Oklahoma State football: What players, coaches were saying after the loss

by Scott Wright Published: November 24, 2012

Defensive coordinator Bill Young on the emotions of the game:

“It was a heart-wrencher, or a gut-wrencher, or however you want to say it. When you lose a game like this in overtime — awful is about the only word that comes to mind.”

Young on the status of the OSU program:

“Well, the program is really on the rise, no question about it. We stumped our toe today. OU was picked to win it all. Some people picked them to win the national championship. Right now, they have the caliber of players to be in that category. I think our program's in great shape. We were in position to be — depending what happens next week with Kansas State and Texas, we were in position to be co-champions.”

Defensive tackle Nigel Nicholas on needing a stop on the final drive:

“I felt we were going to go out there and get a stop. I just have confidence in our team, but OU did a great job of fighting the whole game and we just didn't get it done. Got to come back and practice and work hard tomorrow.

Running back Joseph Randle on the emotional swings of the game:

“Our job is to go out and score points, regardless of what happens when we're not on the field. We've got to be ready to score every time we get the ball, and we didn't do that, so therefore, I guess we didn't do our job.”
