POST GAME QUOTES - Hawai'i vs. Colorado State (Oct. 26, 2013)
CSU Head Coach Jim McElwain
On getting the win...
It was a heck of a win tonight for the team. Playing in Hawai`i is always tough especially with the travel and we knew we'd be facing a team that played to the end. We would have loved to have had a few of those plays back tonight but it's all about learning from your experiences. In the past we may not have been able to withstand their comeback but tonight we did.
On his team's fast start...
We really felt good about the start we had tonight. We scored on defense which always gives you an opportunity to win. Road wins are really hard to come by and sometimes you don't play well (in the second half), but at the end of the day it's about getting the win.
On UH's comeback effort...
We talked to our guys during the week that this is what they do, they're a last possession team. That's a credit to Norm (Chow) and the culture he's building where his teams just don't fall over. Their defense shut us down in the second half and they fought to the bitter end, and when you do things like that good things are going to happen for your program.
UH Head Coach Norm Chow
On tonight's game...
I thought all our kids played well, we just can't put ourselves in situations where we have to make something miraculous happen in the end. We have to stop doing that.
Thoughts on his players and looking ahead...
I love them and appreciate every effort that they give me, I told them to put this in the rear view mirror and we're going to fight.
On Colorado State...
That's a well coached team, they've got NFL guys on their staff. They do a nice job at scheming and when we play teams like that, you can't miss opportunities, they'll come back and get you and they got us tonight."
His motivation to keep fighting...
I got terrific kids, I got terrific, resilient young people who are very resilient.
On playing Schroeder and Graham...
I thought Sean was stuck in mud a little bit and I wanted to see Taylor play some. He hadn't played in a while and thought it may start a spark.
