Kansas State Head Coach Bill Snyder Quotes

Opening Statement...
"Without me elaborating, you can see what concerns I have, and there are a lot of them. I was proud of how well we played defensively tonight. I think that UMass has been an awfully good running football team. I know we held them to 30 yards in the first half, but I don't know what we had collectively, I haven't looked at a sheet of paper yet. But I thought we played well. We were fortunate on defense. They dropped an awful lot of passes. So there are some issues that we have to clean up there as well, but, overall, collectively I was pleased. Obviously our kicking game was not what it needed to be. We gave up seven points in the kicking game. Offensively I thought that in the second quarter of the ballgame, we began to put things together, and proved that maybe we have a little bit of a capacity for movement of the football; ran the ball reasonably well, in the second quarter of the ballgame.  Then it all fell apart in the second half and we were a bad, bad, offensive football team in the second half. It's no more complex than that. I think as I said, that the University of Massachusetts is a very fine football team. They have some very, very fine players. They've got some skilled wide receivers. I think it could have been a different ball game, much quicker, had they not put some balls on the ground. But I do know that they have some talent there. They are a well coached football team, but that doesn't help us."
