Some of the other threads have me looking back at old articles from this season. Here are some quotes that I found interesting. "Ryan Nelsen is under contract for two more years with the league and isn't going anywhere," Hudson said. 12/7/2002 "There's some risk involved in what we're doing, but it has to be done," Hudson said. "And it's our responsibility, mine and Dave's and the other coaches, to make it work." 12/25/2002 "We were overwhelmed by very systematic teams," Hudson said (after three pre-season losses). "Technically and physically, they were better, but I'm not too worried." 3/15/2003 "I've said it all along: It will be a choppy year until this team really does come together and we find out what our best pieces are and where," Hudson said. 4/28/2003 "It's that decisive play," said defender Mike Petke, who has scored one of United's goals this season. "We've done everything except for that final pass, that selfish shot. It has to happen soon." 5/19/2003 That was just through the end of may. Oh, and there are a thousand "we're just not lucky enough, we have to get the breaks sooner or later" quotes too.
