Griffin quoteboard

Quoteboard on Baylor QB Robert Griffin

Defensive tackle Gerald McCoy:
“I saw him play against Wake Forest, he’s a scrambler, he’s going to take off running. We’ve preparing to contain him like Jake Locker. We’ll have similar preparation to Jake Locker to deal with this QB. The whole offense runs through this guy. If he doesn’t feel comfortable with something, he’s going to take off and run. From what I’ve seen, he’s pretty good. We’re going to have to work to contain him. We’re going to have spies for him, try and get him out of his comfort zone, put pressure on him.”

Linebacker Keenan Clayton:
“We’ll have to get after him. Think about it. He stepped on campus and is a Big 12 400-meter champion. And he’s supposed to be a high school senior. I mean, that says a lot. I’ve seen a lot of people who think they’re real fast get embarrassed on the track. He has a strong arm, he can run. Coach Venables every week will have something for us to get the job done. We just have to execute the defense. Get him stopped. If we contain him and slow him down where he can’t stretch the field, we’ll be in good shape.”

DB coach Bobby Jack Wright:
“Obviously he’s an exciting guy to watch, especially when you consider he’s a freshman. He might be the fastest guy in college football.”
