4/5 Rick Neuheisel Quotes

Rick Neuheisel took time out of today's Junior day activities to have a brief word with the media following today's practice. Here's what he had to say.

On Justin Robbin's Status: "We'll know Monday. We're hopeful that it's not a long term injury. He had an MRI today. It's stiff and there's nothing that says it's going to be a long term injury, but the MRI will be more conclusive."

On Zach Tuiasosopo's red jersey: "He banged his ankle the first day. He'll be fine. Hopefully he'll be ready to go by next weekend."

On the state of the trenches: "The defense is ahead, but that's not unusual. We're going to stay committed to being physical on both sides of the ball and the running game."

On the offensive line: "We've got to improve on our front play and believe that we can run the ball. Certainly they're a big part of that. We want to keep moving in that direction."

On team health: "We were able to stay pretty healthy today."

On recent attrition: "Will Conwell has left the team. He left the day before spring ball started. He didn't love football. He's in school and he's going to try and throw the discuss and shot for the track team. Matt Lingley has left the team. He left yesterday. He's going to try to transfer to a place where he'll get a chance to play more."

His feelings after day three: "I'm as excited as I was (before). We're not a finished product, we're far from that. We're going to keep working until we feel great about ourselves."
