"Obviously it was a reality check for our guys, compared to playing ourselves and Division-II's," said Monson. "I'm not concerned at where we are at right now, but where we are going. I told our guys our only chance was to play hard and get them out of rhythym. They had a lot of experience and were grown men, we are still young. We just need to get our guys to settle down. Our offense is going to be ragged for awhile. We don't have a choice (but to play hard) and we need to get better defensively. Our measure is not by the scoreboard... we need to use every minute of the game out there (to get experience). We have a lot of guys that are not ready to play, but we have to throw them in there anyway. That's going to get them better."
The 49ers hit the road for the first time this season as they play at Montana State on Tuesday night at 6 pm Pacific.
