Kansas State Player Quotes

Sophomore Outside Linebacker Eric Childs
On losing Antwon Moore...
“I feel that’s a big loss, not only for my position but to the team. But we’re just going to bring down some people and figure out who we can fill in and just try to get back on our feet.”

On who might fill in for Moore...
“It could be anybody. We might pull some people down. We might pull some people from other positions. I don’t know really.”

On how Chris Patterson is doing...
“He’s good. I feel he’s come a long way from spring. Other than that, I’m just trying to teach him the ropes and get him into D-1 football.”

Junior Inside Linebacker Reggie Walker
On Coach Prince’s message before this game...
“His message is like every game is hard to win. He said it’s easy to lose. That’s basically what he said the whole time about any game. It’s going to be hard to win.”

On Missouri State’s offense...
“Well I just watched a little bit of the tape, and they have a spread offense. I can’t even remember what our game plan is right now, because we usually go over it tomorrow. The 3-4 is really good against a spread offense. You can switch the outside linebackers and put in speedier guys there. There’s some different things you can do with it

Senior Wide Receiver Jordy Nelson
On if the team takes Missouri State seriously...
“I think we do. You better this year after what Appalachian State did to Michigan and stuff like that. You can’t take a team lightly anymore. They’re going to come in here and they have nothing to lose. They’re probably going to leave it all on the field and let it loose. They’re going to do their best, and we have to prepare and do our best. If anything, you just have to go out there, prepare, play your game, and try to improve on your skills. If it does turn out to be a blowout, which I have no idea since we haven’t starting watching Missouri State yet, but it just gives you time to work on your fundamentals.”
