Q. Ross, knowing that they're going to come after you with the pass, and this team has struggled in pass defense – as a senior, as a captain, as a defense back – how much do you relish this as an opportunity to go out and make your statement?
ROSS WEAVER: It's a great opportunity not only because we know that they pass, but just to be a secondary, period. You go into practice and you think we have to get better regardless if the team is going to come at you or the team's going to run the ball a lot. It's one aspect of the game that you constantly try to get better at.
Q. Knowing there are going to be some missing players in the (defensive) backfield, how much of a challenge does that put on you all to step it up even more? Who are some of the other players that can make an impact since the focus will definitely be on the backfield there?
ROSS WEAVER: Of course, it's a challenge. But this whole season, we've had injuries throughout the secondary, throughout the defense. It's more just one of those times where we have to buckle up and get ready. When your name is called, you better be ready to play.
