It's All in the Execution.
Flynn: Your guess is as good as mine. We couldn't execute. We looked back on film and we had every opportunity. Whether it was receivers' fault or lineman's fault, it wasn't 11 guys doing their job. A dropped ball here, a bad decision, there it just didn't seem like we could execute.
Publicity is Ancient History
AF: That's all it is…is pre-season publicity. That doesn't win you ball games. That doesn't make a good throw or catch a great ball. All that is, is talk and we haven't done that or lived up to that expectation. But the exciting thing is we haven't touched the surface of our offense. All we can do is go up from here.
Curvey: It was a tough loss. We'll look at the mistakes and try to move on. We won't dwell on it too much.
AF: We're looking forward to the
challenge. A lot of people on the outside think since we got beat by
Reggie Stephens: It's always fun to go out there and play the best. We're looking forward to playing the defending Big 12 and National champs.
BC: You never know until the end of the game. I wouldn't count as out. Texas is a great football team as everybody knows, but you just can't run away from a team because of who they are. We'll go out and play them.
So You're Saying There's a Chance
RS: The only people that count are in our locker room. As long as we feel like we can go down there and win with that attitude, we've got a shot.
BC: There is a chance in everything you do. It's about how you prepare and focus and get ready to attack the next game.
AF: Everyone on the outside doesn't think we have a chance. We don't have anything to lose. We might as well pin our hair back and go to work and see what we can do. We're looking forward to the challenge.
‘Home' Field Advantage
AF: It's exciting with my family and friends coming to watch and actually get to see me play in person, instead of on TV.
BC: It's always good to go anywhere close to home. I'll have my family there, just having them close by is always a plus.
BC: Being from
Business over Pleasure
RS: It's always fun to go back home and see friends and family, but it is definitely a business trip. I'm looking forward to the challenge.
CUT OF THE WEEK:
BC: It's the Big 12 conference and the race begins now. The non conference is out of the way, except for UNI. But now we can focus on the conference.
