Oklahoma Player Quotes

Sophomore Quarterback Sam Bradford

On the offensive’s performance...

“I think the first half was the best we have played all season. Everything seemed to go as we drew it up. It was a great first half.”

 

On having a balanced offense...

“I thought our running backs really ran hard for a long time. Today I thought they ran very well and our offensive line played great today, as there were some huge holes for our running backs to run through. Balance is something that we have talked about and I felt today that we were very balanced. If all that happens, I feel we are a hard offense to stop.”

 

On second half performance...

“We played very well in the first half and got in a great rhythm. It is frustrating on how we came out and played in the second half. But any time you can go on the road and get a win, you have to be happy.”

 

Senior Wide Receiver Juaquin Iglesias

On start of the game...

“It was great, I was glad that we put up that many points but we only scored three in the second half. We try to score every time we have the ball. We don’t look at the scoreboard, we just try to score every time we touch the ball.”

 

On second half...

“I think we came out a little lazy. We need to fix that because we can get beat later down the season if we play like that. We put up a lot of points and won the game but we still need to get better.”

 

Junior Defensive End Austin English

On the defensive performance...

“It’s very disappointing to come out here and give up all those passing yards. It’s something we take to heart as a defensive line. We need to get to the quarterback faster and help out the guys in the secondary.”

 

On getting a marquee performance...

“It’s something we can’t lose sight of. You have to take the good with the good and the bad with the bad. We need to realize we have a lot to improve on and try to get this redirected.”

 

On allowing on defensive miscues...

“I’d say consistency is a problem.  We are too up and down. We’ll play well here and there but then give up a big play. Sometimes we’ll miss a tackle and not get the guy down and those things hurt your defense.”

 

Senior Guard Duke Robinson

On offensive balance...

“Things go really smooth when we have balance. We get the running backs going down field and they can make plays for us. And then we can come right back with passes over the top. I think it’s been working really, really well (balance). “

 

On the first half...

“At first it kind of gets to you, then you have to sit down and think about what you’re doing and what you’re doing wrong and how we scored those first 28 points. We sat down and we got everything back smoking. We just kept on rocking and rolling. I think we could have scored more than we did, but I’m satisfied with what we did, coming on the road and getting a big win like this.”
