Laettner speaks about playing against Michigan in 1992:
Well like I said, Coach K is an amazing coach and he got at us every second of the way and he would never let us think stuff like that. He would make us think, these guys are good, they can beat you and will beat you if you are not on top of your game, so let’s practice and be ready to have a hell of a fight and hopefully we will end up on top. Sure, did everyone know they were brash and, that may be the farthest we would go with it, you know, they are cocky, they are young, and they are brash. Big deal, let’s go out there and beat them.
