"The defense played very well and that's good to see. It's not good to see when we (offense) are scrimmaging them, but in the back of your head, it's always good to see them do well."
Berry gave himself a "mediocre" rating, but he came away with some valuable insights he will immediately address.
"I need to stop taking so many risks. I think I was a little bit too confident and tried to put the ball in where it probably shouldn't have been. So I think I took too many risks."
Crowton added his assessment. "I feel like the speed he is playing at is really good right now. He's getting back, he's seeing things and he's getting rid of the ball quick. We'll have to look at what happened with the turnovers, but he had some good plays. I think he had a touchdown or two."
It should be noted two Berry interceptions were tipped by defensive players, a good omen for an aggressive Cougar defense.
Berry commended his defensive teammates, "They played very well and they're very aggressive. Bronco's got them in tip-top shape and they're going to come out, be aggressive, take some risks and play very hard.
"It's always nice," he said, "to go live because it helps everybody get used to team speed and see how we are physically. It just helps us out a lot. It will be nice to come back tomorrow and practice even better, just from today."
Berry had complementary remarks for his front five, the BYU offensive line.
"They did very well. They're going to be very good. They're very talented. The only thing is they're a little inexperienced, but that's not going to hold them back. They're going to do very well. I think Ofa (Mohetau), our new recruit, he moved some guys pretty far. He's going to be very good."
Mohetau has been receiving reps with the first and second team offense.
