GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. The Mavericks had their standard light Monday practice, as the season opener Saturday draws near.
This could very well be the year that we see head coach Russ Martin and his team go from the middle of the pack to conference contenders.
For that to happen, the offense needed to be much more consistent than it was last year. According to starting quarterback Aric Kaiser and Martin, they've worked on just that and have seen marked improvements.
"It's night and day compared to last year as far as how I feel about it and I just am ready to get there Saturday," Kaiser said.
"We've seen guys play with intensity," Martin said, "we've been a more physical football team this year, and that's kind of what we need to be."
