Coach likes road games. Home crowds bring emotion and "emotions are just false fuel." Now, if we can only get those pesky students out from behind the home bench....

^^Students have been moved away from the home bench in Halton! And we moved the weekly coaches show away from campus so no one will show up for it either!

Operation "Kill the Excitment" is well on schedule!
