“I don't think we feel any pressure. No one has acted like they felt any pressure. We are not caught up in maybe our location is an advantage in some ways, because we are not caught up in the media frenzy of all what goes on in that region between Clemson and Maryland and Virginia and the four schools in North Carolina. We are not really caught up in the day to day excitement that goes on in that area. So a lot of the things that maybe might be cause them to feel pressure, we are not exposed to. But we are struggling along, just trying to win games. I have not seen any signs that any of our kids feel any unnecessary pressure. I think we make some mistake, like all teams do, and maybe we might make some poor decisions here and there, but I haven't seen any signs of our players acting like they feel any unnecessary pressure.”
