Oklahoma State Player Quotes

Junior Defensive End Nathan Peterson

On Josh Freeman’s touchdown scramble...

“We couldn’t stop them, and he made a great run. They had good downfield blocks during the play. (Freeman) showed he learned a lot and showed he’s the real deal.”

 

Sophomore Quarterback Bobby Reid

On the dropped pass at the goal line...

“I’ve got to tip my hat to the safety. He made a good play. I thought (Adarius Bowman) had it. I thought he caught it for a touchdown and it was over. This is football you have to play at the end.”

 

On the game...

“We were playing so good and practicing hard for two weeks coming into the game. You get knocked down in a game like this, but you have to keep working hard. I don’t think we lost the game. I think that Kansas State won the game. They outplayed us. We didn’t lay down and they didn’t lay down. They won it in the end.”

 

Junior Defensive End Marque Fountain

On if Oklahoma State gave the game away...

“I think we gave it to them. All game we didn’t play on top of our game. There were some plays we could have capitalized on and the plays they had to take advantage of they did. K-State is a good team and you can’t go out and play two quarters and expect to win in the Big 12. You have to go out and play four quarters.”

 

On the difference between the first and second halves...

“Our offense did a good job and our defense did a good job, but their defense did better than ours. We let them have a few good plays and that’s what hurt us today.”

 

On the play of Josh Freeman...

“For any quarterback, when you complete passes it always raises your confidence. Especially with those two or three big plays we gave up to them. Those were a big boost to the quarterback.”

 

Redshirt Freshman Safety Andre Sexton

On moving on to next week...

“We just have to leave it in the past. Now, we just have to go work on it and focus on Kansas. We just have to go out there and work hard on the practice field. That’s all we can do. We just have to let it go, because if we just would have focused on special teams, we would have won.”

 

On special teams...

“The blocked punt hurt us, because most teams don’t come back to win after they get a punt blocked. Even though we were up most of the second half, both the blocked punt and the kick return hurt us. It’s the little things we have to focus on the most.”

 

Sophomore Tight End Brandon Pettigrew

On the success of OSU’s offense...

“We looked pretty good this game. Unfortunately, we didn’t come up with the win. We’ve got to keep working hard.”

 

On the team’s emotions after the loss...

“It hurts, but we’ve got to look forward. We have other things to do. We have to win.”

 

Junior Wide Receiver Adarius Bowman

On the dropped pass at the goal line...

“I didn’t see much because I was focusing on the ball. I should have had it. I don’t remember much. I caught it, got hit, and then didn’t have the ball.”
