Why did it come together today after the last three years, and what was the mindset of your seniors?
I think it is really amazing to see what Greg Robinson and those other three defensive coaches have done to tie this together, to put in the run-stopping defense they put in today. We didn't blitz a whole lot, but the guys still put pressure on (Blake) Bell and it is just amazing to see after the change after Brigham Young what this has become.
What feelings were going through your head after the game?
I like winning football games — that's my job. When you win one, you are supposed to and that is it. You put all your time and energy into one and when you win it, it's really fun and I like seeing these guys be happy. When you lose it, it's devastating because you put the same amount of time in it and the same amount of energy into it and it kills you.
