Dakota Walker Discusses Breakout Performance
Question: Was this game closer than you wanted?
Answer: Even though we got the "W," we didn't play a good game. That's what we have the whole season for: to get better.
Question: Were you blitzing on the last play?
Answer: I was just trying to shuffle it up and not get up field too quick. That's what they were doing all night, trying to string us out and get up field. I was just trying to string the ball out and try to make a play. It worked out pretty good. It was a good call by Coach Nix.
Question: Is there a feeling of being satisfied after beating a Division 1-AA team?
Answer: A "W" is a "W," I don't care if we're playing a D-III team, it doesn't matter. At the same time, we shouldn't have made it this close of a game. We feel that we could have done a lot better. At the same time, we got the W so we're satisfied with the W.
Question: Where do you see this team compared to other SEC teams?
Answer: We've got a little work to do, but it's not like we can't get there. We just have some work to do.
Question: What were you trying to do on the last play?
Answer: I knew he was going to pitch it because he had it strung out the whole time. [I tried to] just shuffle with it and slow play and just time up the pitch. That's basically what I tried to do. I was trying to do that the whole night, but it finally worked at the end.
Question: Was there a sigh of relief when the game finally ended?
Answer: Yeah, there was. They were only a touchdown down, so it was good.
