Friday mornings when DU is playing at home, Coach Gwozdecky appears on the 950 AM "The Fan" in Denver. Needless to say the conversation drifted around to "you know who" and Gwozdecky was able to shed a little more light on the situation.
Note: The interview was paraphrased* and all quotes may not be in context.
