Gregg Marshall has said this team had issues within the locker room regarding ego and attitude. In February, he said this was the most he's ever had to be a psychologist as well as a head coach.

"This is the most," said Marshall. "I don’t know why other than they’re pretty young. Most I’ve ever dealt with things like this."
