Cristobal on looking back, FIU's week ahead

The weekly Sun Belt coaches conferences call is usually a good place to get a sneak preview of Mario Cristobal's message for the next game.

Here's a quote that you'll probably be hearing much of in the days to come:

Can you talk about the importance of the accomplishment your team realized Saturday?

CRISTOBAL: "One thing that, with our players, we are very real with them. You can’t disguise the fact of what that game represented, and what was at stake. With the outcome being what it was, it put us in a position to get to something we were trying to accomplish since we arrived here. It was a great feeling in that locker room afterwards.

"But I think our coaching staff and our players, all year long, have done a great job of once that moment and those high-fives are exchanged, to immediately realize we still have a lot of work to do. We are not where we need to be to accomplish everything we want to accomplish. We have a great team coming in next week. I had a great high school coach and a couple of really good college coaches, and one thing that stuck in my mind is, whenever you do have a good day, that’s when you really coach your hardest. That’s what we intend on doing."
