Mike Rice before Rutgers' first practice

Some Mike Rice quotes courtesy of Adrian Fedkiw, who was in Piscataway for the first Rutgers practice of the Rice era.

On his offense... “Basically this team has been so offensively challenged that I had to do some drillwork.”

On the seniors... “They have to have urgency.”

On Dane Miller... “He’s one of the most talented individuals that I have, he’s responded great.”

On his talent level... “They’re all buying in, teamwork over talent.”

On basketball instinct... “I don’t want my players to think. We want to make them more basketball instinctive so they won’t have to think, their reactions will be in their DNA. Everyday we’ll improve.”

On the Big East... “We’re in the most physically demanding league in the country.”

On expectations... “When you have a formula, a plan, you’re going to be successful. Students, alumni and season ticket holders will see.”
