|"We feel like this team shouldn't be losing by 30 to anybody. But it's a work in progess. We can all play better. I can definitely play better, take care of the ball better. We can all play better defensively, and we all know that. It's still early in the season. It's not time to start panicking. We told people it's going to take some time for us to come together, and it's looking that way still."|
