Three questions: Dominique Franks, OU defensive back

What happened on all those big plays?

They just played harder than we played. Like coach (Bob Stoops) said, we lacked discipline. We weren't reading our keys, and I was a main part of that. It was more of us not reading our keys. But at the same time you have to give them credit. They wanted it more than we did.

How surprised are you that West Virginia's offense could compile 525 total yards?

I'm very shocked. I didn't think we could get beat the way that we got beat. We got beat physically and mentally. It's very disappointing that we had this showing.

With a lot of returning starters, how difficult will it be to bounce back from another bowl loss?

We have to learn from this loss. We have a lot of guys coming back. We have to keep this in our hearts to motivate us in the offseason, this spring, all the way through summer workouts. We don't want this to happen again.
