Frost began by complimenting his team’s character. They didn’t just want to win at BIG TEN foe Maryland. They expected it.
“I liked their attitude the best,” Frost said of his team. “They went up there with an attitude that they expected to win. That’s a big step in the progression of this whole thing.”
With a 3-0 Memphis team, a team that recently defeated UCLA, coming to town this weekend, Frost is ready for a great atmosphere for another big game this weekend.
“I’m ready to see this place packed,” he said. “I think our team has done enough to earn a full stadium. It’s going to be a great game. Memphis is a really good team with a really good win under its belt. This should be a great football game.”
