09.Oct.2016 GA’s First Pac Win
What a difference a week can make. Last week some where questioning the GA hire, and now they have their first conference win and some momentum.
The big takeaway, for me, is that now the players will believe what GA is saying. What coaches talk and results aren’t there, it becomes hard to care/easy to tune out the coach. Now he’ll get their ear because he can show the players results. Players will likely believe in themselves much more after this one, knowing they can compete with Pac athletes. It’s big for the psychological aspect and moral of players, fans, and GA. Just good stuff all around, and now we’ll see how it translates. They’re so thin it will be hard to keep momentum.
Obviously this was a big win in terms of recruiting, too, with some key guys visiting.
