UW’s Kasen Williams on the Sun Devils: ‘They beat us up, they wanted it more’

Washington linebacker Cory Littleton

On his emotions after the game: “We were more disappointed because we certainly didn’t play up to our potential tonight.”

Washington linebacker Princeton Fuimaono

On the missed tackles: “We just have to wrap up. We have to emphasize more this next week on tackling. We had a lot of missed tackles, very critical missed tackles. It was a factor. After every missed tackle they gained about five yards. We have got to stay on our feet.”

Washington safety Sean Parker

On the implications of the game: “It is a setback, but you have to get ready for the comeback. Its not over, we still have a couple more games left on the season. It is not the right time to hang our head, we have to pick our heads up and get ready for next week.”

On the lack of fire the team showed: “I don’t know what it is. We will fix when we get back to practice Sunday. We have got to have fire because that’s what helps us win the game.”

On whether the Oregon game took anything out of them: “No, it is a different team, different matchup. It is all about us not about the opponent.”

On the mood of the team: “We are disappointed. We can play better than that and we are better than that. We just have to concentrate on the little things and be come out with more energy.”

Washington cornerback Marcus Peters

On whether he was surprised by the way the game ended: “We have got to come to play. That is all I can say. We have to come to play better. We can’t let teams start that fast on us and jump out on us like that. We have to make some more plays on defense. We have got to cause some more turnovers.”

On the missed tackles: “We have got to go back to the drawing board. We need to do a little more tackling in practice and stay on it. Make sure we stay consistent with it. We had our chances, but we have to finish.”

On whether he was surprised by ASU’s Taylor Kelly’s running ability: “No we watched him in film and he had a couple plays where he ran the ball, but not much.”

On Arizona State’s physicality: “They were more physical than we were. They blocked us and we stayed blocked. We couldn’t get off blocks and they broke tackles. They were more physical than we were all across the board.”

On how the lack of time of possession on offense effected the defense: “It doesn’t change how our defense plays. We have to get the offense the ball back no matter how the offensive possession goes. Our whole job on defense is to get the ball back for the offense and we didn’t get enough stops.”

Washington tailback Bishop Sankey

On the difference between tonight and their wins: “They came to play and we didn’t. We got out-competed. We couldn’t get anything going on the ground and it remained that way throughout the game.”

On the Arizona State defensive line: “They are pretty good. They were slanting, they played hard. They shoot the gaps. Again, we didn’t come to play.”

On whether there was any confusion on offense: “There wasn’t too much confusion. They just got on us early and we couldn’t get back.”

On what he takes away for the rest of the season: “There is still a lot of football to play the rest of the season. We just have to fix what we need to fix and get back on track.”
