The key for us is the same thing -- we have to play with an urgency that every play, every possession is vital. We have to be physical, and we have to block out. And we have to play hard, but most importantly, we have to play smart.
We also need to win. We have three teams breathing down our neck just one game out of the final playoff spot. All teams are playing really well right now, but maybe the hottest of any of us is Idaho. Randy Livingston has them playing their best ball right now, and the Stampede went down into Rio Grande Valley and got a big win.
Undoubtedly, if we are going to have a shot to make the playoffs, we are going to have to get very hot ourselves. If we play with the type of urgency and competitiveness that we did against Iowa the other day, I like our chances. Let's see if we can't come up with a big one tonight!
