HEAD COACH Mike Locksley: - "I thought we would come out and play a little better, especially offensively. We had a couple of third-and-shorts early in the that we didn't convert. we put our defense in some tough situations early on. We can get this corrected. There wasn't much out there we can't correct. You usually make your biggest strides from game one to game two. I thought we played all four quarters. I don't think the score is indicative of the type of team we have. Give credit to A&M. Those guys wore us down a little bit. We have to go watch tape and get some things corrected."

SENIOR QUARTERBACK Donovan Porterie: - "I think early on we made a few mistakes but these things can be corrcted by watching film. We did a lot of good things but we didn't capitalize on others. It was a learning experience. Give credit to a good team (A&M). I think if we would have come out and performed on all cylinders, it would have been different. Our scheme was to get it to the open guy depending on what coverage A&M was in."

SENIOR OFFENSIVE LINEMAN Erik Cook: - "Texas A&M is a good team. We came out here expecting to play a good Big 12 team and that's what we got. We threw the ball and some things went right and some things went wrong. We're past A&M and now we're looking forward to Tulsa."

SENIOR SAFETY Frankie Solomon: "We didn't execute as well as we would have liked on defense. They were more prepared. We've got some stuff we've got correct. We had a lot of missed tackles and some balls we could have knocked down. We're going to have to get more in sync. All credit to A&M; they were more prepared. The team that was better prepared won tonight."
