Football.com has an interview with McIntyre up on its site. It was conducted by J.J. Pesavento, senior editor at football.com. There are some interesting questions asked:
Your team started out 8-1 this last season, then the wheels seemed to come off. What happened?
It's hard to say what happened. I can't really pinpoint it. It was almost like the USC game was the pinnacle of our season or something. We had a lot to play for, like the WAC Championship, which I know I was playing for. I don't know if everyone else had the same mindset, but things just kind of fell apart and people just stopped playing as hard. But it's really hard to pinpoint one thing.
