order to win — not good enough yet to play poorly and still eke out a victory.
- He feels no bitterness toward Michigan, understands how the business works. Always loved the opportunity to represent Michigan. His Michigan teams tried their best, that’s all anyone could ask for. Feels good to have had a chance to be at Michigan.
- Harvard is young (like Michigan), still trying to find themselves. Feels like they’re gaining ground and getting better.
- Need junior forward Keith Wright’s production in the post in order for them to have “good balance.”
