On his assessment of the defense:
Anytime you lose you look at the mirror and not out the window, you look at yourself first and want to have back a few of those calls. I thought they hung in there and fought like the dickens to get back in the 4th quarter and I was proud of the way our guys fought back. You have calls you wish you could get back. So I look at myself.
On being without Deon Hollins and Takk McKinley:
Not an excuse, but some of the guys were playing that position and they're not getting a lot of reps. When Takk got hurt early that threw a wrinkle in how we did our substitution. I thought Coach Angus McClure did a nice job adjusting to that but we had guys playing positions they didn't have a lot of reps in.
On how he looks at himself:
You're never going to call the perfect game, but you want to put your guys in a great position. Some plays, you get mad at yourself and you look at it, shoulda, coulda, woulda. I'm always hardest on myself. Before I ever criticize anyone on their mistakes, I have to look at my mistakes.
On if that means knowing Mazzone's offense:
The one that always affects these things is when the quarterback runs the ball, it creates a challenge. I thought our guys fought in the 4th quarter. There was no give up on the sidelines, they thought they were going to tie that up and they did.
On Texas A&M's offense in the 3rd quarter:
They got into tempo and a good rhythm. On the one score, they threw the ball back behind on us. Marcus (Rios) was in a good position, it wasn't a great thrown ball, we got pressure on him. That got us back on our heels. I actually think it was a bad throw, the guy adjusted well, give them credit, they practice too.
On the run defense:
Anytime you look at, they had I think 200 yards, you look at missed tackles. If you're going to be a good defense, you have to make those.
On what Adarius Pickett brings to the defense:
We ask Pick to do a lot of things for us. Coach Martin has done a really good job of getting depth that way. Guys that can play different positions. Our guys rally around him a lot. He gives us a chance to be a better football team. As he plays more, he's going to get better and better.
