Wednesday Transcript

Defensive Coordinator Corwin Brown met briefly with the media Wednesday as the Irish prepare for Boston College.

Could you talk a little bit about Matt Ryan and what you've seen of him?

"He's really a good quarterback, probably the best we've seen. A really good decision-maker; chunks it around pretty good and hits all of the throws. The more you see, the more you realize, this guy is up there; really good."

What momentum have you been able to take from last week's game and carry over into this week's practice?

"Win or lose, you come out and do what you do. You have to work on the things you need to work on. We have done the same thing as far as working on the things that we have needed to work on, trying to improve, trying to get better collectively as a group and then individually. So those are the things we are really focused on more than anything else."

Have you noticed a little extra hop in the players' step this week?

"I don't know if it's an extra hop. The guys have been practicing fairly well for a few weeks now. You would like to think every time out the guys get better and better. In that regards, it's been okay."

Can you talk about the development of Pat Kuntz?

"He's done a decent job for us. He's played hard and made plays. He's done the things we have asked him to do and that's been encouraging."

Joe Brockington isn't that big or fast, but what does he do right to hang on to his job?

"Well, you know, if you do what you are asked to do, size and speed doesn't really matter; it helps at times I guess. But mentally if you are on top of your game and you know what needs to be done and you know where your strengths and weaknesses are, then you just overcome them by playing smart. I guess he's done a decent job at that."

So he's a guy that really knows his position then?

"He's done a decent job like a lot of people. He's gone out and done okay." Top Stories
