Kansas State Player Quotes

Senior Linebacker Ian Campbell

On the team’s performance lately...

“Well, I know there are a lot of guys on the team that have a lot of fire. I know that. I know these guys. This is what we do. This is our job. I’m not happy necessarily with myself and how we are playing right now. I’m disappointed, and frustrated. I want myself and the guys to play better than we have been. There’s nothing really else to say, other than what I’ve said before.”

 

On putting together a win at Fresno State...

“If we want any type of post season at all, we’ll be able to pull ourselves together and play as aggressive and fast as we can, and be able to go out to California and get a good win, so we can have a possibility at a bowl berth.”

 

Senior Wide Receiver Jordy Nelson

On the offense...

“Offensively, I feel we ran the ball well, which is what we really wanted to do coming into this game. But, we just had too many mistakes and we’re able to capitalize when we got close to the goal line.”

 

On the running game...

“Their defense started making plays. Our guys were doing their job and making blocks. They were playing a Cover 2 defense, which leaves one less man in the box. Most teams want to run the ball more in that situation.”

 

On playing his last game at home...

“It means a lot to me. It’s great being out there and playing. It’s something that I will always remember and be able to reflect on later down the road. It has been fun, but we have another game next week and we need to win it.”

 

Senior Defensive Tackle Steven Cline

On playing on Senior Day...

“It was my last chance to play in this stadium and it really meant a lot to me that the coaches and everybody let me go out there and play today.”

 

On the defense...

“We lost today and I feel like that whenever you lose there’s something that you do wrong. I commend Missouri for the way they played today. They are going to be a national championship contender. They are a good team and we just didn’t play very well today.”

 

Senior Running Back James Johnson

On not getting as many touches in the second half...

“I’m not disappointed. The coaches, they have a job to do, and they felt like we needed to throw the ball. I’m not mad.”

 

Sophomore Free Safety Chris Carney

On today’s game...

“We just need to go out and finish games. We had a great week of practice and we obviously played with them (Missouri) in the first half, so if we can learn to finish we will be okay.”

 

Freshman Defensive Tackle Xzavier Stewart

On the recent losses...

“It’s heartbreaking but we need to be able to pick each other up as teammates and friends, and hopefully then we will be able to go out there and play physical like we need to.”
