More quotes from the UW-Oregon game

A hodgepodge of quotes from today’s game:
On what the game says about the Huskies: “That we are not going to give up. It doesn’t matter what rank you are you are still in this, no reason to be scared, rear no one.”
On the atitude heading into the game: “No one believes in us but us. It’s better to play like that, because we have no expectations but we know what we can do and we don’t have to live up to anything. We know what we can do but we don’t have to prove nothing to nobody because nobody expects us to do anything.”
On Keith Price: “Keith for his first game he actually handled it very well. He wasn’t nervous at all, he was actually the one who was the most smiling, cracking jokes in the huddle, he was all smiles. So we all moraled around him. He brought our energy up.”
On the chances of getting to a bowl game: “We’re always confident because if you don’t believe in yourself then you are in the wrong sport and you don’t need to be playing it anyway. So we are still confident. We just have to take this bye week to get right and see what we need to improve on and come out strong for the last three games.”

On the feeling on the sidelines when UW was hanging in: “We were electric because we were stopping them, making plays, moving the ball, because everyone expected them to have 70 on us. So we were really into it.”
On the running game: “We just go out there and just take what the defense gives us. We saw on film they really gave holes in the run game so we tried to run it, as we kept running it to open up the pass.”
On the feeling afterward: “A loss is a loss, still hurts. But even though we didn’t win I guarantee they still respect us.”
Thoughts on the game: “I just felt our defense played a great game, our offense just didn’t help them out. We kept going three and out and it’s not always good when your defense is always out on the field. Eventually they are going to get tired. We found a rhythm but the third downs just killed us.”
On Price: “I think Keith did a great job out there. We’ve just got to help him out more. The plays were there and he made good throws. We’ve just go to make those plays.”
On the drops: “We just lost our focus, we’ve just got to help Keith out with those plays right there.”
On the offense: “It definitely hurt us, especially on those third downs. You always want to keep consistent drives and keep the defense off the field and we didn’t do that and that hurt us.”
On the team trying harder this week: “I think we competed and battled real well. Our defense came out on fired and we were moving the ball on offense and just simple mistakes, we shot ourselves in the foot.”
On if they can now win three in a row: “I think so. We’ve still got three games left and we’ve got the 24 hour rule and we are just going to fix our mistakes during the bye week and get better and move forward.”
On the first play when Kearse broke open but the pass was deflected: “I didn’t know he was that close or he caught up that fast. I thought it was going to be a nice shot. Keith got hit on that play so I thought it was going to come right into my arms. He made a good play.”
On mindset at halftime: “We were still in the game to do this. We came out in the first couple plays with a bang, but I guess the outcome was different. I think they were fast paced and it was too much for us. Too many people got too excited. We kind of ran out of gas.”
On finishing the season: “The last 3 games we need to stay focused and keep pushing ourselves. Today we stuck together, the sidelines were crazy, and we pushed each other. We just need to stay together and be a unit.”
On the atmosphere of Autzen: “It was not as bad as my freshman year. We have practiced with loud speakers this week so we paid no attention to the crowd. We need to keep holding on to each other. We are a team today and a team for the rest of the year.”
On the touchdown pass: “I knew we had a chance. Coach called the right play. We just kept playing and fighting. We really had nothing to lose. They had more pressure than we did.”
On the game: “I just love the game and I am having fun. I just had a great time and I am looking forward to the future. I am preparing as if I am going to play.”
On the game: “You have to give (Steve Sarkisian) Sark a lot of credit, they came out hard, but we wore them down. You have to play a full 60 minute game. We knew going in that it’d be a big game, Sark does a great job. … We preach playing the whole game. You don’t get a trophy at halftime. You don’t get a trophy after the third quarter.”
At halftime: “I was excited to see how we could come out and play with the position we were in.”
On Special Teams: “Josh (Huff) and Cliff (Harris) did some nice things, we’re a full team. They were big and they did a nice job.”
On Darron Thomas: “He missed a couple, but that’s the thing about Darron (Thomas), he bounces right back. He gets better every game. I’m really happy where he is at right now. He’s one of the great quarterbacks in this league and no one really talks about him.”
On Keith Price: “I was impressed, he’s an athletic kid. For his first start, coming into here, I was real impressed with the kid.”
On holding Washington to 2-16 on third down: “2-16 on third down, that’s the money down, that’s a pretty good stat.”
On the injury to Nate Costa: “I don’t know what happened. I can’t fret about something when I don’t know what happened.”
On the Game: “That was interesting. We pulled it together and came out with a win. Hats off to UW. They came to play today We kept chopping away. The tree eventually came down it just took a little longer than usual. We score a lot of points. That’s what we’re out there to do. It was a sloppy game.”
On if there was any trash talking: “I actually didn’t experience a whole lot of talking. They were pretty good dudes.”
On if this is still a rivalry: “Yes. It’s a Pacific Northwest thing. They want to run the North; we want to run the North. We came out on top today.”
On UW stopping the run: “They did a great job stopping the run in the first quarter and the second quarter. They did a good job of not missing tackles.”
On the game: “We really weren’t playing up to our standards. You’re going to have that adversity when you’re playing football. This was a really sloppy game. We had so many penalties.”
Can you be disappointed with a 37 point win?: “No, I wouldn’t be disappointed if we won by one. A win is a win.”
