On the hit he took from Bowling Green cornerback Antonio Smith at the end of a 13-yards run. Stocco missed three plays but returned to throw a touchdown pass to open the second quarter.
"He gave me a little kiss… Shot to my head. I'm all right though."
Coach says you've got to learn how to slide a little bit
"Yeah, I probably should have slid on that one."
Were you dazed at all sitting over on the bench?
"A little bit. But after a little bit I think I was all right."
How much easier is your day made when you have a guy do what Brian (Calhoun) did?
"Oh, a lot easier. I don't even know how many pass attempts I had. It had to be under eight or something like that. It's just an unbelievable job by the O line and Brian Calhoun and Booker Stanley and Bernie (Matt Bernstein), all those guys. Just unbelievable effort by them."
We knew he'd create something for this offense… but did you expect, I mean, this was just unreal what he put up…
"Well yeah he just did an unbelievable job with everything. And also the O line. He couldn't have done it if those guys aren't blocking."
