Prime Time Performer: Mo Barry


WEEK’S PRIMETIME PERFORMER. THE STATEMENT CAME MINUTES AFTER
A NEAR UPSET. MOHAMED BARRY: WE SHOULD BEAT
THEM IN THE HORSE SHOE. WE SHOULD BE OHIO STATE IN THE
HORSE SHOE. WE WERE THIS CLOSE. MATT: LAST WEEK’S LOSS TO OHIO
STATE WASN’T CLOSE AT ALL, BUT
MOHAMED BARRY HOLDS MUCH OF THE
SAME SENTIMENT FROM ONE YEAR
AGO. MOMAHED BARRY: WE’RE NOT GOING
TO DOUBT OURSELVES. WE’RE NOT GOING TO SAY THAT WE
ARE NOT A TEAM AND NOT A PROGRAM
THAT SHOULD BEAT OHIO STATE. IT’S — WE’VE GOT TO GET BETTER,
AND YOU WILL SEE DOWN THE ROAD
MAYBE, AND THAT’S ALL THAT
MATTERS RIGHT NOW. IT’S NOT ABOUT OHIO STATE, IT’S
ABOUT US. MATT: BARRY LEADS THE TEAM IN

YOU’RE IN THAT POSITION, IT’S
ALWAYS ABOUT THEM BEFORE YOU,
BUT HOW YOU TAKE CARE OF THEM ALSO IS DOING THE BEST YOU CAN
DO ON THE FIELD. MATT: IN WHAT LITTLE FREE TIME

A BIG READER. HE CALLS IT MIND FOOD. HIS FAVORITES ARE
AUTOBIOGRAPHIES OF HIGH PROFILE
ATHLETES LIKE TOM BRADY AND RAY
LEWIS, AND HE TAKES AWAY LITTLE
NUGGETS ON HOW TO DEAL WITH
ADVERSITY. MOHAMED BARRY: THE THING IS,
WE’RE NOT TRYING TO JUST GET
BACK, WE’RE TRYING TO GET
BETTER. WHATEVER THAT IS, WHATEVER
PARTICULAR THINGS YOU HAVE TO
WORK ON YOURSELF, YOU’VE GOT TO
BE MINDFUL OF THAT AND THEN
ATTACK IT AS HARD AS YOU CAN AND
FIX THOSE PROBLEMS, AND NOT WITH —
MATT: FOR BARRY AND THE
BLACKSHIRTS, THEIR NEXT STEP IN
IMPROVING AND GETT
