You can't play that level of play. For a national championship, you can't come out like that. We'll get run out of the stadium.

Guys were probably riding high before that game thinking we couldn't be stopped before that game. That was a slap in the face. Probably the biggest slap in the face you could get, losing to your cross-town rival who wasn't having that good of a year. It definitely woke us up.

We can't even think about being in first place, because you saw Washington lost two games last weekend. One game and we're tied. You got to bring it every night, you can't concede any game or just assume that we're going to win it.

They're going to be scrappy, they're going to be playing hard. They're not going to concede anything.

The Pac-10 is wide open. If we lose two games on this trip, we'll go from first to sixth in a hurry. We can't let that happen.

He's a tough, physical player, and that's how we play in practice and that's how it's translated over to the game. I'd take a few more injuries if he's going to bring that intensity in the game.

It's tough not to think about what could have been. It was the most difficult decision of my life. Those were pretty much my dream school and my dream coach. I couldn't have both.

I'm not looking at it (like I have to earn the starting job). It's more about bringing energy and doing whatever the team needs. You lead by example.

Just getting back was a big step for our program. This year, we definitely want to build on that. I'm looking forward to going as far as we can.
