UW quarterback Keith Price held his usual Monday meeting media today to talk about Saturday’s loss at Stanford and the game this week against Arizona.
Among other things, Price said he is confident the Huskies will bounce back from the blowout in the Bay Area though he admitted the defeat was difficult to swallow.
“It’s definitely tough,” he said. “You get embarrassed like that. … It defintely surprised us. I wasn’t expetcing to lose like that and anytime you go in expecting to win and the results are that far off, it’s tough.”
Price said a review of the film was frustrating because he felt that the offense “left a lot of plays (on the field).” He took the blame for that, saying “I’ve just got to make throws. Even if I’m under pressure I have to make those throws. Those are throws that I could make that I didn’t make.”
He also acknowledged, however, that it was tough trying to keep up with Stanford’s offensive onslaught.
“It’s rough because you are trying to help eveyrone and keep everyone up, but then at the end (you see) the score, it’s like ‘there is no way to win the game.’ It’s hard to keep your motor going.”
And he said of the all the hits he took that “it’s not going to get (him) any happy feet or anything. I’m still going to stay in the pocket and I’m going to still throw the ball.”
You can see that and more in this video of Price’s session with the media:
