Maine coach Jack Cosgrove says Saturday’s playoff game with Northern Iowa is giving the Black Bears a second chance. Maine ended the regular season with a loss to New Hampshire and at the time Cosgrove thought it dealt a fatal blow to their playoff chances.
Cosgrove says he felt privileged to go back to the players who were down and now they are back up and ready to play again. Going on the road in the playoffs is nothing new for Maine. He says they’ve never hosted a playoff and came to UNI in 2001.
Cosgrove says they are just glad to have the chance to keep playing. He says they’re excited and honored to be in the playoffs. Maine is 8-4 on the season.
