Nigel Burton: Coming Close "Doesn't Count"
Portland State Head Coach Nigel Burton joined The BFT Friday afternoon to talk about fall camp and the potential of an AFL team coming to Portland.
Headed into the 2013 season Burton clearly has high expectations but this year he needs results.
"Our team was very close last year, we almost got over the hump the year before," he said. "But in the end it's about W's and L's.
"Coming close doesn't count anymore."
The 2013 season marks Portland State's fourth year under Coach Burton since taking over for Jerry Glanville after the 2009 season.
Portland State opens play Thursday, Aug. 29 against Eastern Oregon.
