Kenny Walker answered questions from the media during Arizona week.
If the above video doesn't work, try this version:
On how tough a loss it was:
Since I’ve been here, we haven’t beaten them. It was a tough loss. A lot of players took it hard, including me. It’s a great learning experience and moving forward, there is a lot we can learn about it.
On how they pick themselves up:
We have a 24-hour rule. So 24-hours after the game, we think about it, go over it. Anything after 24 hours, we forget about it and move on to the next. If we have a chance to play them again, we know what we have to do.
On if they’ve talked about playing Stanford again:
We plan on doing it, but we have to take it day by day. We have to play the opponents we have coming up.
On tightening the receiver rotation:
To me, it doesn’t really matter. I have trust in all of our receivers, but if that’s what he thinks is better for our team, so be it.
On if the rotation gets tough to get into a rhythm:
I don’t think about it as that. When I have my opportunity, I take it and encourage others when they go in.
On the message after drops:
The message is stay in the moment, play the next play and forget about what happened and make a big play, another big play is coming ahead of you, stay focused and your head in the game.
On when he doesn’t catch a deep ball:
If I don’t catch a deep ball, it’s ok, I’ll try to catch a hitch route or a slant. Whatever I catch, I try to get plus yardage.
On if there is a timing issue with the quarterback:
It plays a little with both sides. Maybe it’s overthrown, maybe it’s the other way around.
On getting pushed out in the end zone:
It was kind of a late pass, but I made the effort to catch it and keep my feet in. The rule is you can push me out, and that had me confused. As long as I made the effort. Maybe not widen out as much, when I came off the ball, he pushed it outside and I had to get back outside. If I had stayed straight, it may have made a difference.
On his hairstyle:
I’m getting the beads back tomorrow, I’m just letting my hair breathe. I’ll do something every week.
On what color his beads will be:
I can’t tell you, it will be a surprise. It’s different. I just look at the beads and if I feel comfortable with them, I’ll go with it. I have a big pile of them. It’s great. I look at the colors and whatever one I feel, I’ll go with them. I have a headband underneath, so when I get them in, it’s a slight cushion.
On if he’d stick with a color if he did well in them:
No, you have to keep changing them. I thought about the gold, because I had those for the Texas A&M game, but every week I change them.
