We've had two good days. Now we'll come back with pads on Thursday and keep it going.
We expect that. I don't think it's a big, big deal, but it's good to hear about it, that you're doing what you're supposed to do.
I hate it. I mean, it's a terrible feeling.
The ball was over the receiver's head. He didn't even try for it. Randy was playing the ball.
After reviewing the film, Nutt said the call was a mystery to him. The ball was over the receivers head, ... He didnt even try for it. Randy was playing the ball.
Starting flanker Cedric Washington rested the hamstring Thursday he first injured a week ago. Cedric Washington has a slightly pulled ham, ... but I think hell be full speed by Saturday night.
I know theres a lot of history there, but playing in the SEC gets you ready for anything, ... Were used to playing in front of 80,000 or 90,000 on the road.
Offensively, we didn't execute. We've got a lot of receivers hurt. ... It kills your momentum not to have the timing when you're missing some guys. It really hurts.
(Snider) is playing hard, he did good. He's another one that's been hurt quite a bit, but he's a guy that's motor is always running. He got in 44 plays. We need him right now. We need him to keep coming.
Offensively, we will have four or five good plays, and then we will have an illegal procedure or an illegal shift. Those are the things that you just can't have. We are just going to have to keep working hard on those types of things.
Baker, the twoyear letterman from Osceola, has a knee injury that hasnt improved as hoped. Chris Baker will have an MRI Saturday to check his knee, ... There is still some problem there. Hell definitely be out.
Andrew Davie has really picked it up. Hes an older guy and very intelligent. Jose Valdez is going to be a very good tackle.
We had every intention of playing Rod, ... but the way Cedric Logan stepped up, it (the intentions to play Coleman) motivated him.
He hasn't taken a lazy step.
I really thought (Johnson) played hard and competed hard. He has a great look in his eye and did a good job for us.
Any time that you lose and you lose the way we did, there is going to be a confidence factor problem. The only way to cure that is to get back on the field and get better and move on.
That was real difficult a real difficult time. ... I understood it, but boy, it really hurt. But the positive swing on that is when he jumped back in, there was a domino effect that Mitch created.
This is the halfway point and it's time to reach down. It's about the way you take the field, how you're listening, whether your correcting your mistakes, whether you're getting better and if you're doing everything you can to help your teammates.
It's been a long time, ... that I've ever been prouder of a football team - to come down here and lay their heart and soul and guts on the line every play and fought them toe to toe. They have a great defense, but I really thought we were going to win the ballgame.
This is first time, either as a player or a coach, I've ever had back-to-back losing seasons. You want to let your fans and players know you're trying to do things better.
We still feel like we have some practice time left and we're encouraging them. But Saturday will be a great day for kids and former players, and we're excited about it.
That is a great question, because I don't think anybody has. I just don't know how. I think he is going to get his. You just hope they are not all 86-yard runs or 90-yard runs where he hits the home run every time.
Everybody is geared up for Saturday. We've been pushing our players to be as good as they can be because we got a big time event coming up.
(Jones) felt like a lot of times he had to be Superman ... because he was the only returning starter.
Our offensive line got better today. Our offensive line has had a tough time with the speed of the game our defense brings. Today we protected and there were some holes for our backs to hit.
