CIRCLE OF TRUST/BOM:

MOLESKIN:
In this gloom it was an artic beatdown with wind coming into the parking garage from every direction…so much so the stairs were welcomed. A lot of audibles this morning to accommodate someone’s complaints about the amount of leg exercises (Coach K is such a nice guy). It was cold, nobody denied that, but once we got settled at the AO it was just another day. Yeah getting out of bed sucks, but it makes you and those around you better men when you do. Every morning ya gotta buckle down. Fire up the truck. And don’t look back. See y’all in the gloom.
