A&M Responds to Loss in Boulder

Texas A&M head coach Dennis Franchione, and Aggie players Jordan Chambless and Jaxson Appel talk about the 41-20 loss to Colorado.

Head Coach Dennis Franchione: I just think we don't block and execute very well. As much as anything, Colorado has got a good defense. We've got to do the little things better.

I don't think we ever got ourselves in down and distance to control the tempo. We just didn't put ourselves in better situations with the chains and things like that.

I thought they covered well, they rushed well, they protected well from the early part of the game. I thought their secondary did a good job.

On Expectations
I don't think you can expect anything like that. But they've got a good football team. They played very well and we didn't have a lot of answers for them.

(Joel Klatt) was hot as a pistol. They were moving him around a lot with naked boots, and we had a hard time getting pressure on him. The whole football game played about as good the first quarter or half as you could play.

We expected (CU's) defense to play well. They've had two shut outs in four games now, and I don't know if there's another team in Division I who has got that.

DB Jordan Chambless: Pretty much (CU) came out and did exactly what we thought they would do. They bootleg well, they roll out well, and today they did both of those and in general played well. From the beginning of the game, they controlled the tempo.

We knew coming into this game that (Quinn Sypniewski) and (Joe Klopfenstein) were their best receivers. We had some schemes to cover them, but they threw some new stuff at us, crossing routes and such, and did what we didn't want them to do, which is get the ball in their hands.

DB Jaxson Appel: It's going to be a quiet plane ride home. We came out and didn't play well. Colorado flat out beat us soundly. We have to get back to work, practice hard, and believe we are a much better team than this.
