1. “What’s kind of funny about that, or what’s really strange is that there’s a lot of guys that have played a lot of football here. It’s not like it’s young guys. I think sometimes their intentions are really good and when something happens they have to get through it and let it go; don’t hold on to it.”

2. “When you’re down you’re kind of stunned, like ‘wait a minute, what just happened?’ But I thought our guys for the most part (gave great effort). Defensively, we were behind the 8-ball early with a couple turnovers and stopped them. But offensively we could never get out of our own way. We dropped some big-time balls on third down and didn’t get in the red zone. We got down there and didn’t score.”

3. “Five turnovers is way too many, and defensively they beat us on the 50-50 ball, they threw it up, they caught it. We had some opportunities to catch some balls and we didn’t. It became one of those games where all of the sudden they got up early and we were playing catch-up football, and that’s always hard to do. Then, it puts you in a position where you can’t control the tempo of how you want to play the game, or run the football in a sense that we’re trying to keep their offense off the field.”

4. “They did a nice job of getting out early to an early lead against us and I think our players took this home venue for granted, thinking that if we play at home then everything is going to work out. But it doesn’t work out when you turn the ball over, and drop balls, and give big plays in the passing game. We have a lot of fixing to do.”

5. “I think sometimes we hold on to it a bit too long and that’s my assessment of it, that’s how I look at it. It’s a resilient group of guys, they’re hurting that’s no doubt. They’re hurting bad in the locker room. It’s going to hurt and it should hurt; it’s not fun when you lose. You lose two in a row, that sense of accomplishment that you haven’t had in a couple weeks, it’s been three weeks because we had a bye, we have to find a way to win a game so we can get some joy back in the locker room.”

6. “I thought we played hard. I think sometimes when you get down like that, you don’t see energy, but I don’t think our players don’t play hard. I hear that a lot in football, ‘players don’t play hard,’ but I think it’s energy.”

7. “Second half was a little bit better defensively. I thought we did some things early. We got off the field, but offensively we kind of got going in the second half but it was just way too late. A lot of work to do, that’s what we’ve got to do.”

8. “A goal without a plan is a wish. What’s your plan? It’s on you, because you have to do all the work..”

9. “Former NFL Coach Herm Edwards On Leadership, Legacy, And Living To Make A Difference”.”

10. “I’m not a panic guy. I don’t do that. Can’t. When you’re a leader, you can never panic, no matter what’s happening. The building could be falling down. Fire could be going all places. Somebody has to make a decision on how to get out.”

11. “That’s always a concern with a player when he’s injured. There’s a difference between injured and pain. If a guy’s injured, he’s injured. Pain is pain. Guys can play with pain. Guys can’t play when they’re injured.”

12. “Am I supposed to be looking at you? Am I looking at you, cameraman? Who am I looking at? That camera? OK. Got all these cameras, I don’t know who to look at. Who’s in charge of this? Send somebody up here and say what camera you’re supposed to look at. OK, you guys are supposed to ask questions! Start asking.”

13. “I live by this motto: To have a successful life, the first thing you have to realize is what is your purpose in life? And then from there, be committed to reaching your full potential at that purpose. And then once you find it, help others succeed. When you think about football, you’re able to do that, really able to do that as a coach.”

14. “I’ve never had a job. I’ve always been involved in football — playing football, coaching football, talk about football. That’s what I’ve done. That’s what I do.”

15. “People think, ‘Well, he’s out of football.’ Out of football maybe on the sidelines. But mentally, you’re never out of football. It’s like being a football fan. At what age do you stop watching it? You don’t.”

16. “Arizona State was one of my top two schools when I was getting recruited to figure out where I was gonna go. And Frank Kush recruited me. I tell people all the time one of the reasons I didn’t go is because they couldn’t play in a Rose Bowl. So I went to Cal, so it’s kind of a complete circle to me.”

17. “There’s two type of people in this world. There’s the people that are interested, and there’s people that are committed. I want committed players that want to be the best student-athlete that they can be, along with playing the game of football. That’s the kind of person I want, OK? Is that okay for you? Good enough answer? OK, all right. Just making sure.”

18. “I would hope that if you need someone else to motivate you, that’s not good. I learned this a long time ago on how I grew up. You’ve got to be able to bet on yourself. You don’t let other people set your expectations. Don’t fall into that trap.”

19. “I don’t know what I’m talking about….”

20. “I don’t know what I’m talking about a whole lot. My box and my world is really simple. Kind of real small. I don’t get outside my lane. I just get in my box. I think I know a little bit about the game of football. Not a lot, just a little. But enough to warrant if I speak, (players are) going to listen. I hope, anyway.”

21. “I don’t know what happens on the outside world, and I’m not saying that to belittle what you guys do. I was in your world. I was in people’s homes every night, every morning. I don’t read it. I don’t watch it. I am a football coach.”

22. “Oh were we (picked sixth)? Somebody’s got to be first, somebody’s got to be sixth. OK, it’s great. Doesn’t matter to me.”
