Louisville Player Quotes

Sophomore Quarterback Hunter Cantwell

On the Louisville win...

“I feel good about getting the win in a tough stadium like this, on the road, against a team like Kansas State, against a pretty good defense. We made some mistakes and we’ve got to get some things adjusted this week and get better.”

 

On the K-State defense...

“They totally mixed up what they were doing on the defensive side of the ball and I didn’t recognize it as quick as I would have liked to. The (Louisville) coaches were great when we got back on the sidelines, saw some things, came back out in the second half and got it rolling a little bit better.”

 

Senior Linebacker Nate Harris

On the Louisville defense...

“We just came out today and finished the whole game. It was a great week of preparation. Everyone was talking about a let down we knew we weren’t going to come out here and let down, after a big win against Miami. Coming into this hostile environment against Kansas State they’re a good team we just came out here and executed our plays.”

 

On guarding against a let down...

“I just have great confidence in my team. We have great confidence in each other, we knew how much hard work we put in to prepare for this whole game and this whole season. We didn’t want to come out here and let down ourselves, our fans and our school.”   

 

On the defense picking up the offense...

“Everybody knows about our offense being number one in the nation so (the defense) likes coming out as the underdog - nobody shows us respect. We just come out and play the way we know how to play and show everybody that we can play defense too.”

 

Junior Wide Receiver Harry Douglas

On the Louisville defense and rebounding from turnovers...

“The defense ended up playing really good. They’ve been playing really well all this year actually, and I’m thankful for that. The defense helps to motivate our whole team. Basically, we just try to get each other pumped up, and let each other know that our defense is there to back us up if we have a mistake here or there.”

 

On the K-State defense...

“They played a lot of cover two and there was no way they should have been able to stop the run so we ran the ball good today. (The K-State defense) was alright, we just didn’t execute on offense. The plays were there to make, we just didn’t execute.”

 

Senior Defensive End Zach Anderson

On the K-State passing attack...

“They probably watched film and saw that we stopped the run, so they were going to try to throw the ball, but we also put good pressure on the quarterback. We tried to shut down the run and stop them with the pressure.”
