Bobby Petrino met with the media on Monday afternoon to reflect on the Cards season opening win against Purdue and preview North Carolina. The Cards will travel to Chapel Hill this weekend for their first game against the Tarheels since joining the ACC.
We’re going to work on a lot of things to get ready for this weekend, to go on the road and play North Carolina, a team that looks good on video,” Petrino said.
“They look good on video, they run the ball well and we got two quarterbacks again to prepare for. Defensively, they’ve got a lot of experience—you turn the video on from last year and this year and it’s a lot of the same players playing, particularly at linebacker and in the secondary. We just have to have a great week of preparation. I know a lot of people have said that you improve the most from week one to week two. I don’t know how that’s ever been measured, but I do know that I hope it works this week, that we make the most improvement ever from week one to week two.”
