08:14 AM ET 10.17 | Al Golden wants to be prepared for an angry team -- his own. After reviewing film of his team's 30-24 win at North Carolina Saturday, UM coach Al Golden spoke with reporters for nearly 15 minutes Sunday. Q: Are you concerned at all about facing Georgia Tech after a loss? They could be an angry team. A: "An angry team? We're 3-3. I hope we're angry. I hope the kids are angry that we're 3-3. We have enough to worry about. We can't worry about what's going on with the other team before we play them. Again, it speaks to -- every time I have to answer these questions -- what kind of swirls around this program. Right now, we have to get our kids focused on the process and executing everyday and let the product take care of itself."

Yeah, great proofreading huh? I'll be the first to admit I'm not too good at it either. But I'm not a major sport magazine employee either.

How was your trip Deep Creek? I hope you had a good time, and brought the right Wife home, wait, at least the good looking one, wait, may have not been one there, oh well, had a good time I hope???!!!! hahahaha

It was great. Got to see a lot of old friends and of course we drank a little too much but hey, it's Vegas.

The casinos kicked me in the nuts but the golf was absolutely fantastic. Weather was perfect and the two courses we played were in fantastic shape. In fact, they were too good. Fairways were soft and lush...absolutely no roll.

I played pretty well considering I hadn't played much this summer. But damn getting old is hell. They say were start shrinking but I swear the older I get the further from the ground I get...or at least it seems that way when I play golf.

Maybe the two teams can just play a game of "Angry Birds" since they are both so angry.

Was that the dude hitting the golf balls off the top of his luxury normal Texas palace, when that great looking gal drove up, hiked up her skirt and showed him how to hit the ball, I'm guessing, I was watching the legs.
