On team adversity:
"We just need to stay together as a team. The last thing we need is to have guys fall apart and go by the wayside. We just need to tip our hats to North Dakota State and make the corrections as a team."
On offensive play early in the game:
"Offense was rolling. The line was really moving them back and the first five yards came easy because there were holes."
On the play of NDSU's quarterback:
"North Dakota State is a great team, the quarterback is a good player, but it comes down to what we do on the field and how we perform. Everything they got we gave them. We need to take accountability for how we play. We have to get better. We need to get this thing turned around and come out next week and play better."
