COLORADO STATE HEAD COACH Jim McElwain
(On the effort)
“At halftime I told these guys plain and simple it’s their opportunity to show us who they are, each individual, by how they play and compete. A year ago in this same game, at our place, we kind of threw our skirt up and let them run over us. I did see some young guys take that to heart.”
“I thought we had some guys that actually were out there not worried about the scoreboard, not worried about anything but their teammates and how they could do their job and those are things to build on.”
(On falling behind early)
“They absolutely came out and took it to us right off the bat. I felt we missed a couple things in the run game up front early and that’s disappointing.”
(On learning from Boise State)
“I think this could be a great lesson to take from a team like this, how they approach everything they do and the importance of it. I think there are some great lessons out there and that’s what we’ll teach from.”
(On a possible talent gap between the teams)
“I’m not down on our guys. We just have to play harder. Whether there is a separation in talent that doesn’t matter, there isn’t a separation in will and that’s what it’s all about.”
BOISE STATE HEAD COACH CHRIS PETERSEN
(On the importance of Senior Day)
“I think it’s really important to our program to send these seniors out (on a good note). I know it’s important to them, and I think the rest of the team really latches on to that and comes out with great energy.”
(On the offensive performance)
“I think when you can run the ball, things get a lot easier. Th ey were trying to stop the run - they were putting a lot of guys in there - but we were still fi nding some creases and Joe was really effi cient. I think the combination of those two things makes for a good off ense.”
(On Joe Southwick’s performance)
“I think Joe has been doing a good job. I think every week he has been getting steadily better. He sees things out there really, really well. Everybody just thinks about the pass game, but there’s a lot going on with the run game too, where he will get us in and out of plays. He can sniff out blitzes, and he sees those things. I just think he’s making strides.”
