Army coach talks up improved UConn team
"They are an improved team, they are a much better football team and that is to be expected," Monken said. "Coach Diaco is in his second year and just like our guys are improving. They are a big football team, big up front on defense, athletic, I am impressed with their special teams and their guys play hard. It was impressive to see that win they had last week. They were behind in the ball game and found a way to come back and win and that is easy to do, it doesn't matter who you are playing, they did a really good job. I am impressed with their quarterback, he is a good player and they've got a bunch of guys. The big tight end (Tommy Myers), holy mackerel, he is a load. We will have our hands full. I know we are not going to win the height and weight competition, they are going to be a lot bigger than us and that creates a lot of challenges. We are going to have to play
really well and execute if we are going to have a chance."
