This was not a normal prep time between games. It was a freakin media circus and 24/7 hospital report. The distractions this week were intense with the focus on every thing other than plain old game prep. Prep two guys, will TT play, every podunk media outlet scratching and clawing to get information, constant confabs with a team of neurosurgeons it a wonder they had any time to think and focus on the game.
And then go into the "gates of hell" to hear everyone talk about it, the impossible place to win. Freakin zoo. It was a major test for the coaches and this team.
I will takes this ugly win very happily.
