Coach Alford Post-Game Quotes
UNM vs. Detroit 11/13/10
"Openers are always tough; you always have a lot of questions with openers, and I though our guys did good, other than the last eight minutes it was a solid effort. Towards the end you start to get tired, and we got complacent because we were up by twenty. But the guys followed the game plan, you have a young group, I think we have eight guys in the locker room who had never played our game plan and I think they executed it well."
"They really gave us an effort on the defensive end, but we need to keep growing on the intelligence standpoint. But once we do that I'm very excited for that."
How does your first game in the pit feel?
Kirk- "It felt good, just to get one more step, more experience. It's a pretty big game."
Were you expecting it to be as physical as it was out there today?
Gary- "Yeah, that is how coach wants me to play. It really gets the team going."
UNM used most of their players tonight, do you think that is how it is going to be this year?
Gary- "I think so, we have a deep bench. They raise up the energy."
What did you think of the level of intensity?
Kirk- "We just got to bring it every time, bring the intensity to every game."
