Kansas State Head Coach Bill Snyder
On earning a road win in Morgantown...
"I was certainly pleased with it. I was pleased with the way our youngsters approached the ball game and how they traveled and kept their focus. We played well. We made mistakes and need to get better, but collectively, I think we did a nice job."

On how the Kansas State defense slowed the WVU offense down...
"They just kept playing. We didn’t do anything out of the ordinary. It has been a matter of week in and week out, just trying to improve day in and day out, and I think our defense did that. We played well and we played aggressively. We pursued the ball. We had a relentless pass rush, so to speak. We got our hands on Geno (Smith), who by the way, regardless of score, is a talented quarterback."

On the senior’s ability to lead the team by example...
"They certainly do, and we have a number of young guys that also present leadership to our program.  They keep the game where it needs to be, and our young guys recognize and realize that."

On the teams meeting at midfield pregame...
"We bring our team out to the middle of the field, and they happen to do the same thing. I’m sure there were a few things said there, but that was as far as it went. The coaches got in there, and there wasn’t a riot that broke out. You don’t like those things to happen. We don’t want bad attention."

West Virginia Head Coach Dana Holgorsen
On the game...
"We lost to a very good football team tonight. You have to give Kansas State a lot of credit. They were mistake-free on all sides of the ball. There are no excuses, and it starts with me. We will fix what the problems are, and we’ll keep plugging along to try and get better."

On the offense struggling...
"We couldn’t get in a rhythm. I think we ran probably 14 plays in the first half and only had the ball three times. So, it’s hard to get in a rhythm when you do that. There’s no excuse though for when we have the ball three times and don’t move the ball."

On Kansas State’s Collin Klein...
"He doesn’t do anything wrong. He doesn’t make mistakes. He is the same guy we saw on film. He is exactly the same guy we thought he would be. He’s hard to tackle, he gets in good plays and doesn’t turn the ball over. You can say what you want about his throwing motion, but it goes exactly where he wants it to go. He is a good football player."

On making wholesale changes midyear from allowing so many points...
"What do you want me to change? We played somewhere in the neighborhood of probably 30 players on defense. They are what we got. We’re going to focus hard on them, especially with all the young guys we have. I looked out there on several different occasions and saw eight or nine freshmen out there. Those guys will get better, and we’ll keep coaching them hard."

On Geno Smith pressing with the offense today...
"He was, and we all were. We talked about it all week. ‘Don’t get impatient. Don’t get impatient.’ You have the ball a couple of times and you look up there and you’re down 17 points. You start pressing. It’s inevitable. We were trying to score 14 points in one play. That is just not very good offensive football. You can’t have that mindset."
