    The way Strong is talking right now it does not sound like they are a 14 point favorite in this game. Is he talking that way just to be PC?

    Hard to say, man. This team is so young, I just think there's no way to truly know what we're gonna get. I mean, I could see a 20 point win or I can also just as easily see us winning by 1-2 points. I think he's just hedging his bets and being cautiously optimistic as to not sound cocky. I don't think the two teams are as far apart as a lot of our fans think, though. Just my $.02

    Coaches are often wise to not assume they will win, that attitude can be contagious and lead to the players being complacent.
