from Michael Arace of the Columbus Dispatch,
“There is a huge difference between a 90-point team and a 100-point team,” Hitchcock said. “The next step here is to become more aggressive both offensively and defensively. We feel we can play a better, more aggressive, 200-foot game. We feel we can do a better job with role identification, and marry our players’ perception of who they think they are and how we feel they can help the team. We feel we can have better special teams by involving more players.
“We’re past the ‘getting-to-know-you’ stage, we’re past setting up the base camp, and now we’re ready to climb the mountain.”
Hitchcock thinks that when there is nothing left for him to learn, then there is more for him to lose. He thinks he has learned something this summer. He is ready to apply it. He is itching to.
