Jordan Payton talked Monday to the media.
On Cal taking the deep ball away:
Every week you go with the mindset to take what they give us. They played to take the deep ball away. The whole stadium saw that. A win is a win. It felt great to win up there, especially how long, 12 years or something, to get over that hump is something special. Especially last time when we were up there when I was a freshman, it was a completely different story. A great game though, and now on to Colorado.
On blocking so much on screens that he got a hold:
I'm still upset about that call. I think that was my first penalty here and my first holding call ever. It's going to happen, it's part of the game. I should have used better technique. In the end, it is what it is. I thought we did a great job as a receiver corps, staying in front and blocking and pushing ourselves as blockers. It felt good as an offense.
On the ref throwing the flag at him:
They told me to throw it back at him. I was like 'wow, he really tried to hit me with his flag.' It's all good, but I still don't feel like it was a holding call.
On still not putting a complete game together besides ASU:
It can be frustrating out there, but you just have to have faith. You can see how good we are and how fast we can score. One drive it was 94-yards in like 28 seconds before half. To try and do something like that in each and every series is something we try to do. I look forward to putting that together against Colorado. They're actually a very good team. I looked at them today.
We can't fumble the ball or throw interceptions. We can't drop passes. I know that's not a turnover but those are things we can't do and we'll clean it up this week.
On how effective the offense is with tempo and the short passing game:
The offense moves. As you see when we get into rhythm and Paul gets going and we start getting those runs going and start throwing those quick passes. It's a machine that keeps going. As long as we stay efficient, we'll be ok.
On Colorado's Nelson Spruce:
He's haunted me for years. He's been catching those passes. I played safety so I had to gameplan against him. For him, he's always been a phenomenal player. In high school, I used to get so mad playing him because he'd kill us. Im excited to play him and am happy for him and he deserves everything he's doing.
On Colorado's defense:
They're athletic and do a good job. USC played them extremely well last week but they'll try to bounce back this week and be tougher. I know every single week a team is going to bring their A game. It's going to be an exciting game.
