If we don't pull three out of the four points this weekend, we're not going to catch them. It's going to be impossible. They're up five (points) on us right now. They'll be up nine if they sweep. I'm not even thinking about that.

This slate is not going to be the new broom to sweep clean. There's no indication that Boehner and Blunt have ever bucked this way of looking at things or doing business. They have been part of the K Street clique.

For us to get a sweep heading into exams is obviously a good thing. I thought our guys did a good job of playing hard all weekend, despite the weather related issues. I am glad that we were able to finish off the sweep to head into the week.

I make no secret of the fact that I would rather lie on a sofa than sweep beneath it. But you have to be efficient if you're going to be lazy.

Shirley Conran

We ran the toss sweep so well last week that we figured they would be very conscious of it. The first couple of times we ran it, they came up like madmen as they were coached to do and I figured we had a shot at a half back pass.
