"I was disappointed in the two quick touchdowns we gave up to begin the second half. Especially the second one, we had just scored on a big play go up by 11 points, but then they went right back down and scored. I was disappointed in that."
"Our defense did a great job in the first half and they had a hard time moving the ball and getting first downs. The second half was a different story, especially with those big plays. Overall, our defense fought hard and competed all day, and they did a great job two times when they were put into a tough spot after the interception and blocked punt, and held them to two field goals."
"There were several opportunities for us, especially at the end, but you have to give Nebraska credit. Our guys competed and didn't quit, and I thought we were going to win it there at the end."
"I am extremely disappointed and frustrated that we did not win. You come down here and the main goal is to win. I am proud of the kids, they competed down to the last play and handled themselves with class. We just didn't quite perform well enough to win."
"I love these seniors and they all have great futures. I am excited about our young guys too. I want to thank our fans for coming down, that's another reason I am disappointed. I thank all of them for coming. I want everyone to hang in there with us, there are still 364 days left in 2009, and we are going to work every day to make it a good one."
