I didn't think it would really have much of an effect on me until I walked out on the field and saw the guys. You know when you hear an old song, it kind of takes you back to a certain time and moment? Well, that's kind of what the uniforms did. It was neat to do.

Leonard can make big plays; he's already shown that ... The biggest thing about this team is they have talent and experience on offense.These guys are all seniors and most of them have played for two or three years.

We came up here and our guys wanted to win this game so bad and we played so hard. We prepared so hard during the week, and it just hurts. It really does.

We still have a lot of work to do. It was real obvious there were a lot of plays out there that we kind of left on the field, particularly on offense.

We expected to win this game, ... but it was still good to put it on the record.

I told both of them Saturday morning that David has been here, he's kicked and he deserves the first opportunity.

Do I like the excitement? Sure. It's getting our football team to catch up with the excitement, and that's tough to do.

I think it was just a throwback weekend. We're back to our originals. But it was neat that the guys did appreciate it.

People were fired up. And we had some recruits at (Saturday's) game, and they were fired up.
