Notre Dame had the ball almost the entire third quarter. Did it make it difficult to keep momentum going?
No. I don't think so, but I think it was just one of those deals that Notre Dame flat out beat us. You can't really beat around the bush with that kind of thing when you play a game like that. They just flat out beat us.
What do you think going forward? Are you much better than a year ago?
Oh my gosh. Absolutely. Night and day. We're so much better from what we were at the start of the season. Yeah, we hit a bump in the road ... maybe the national championship's not in the picture any more. That one's probably gone but we still have Big 12 and the bowl game. Just see mow much character we have and how much glory to give to God that we get to come and play the game of football and just have fun out there. Sure we wanted things to go a little different tonight but that's the way it worked out.
