Head Coach Scott Frost on finishing games
“We just need to win. That’s it. You can’t put any more on it. In some ways, winning is a habit, and losing is a habit. I think there’s a few too many guys on our team who are conditioned to not win. We need to flip that and make sure winning is a habit. To do that, you have to get one, and it’s been too many weeks since we’ve gotten one.”
On True Freshman Ty Robinson
“There are bright spots there with the way some of our guys have been playing. Several of them have gotten opportunities to get in and get their feet wet in college football, and I think they did a really good job. Ty Robinson stands out from Saturday. He held his own out there.”
Adrian Martinez on all of the attention he receives online
“Me being honest, when I first got here, I loved social media, and then kind of over the course of time, I don’t even have Twitter on my phone anymore. That’s just kind of the way it’s been, and it’s been my way of handling it. That’s just how it goes. Especially during the season, you want to try and tune out as much as you can and just focus on the guys inside the stadium.”
Defensive Coordinator Erik Chinander on the defense beating themselves
“The thing that you have to keep emphasizing to these guys is we are beating ourselves right now. It’s not them, it’s not me. It’s we. We are beating ourselves.”Everybody needs to execute. Or that guy gets a crack this big and she’s over.”
