Coker addresses Willie, Ryan and more

Coach Larry Coker addressed several areas of his team today. Here's what he was talking about:

Q: With all the off-season distractions, is that something you're going to talk to your players about -- maybe trying to limit the distractions going into the season?

Lou Holtz had a statement that there are going to be three bad things happen to our football team -- `I don't know what they are, I don't know when it'll happen. There are three bad things that will happen. Now it's how you handle it that makes your success.' We always talk about these things at the start of the year -- don't be a distraction, do the right things at the right time. That'll limit a lot of those things. But there will be some issues that come up. There always are. But we will address them.
