Blair White Alamo Bowl Press Conf. Remarks

Having the season we had, 6-6, you wouldn't think maybe we would be playing in such a big Bowl. But the Alamo Bowl is supposed to be pretty nice. So we're excited to go down to San Antonio and play.

BLAIR WHITE: Having the season we had, 6-6, you wouldn't think maybe we would be playing in such a big Bowl. But the Alamo Bowl is supposed to be pretty nice. So we're excited to go down to San Antonio and play.

Q. It was two years ago that you kind of started to emerge on the scene as a walk-on at the Champs Bowl. Do you go to some of the younger receivers knowing that you guys are down a couple and remind them of your situation in case maybe they don't know, about a Milton Colbert type, those kind of guys, just about this is their chance, their big stage?

BLAIR WHITE: Yeah, there are going to be guys playing that haven't played all year, with the guys we have now. So I think that's important for me to let those guys know that they have to go into the game preparing like they're going to play because they're going to have to. And some of those guys can make some plays. So we'll be excited to see what they can do.

Q. Coach Dantonio has made a big deal a lot about the three straight bowl games. How much has he stressed that all to you, just obviously getting to the third one and now that it's here, just what this means for the program?

BLAIR WHITE: Well, it's important for the program. And I think it is always nice to reflect back and see what you've done. But at the same time, we've got to focus on winning this game, because in the past we haven't won many bowl games. And we have a chance to do that this year against a team that puts up a lot of points, I hear. So we'll be excited to play them.
