97310May 21, 2011, Greencastle, Ind. — "We're working on getting better every day as a team," DePauw University head football coach Robby Long says as his squad prepares for the 2011 season.  Long and his Tigers were featured on tonight's edition of Colts UpClose, which airs on Indianapolis CBS affiliate WISH-TV. The segment shows the team in spring drills. 

"There's a lot of little individual successes that go into" making improvements, adds Long, whose team won its first nine games on its way to a Southern Collegiate Athletic Conference championship and automatic bid to the NCAA Playoffs. "We want to win football games as a team and we know that every day that we come out here and work hard on this grass that we've got to improve."

In a segment recorded a few weeks ago, Long tells Wil Hampton, "We've got 75 guys here working out here in the spring, getting ready for next year."
