Usually going into game four you know what your opponent is going to do. But we have really been off balanced as far of what game plan we can plan for.

We're developing personality. And quite frankly, I'm really proud of what these young men are doing right now.

They play passionate defense. They get off blocks faster than anyone we have played and I'm not saying that because they are our next opponent. They make very few mistakes defensively, and if there's a 50-yard pass, you'll see the defensive linemen running down the field.

We absolutely can't wait for conference. This is going to be a total focus week around here.

I told him he never instructed me on how to handle any hurricane contingency plans.

I appreciate people noticing but the guys need to let that go and understand we have a tough football team coming to town. Now we did lose. It was nice to go toe-to-toe with them, but that loss counts the same as any other loss on our schedule. We have got to move on. We have got to understand that there is a lot of season left and there's a lot of things that we want to accomplish this season.

Our job as coaches is to get them back down to earth. They have got to understand how important this South Dakota State game is to us.

Our guys have been working since December to get ready for those 11 opportunities (to play). We don't want to miss one. We're excited that we get to play A&M.

They are a quality football team.
