Post Game Quotes: Texas Tech 63, Kansas 21

New, comment



Texas Tech Head Coach Mike Leach his thoughts on the game:

"I was really happy with the way our team came out. We were excited to prepare all week and we played well when we got here. Our defense got better and better as the game went on. Offensively we were really steady. Kansas is a good football team, as everybody knows. But sometimes you get on a roll and that helps you out a lot."

Senior Quarterback Graham Harrell on the way Texas Tech attacked KU’s defense:

"We weren’t concentrating on what they were trying to do we were focused on executing and moving the ball. That’s what we did. We went out there and executed well. When we play like that we’re tough to beat. When our line protects we’re tough to beat."

Sophomore Running Back Baron Batch on the goal for the season:

"We’re taking it one game at a time and one play at time. We’re focusing on not looking ahead and knowing that the most important opponent we’re playing in the one we’re playing that week."

Kansas Head Coach Mark Mangino on how the game slipped away:

"When they held the ball, they had sustained drives. They mixed it up with the run and the pass. They were able to eat up the clock. They kept our offense off the field quite a bit. They controlled the ball for long periods of time, and then we turn the ball over, which didn’t help the situation, because you can’t give them a short field like that. That’s probably the biggest reason, but we just didn’t play well. They’re a very good football team and we didn’t match up with them like we would have liked to."

Junior Safety Darrell Stuckey on if Texas Tech is the best offense the defense has faced:

"I don’t know if I can say that, but they are up there with some of the top offenses. Their quarterback plays with such great confidence that it makes it tough."

Senior Quarterback Todd Reesing on the pressure of the Texas Tech defense forcing his mistakes:

"I am not sure it was the pressure they were putting on me. The first one was just a bad throw. Dexton (Fields) was open and I was throwing on the run and just couldn’t get a good ball out there to him. The next one I was just unsure of what to do with the ball and the guy made a good play. The last one was the same thing, the guy just made a good play. I’ve never had that happen to me in a lot of years of football to have back-to-back mistakes like that. Sometimes when things go bad they can get real bad. You can’t really sugarcoat that. We just didn’t play very well in the second half. We started off not too bad on offense, we were moving the ball. Then they kept scoring and we couldn’t respond. And then we started to fall apart in the second half."
