Colorado Player Quotes

QB Bernard Jackson

ON OFFENSIVE PERFORMANCE...
“We just have to start fast and finish fast.  We started slow today, we practiced well all week.  I missed some plays all game, but mostly in the first half and I take the blame for that.

 

“It’s not like us to miss open guys like that.  You just don’t miss guys wide open like that and I missed them.  It came back to haunt us in the first half.  The second half we came back and we battled and we were making plays.”

 

ON DIFFERENCE BETWEEN HALVE...
“There wasn’t any difference, it all came down on me making plays.  I missed guys in the first half and in the second half we came out fired up and made some big plays.”


ON FIRST YEAR AS A QB...
“I’m still learning, this is my first year playing in games at CU, so I am still learning.  I just need to stay patient and to remember to play within the offense.  I get us in trouble we I try to do too much, I just need to continue to play within the offense.”

 

GENERAL...
“We started off slow and the second half we came out getting back, but we just need to start off fast and finish fast.  It hurt us in the first half.”

 

ON RUNNING GAME...
“We worked hard on the running game this week and we were successful running the ball and we just had that mindset.”

 

ON RED ZONE TROUBLE...
“It’s just the little things.  A guy may miss a block here or miss a block there.  Myself making a wrong read, so forth and so on.”

 

ON HIS TD RUN...
“It was an option read, the guy bit and I had daylight and took it to the house.”

 

TB Hugh Charles

ON DIFFERENCE BETWEEN HALVES...
“We didn’t say or change anything at the half.  Really, we just started making some big plays and that sparked the offense and inspired the guys to make some more plays.”

 

ON OFFENSIVE PERFORMANCE...
“We can’t always get away with just rushing the ball, we have to be able to throw the ball too.  We just need to find a rhythm on offense and it will work out.

 

ON BERNARD JACKSON’S TD RUN...
“Those are the kind of big plays that spark the team, offensively and defensively.  Plays like that give us confidence.”

 

ON THIRD QUARTER DRIVE THAT STALLED INSIDE THE KSU 10...
“That was deflating, I could hear people talking about it.  It does not spark anything, it keeps the team down.  We have to keep working hard and finish the season strong.”

 

TB Mel Holiday

ON LONG RUN...
“Yeah (it was a nice run), they told me I was out of bounds and I was a little mad about that, but Bernard (Jackson) finished for us.  Big plays spark the team, someone has to do that, I just wish it would have happened earlier.”

 

ON OFFENSE’S SECOND HALF SUCCESS...
“I wish we could have done that earlier, we would have had even more yards, more points and probably come away with a win.  If we could get the same energy offensively that our defense starts with we would be better off.”

 

ON FINISHING THE SEASON STRONG...
“Oh yeah, we will still be fighting, working and keep improving.  We will come out strong next week and hopefully come out with a win.”
