Saturday Chaos Theory: Lincoln and Memphis

Josh Rosen says that he has to stop "playing the hero," and just has to focus on winning games...

"I'm angry, I'm frustrated, I'm disappointed," Eichorst said. "At the end of the day, we have to stay together. It's still early in the season, and we need to find ways to win games like this.

"I want to make sure folks understand we've got to get that fixed, and we have to get heading in the right direction, and we have the right coach to do it. But we have to get going."
