“We’ve talked about some changes we need to make from a mental preparation and mental standpoint,” Urban said. “There’s a reason we have the record that we do and we have to figure that out. Our coaching staff has offered things to improve on to change our record and put some wins together before the playoffs, but we’ve got to make those changes in mental preparation. In practice we need to be more competitive with each other and compete in practice to the best of our ability. We have a lot of room for improvement and I don’t think we’ve tapped into our potential yet.
“This is a game we need to play well and play well on the road, which is something we really haven’t done in the conference. That’s something we’ve got to change.”
