Play Bobby Wilder Press Conference (Video and Transcript)
Football 09/04/2017

Good afternoon everybody. Good afternoon to all our 12th Monarchs out there in Monarch Nation. Coming off a 31-17 win Saturday night at home versus Albany. Puts our record at 1-0. Compliments to Albany, they're a good football team. They played smart. They played physical. I can understand why they were a preseason top 25 team. They play in a good conference, and we wish them the best of luck the reminder of the year. Besides getting the win, which was critical Saturday night, we had 56 players play in the game. Seventeen players played for the first time, a lot of redshirt freshmen. Jordan Hoy who was a transfer, played for the first time. Nick Rice kicked well, he was the only true freshman that saw time in this game. Generally, what happens when you get that first game experience, it helps you going from week one to week two, where usually you make the most progress as a team. Hopefully we'll see that progress this week in practice with 17 guys playing for the first time. Rarely do you lose the turnover battle by two, and still win the game. Statistically that's not supposed to happen so I feel fortunate that we were able to win by a couple touchdowns. We played smart in this game. We only had three penalties for 30 yards, that's a good sing. Losing the turnover battle, and then being as disciplines as we were with penalties really helped us. Offensively, we only ran 57 plays this game. We were 4-of-12 on third down. We need more plays, we need to get more conversions. Special teams were outstanding in this game. All of our units met all of our goals. We punted the ball well, we kicked the ball well. Our coverage units were very good. We were mistake free with substitutions; no penalties on special teams which is really big, we had an explosive return on our punt return unit for 31 yards that led to a touchdown when we were up 7-3 early in the second quarter. Def
