Coastal Carolina football, much like many programs around the country, utilizes a motivational word or phrase each week in preparation for its next opponent. This week’s key word is ‘driven’ as the Chanticleers square off with Louisiana-Monroe on Saturday, in their Sun Belt Conference opener at Brooks Stadium in Conway. Head coach Jamey Chadwell feels that’s not just a weekly mantra, but a life long lesson.
“What we want our guys to be all the time, specifically this week, is just driven to be better. We want to be driven to be our very best every single day.”
The Warhawks are one of the few teams in the Sun Belt in which the Chanticleers have had no success. ULM leads the all-time series three games to none, having won the most recent meeting 45-42 back in 2019. Kickoff on Saturday is set for 2:30pm with the game available on ESPN+.
Key comments from Chadwell’s presser …
- Likes where his squad is heading into Sun Belt Conference play. “I think our team has played well in a lot of ways.”
- On the ULM defense that has allowed just two rushing touchdowns. “They play hard and make you turn the ball over. They’re not beating themselves. The challenge is not putting yourself in positions to make you look bad.”
- Says the Bowden family has made a huge impact on people, not just the game of football. Terry Bowden is the head coach at ULM.
- On the recently announced football series with the University of Virginia, “I think it’s great to get another Power-5 to come back here to Brooks. That’s an area that we recruit and it will help us to continue to recruit that state.”
- On Cincinnati playing at Notre Dame this weekend, “at the end of the day, that stuff is out of our control, we saw that last year.” The Bearcats are currently the highest ranked “Group of Five” team in college football.
