Kansas State Player Quotes

Sophomore Quarterback Josh Freeman

On his interceptions...

“The things that I did when I threw the interception were easily correctable mistakes. It was uncharacteristic for the things that I normally do. I don’t know if I was feeling too comfortable tonight or what. It should have never happened tonight and shouldn’t happen in the future.”

 

Senior Wide Receiver Jordy Nelson
On moving into the top-10 on career receptions...
“It was something that I didn’t know about until it happened. I’m more concerned about our team winning.”

 

On the penalties...

“Everyone can see that the penalties are holding us back as a team. At some point we have to step up and make plays. We need to take control and do the right thing.”

 

On the passing game...

“We have great receivers this season, but we have to give credit to the offensive line because you need that protection to throw the ball as well as Josh (Freeman) for putting the ball in the right spot.”

 

Junior Wide Receiver Deon Murphy

On how it felt to get his first touchdown at K-State...
“It feels great, but I’m real humble.  I feel like I can do that all the time, but the San Jose State defense and secondary played a real good game too.”

 

On what Coach Prince said to him after his touchdown...

“He said that’s what he brought me here for. He just said relax and play. That’s what I did I had a couple of things to work on, along with the whole offense and defense. But we’re going to come here as a team and win as a team. I give it all to San Jose State. They played a real good game.”   

 

Junior Linebacker Ian Campbell
On the defensive performance...
“I’d give us a B+ for effort, the guys were trying really hard out there.  As far as tackling I wouldn’t give it a very high grade, but I felt like our coaches prepared us well.”

 

Senior Defensive End Rob Jackson
On missing out on sacks...
“We just need to tackle. I missed a sack myself. A lot of us had him and just let him go.”
