ston is having an excellent year. It’s disappointing for us, and for him as well I’m sure. But in the end you just have to keep moving on. Frank Alexander, the only thing that gives you a great feeling, he has been recognized as one of our players of the game or a guy who really had a positive impact on the game. Last week as well, a sack, two or three batted balls, a couple of pressures and some tackles for loss. So Frank will just have to step it up, and then the other guys in there have to come one and help as well.”

On turnover margin:

“It’s critical. We always talk about and emphasize being careful with the football, and protecting it. Whether you are on the road or at home it’s a big deal, and hopefully we can continue to do it.”

On the creation of turnovers:

“You know how it is. Some games you are going to get more than others. I think we either lead the league or are within one of the league lead in turnovers forced. I would say that we have done a fair job of it through nine games. We aren’t doing anything different, other than sometimes we are playing a little bit better or they aren’t.”

On Texas A&M’s offense with coach Mike Sherman:

“It is different from what they are doing a year ago. They mix their run and pass well with a lot of intermediate and control passing.”

On if the 2000 game at Texas A&M, like the 2000 Nebraska game, is among his favorite memories:

"It's probably right with it. That's when Torrance Marshall intercepts the ball and returns it for a touchdown and you're away from home in that environment and they can smell blood, that's when I made the comment, I said, 'Boys, we can't lose. It's just not going to happen.' That's where that feeling, from then on, the rest of the year, it was that way, that no matter what, we're going to figure out a way to win."
