He makes it look so easy, like everything is in slow motion. It just seemed like another workman day for him.

At times we didn't even play that good. But we played hard, and we played with confidence.

Everybody's got scholarships and everybody's got good players. If it's a night where it's not working well, you better hang on and you better make some plays.

His comment was, 'If there's going to be a poll, you'd like to be as high in it as possible because if there's going to be a beauty contest, you'd like to win,' ... One of the goals we had eight years ago was to make sure Texas is placed back in the elite of college football, and obviously this season we will be.

Last year's team had some of this. This year's team hasn't had this yet. They anticipated it at Ohio State, but this was a great learning experience for us and one that will help us the rest of the way.

When you become No. 1 and everybody talks about how much you're going to kill the other team and they've done nothing but lose and you're on the road, it's at night and it's cold, it's a trap game.

It will come down to who will be the toughest the longest.

They had nothing to lose.

If you cannot have your best game out there and still score 52 points, that just shows you this team has a chance to be really special.
