Last year, at least at the beginning of the season, Mark Gottfried and State dealt with very high expectations. This year? Not so much. Gottfried says most people have lowered their expectations:Â ââHang in there coach, I know itâs going to be a long year for you. I hear it everywhere I go.â
That may be more fun than last year, when expectations were a burden. And it's not like State doesn't have talent. They're still thin, and much younger, but there is some nice talent on this team. Let's see what they can do with it.
