Colorado Head Coach Dan Hawkins Quotes

On poor performance this week...
"We talked about this a lot every week. Games can come down to four or five plays you have to make. We had two turnovers, one on offense and one on special teams that hurt us a bunch. We really never got into any rhythm until the very last drive. K-State was good in special teams and it helps when we turn it over."

 On poor performance after big win last week...
"That's the nature of this conference, you have to get yourself up every week and getting going and not get caught up in the way you win or loss, which I don't think the guys did."

On not being able to establish the running game...
"We know they are a good team. We would love to be able to run the ball more. If we would have been able to get a few more good throws and done a few more things that way and it would have opened up the running game a little bit and that would have been able to help us."

On poor performance after first drive...
"We just weren't making a lot of plays. There was a combination of things that really ruined our continuity."
