UW Week: Scott Chandler Q&A

Scott Chandler's four years at Iowa have flown by, according to him. He played as a true freshman when his brother Nathan was Iowa's quarterback, and he has been one of the more productive tight ends in school history.

Q: Can you believe that it's your Senior Day already?

Scott Chandler: It went by fast. I can't believe this is the last game in Kinnick, my last year. I just want to go out there and give it all we have and get a win.

Q: How important is it for you to win your last home game?

Chandler: Anytime you are in Kinnick, you want to win. It's special. Being our last game in there, it will be important to all of us, the seniors especially. We will give it all we have.

Q: What does it take to get this team back on track now?

Chandler: We have to go back to work. We have to really focus on what is ahead. We really can't look back, we have to learn from what happened but we have to focus on the future and keep working hard.

Q: Is this team fractured in any way?

Chandler: Yeah. I never feel like we have had any dissention between players. We are guys that get along real well, and we know what we are capable of and we know that we didn't have our best effort out there on Saturday. We are not going to stand around and point fingers. We will go back out there and work hard and see what we can do.

Q: Coach Ferentz said that you played like fat cats on Saturday. What does that mean to you?

Chandler: It just means that we didn't go out there with a sense of urgency. I thin that we didn't go out with a purpose, and I think that was all he was pointing to. I don't think he was saying that we are fat cats, but that we played like it and I think that is accurate.

Q: How do you get that intensity back?

Chandler: I think going out there today is the first step. We are in Kinnick, and it's going to be our Senior Day and if we are not ready to go for that, we probably shouldn't be playing football.

Q: Do you think you will have some thick emotions when you run out there on Saturday and see your family?

Chandler: I don't know if it's something that I can anticipate. It's just kind of….I don't know what it will be like. I can't really put it into words how that will feel.
