Quote That Stuck

There were some insightful tidbits that didn't fit into a story Saturday afternoon, but were somehow telling about the Crimson Tide football team. Here are the quote that stuck after Alabama's 24-7 victory over Arkansas:

"It seemed like we had to fight for everything we got. Our goal was 24 points, but it was hard to come by." --Quarterback Brodie Croyle

"I think the center went the wrong way." --DeMeco Ryans on Arkansas' punt block

It was a miscommunication. A big miscommunication…" --Tide Head Coach Mike Shula on the blocked punt.

"We're not where we need to be. We're a third of the way there. We've got to find ways to get better and next week will be tougher." --Quarterback Brodie Croyle

"I think y'all saw DJ's wheels for the first time." --Quarterback Brodie Croyle on his first TD pass to DJ Hall

"I've been waiting for this game (upcoming against Florida) since I signed a scholarship to come to Alabama. They kind of stopped recruiting me, but as soon as I took my visit to Alabama that I wanted to come here." -- Receiver DJ Hall

"We can talk about (Florida) now. This is why you come to Alabama, for games like this. It will be in the national spotlight." --Quarterback Brodie Croyle

"I never expected that to happen in a game." -- DJ Hall, on being left uncovered by defenders, just as it had happened in an Alabama fall scrimmage.

"I don't know if we could have won that game two years ago." -- Linebacker DeMeco Ryans

"Oh my goodness. We've got to get him on the jugs. I think I'm going to start calling him PBU." -- Simeon Castille on Freddie Roach and dropped balls

"I was pounding on the (press box) window like Brodie was going to hear me." -- Offensive coordinator Dave Rader on the fourth quarter TD to Hall

"All I knew is that I was supposed to get the handoff and I looked up and Brodie's throwing it." -- Running back Kenneth Darby on the same play

"We have been looking forward to this Florida game since the season started." --Running back Kenneth Darby

"We are thankful and grateful to come out of this one alive. They're a good football team." --Defensive coordinator Joe Kines
