Bulldogs senior John Seaborne said, "Discipline is a lot different, for sure. We can't be a minute late. We can't walk around. We can't take our helmets off, so definitely more serious. We're ready to win."

You know, expect more of themselves than just showing up. We want them to show up, work hard, do things right, and be successful out here and in life."
