This lawsuit is obviously calculated to damage the reputations of some of the finest people I know. That they would shop this story to the media and file suit on the morning of our first football game tells you what their true motives are. The charges leveled against me and my staff are completely false.

He's lost about 25 pounds from last year, so he's made it past nose guards and now he's being confused with linebackers. He's so well put together.

He's probably as celebrated a player that's ever been here in any sport. It's been neat so far that he's been able to play the last two (seasons) because we only had him half a season the first two. You can look at his stats, and see he's one of the better quarterbacks in the country, and he has been the past two seasons.

We lost the game in the first half I thought. We didn't have the poise and the confidence in the first half we had in the second half.

I've got a bunch of winners in that locker room and it's my responsibility to teach them how to win games. The effort is there and we didn't give up.

I think our kids are confident. They look forward to playing and they think they can win. That's not cocky at all. We're not predicting victory by any means, but I think we'll be confident. This will be the best team we play all year long by far, so we'll know our strengths and weaknesses.

I'm excited to see two of the best players in Conference USA history lining up against each other for the last time. They've gotten to know each other, and that's an extra piece of this. They get to line up against each other for the last time on national television.

I'm so proud of him. I just want to see him finish strong. He lost about 20 pounds in the summer, and that was with a bad leg. He just ran, watched what he ate. He took it as a challenge and made it work.

We were up 21 points with five minutes to go -- and then it got a little close.
