USU Football Press Conference Quotes (Oct. 11)

Oct. 11, 2004

Head Coach Mick Dennehy

On The North Texas game

"Looking back at the game on film, I feel that our kids competed, but it is the little things that end up being reasons why you do not win, including catching the ball and holding on to the ball."

"Everybody looks at (quarterback Travis) Cox and has a tendency to point a finger. However, what everyone fails to realize is that Cox led us down the field three or four times after the turnover in the end zone."

"With the exception of three or four plays on defense, we are getting better. We even moved the ball better on offense - as well as we have all year long verses a good football team."

On a 1-2 Sun Belt Conference Start

"You do not tell your team anything different that you have not talked about all year. There are still things our team can accomplish, which would be very satisfying in terms of continuing to work as a football team to get better."

On Leon Jackson III filling in as punter againt North Texas

"Leon was a punter in high school and did a great job. It was a little bit different than standing back there and taking two steps and punting the ball like he is used to."

On Clemson

"We have not seen Clemson play a whole ball game. On game film, they may be as talented as team physically as we are going to play against."

"Clemson has suffered through some of the same kind of things we have. Clemson has not has not done a great job of protecting the football."

USU Linebacker Jared Johnstun

On Playing Clemson

"Anytime we go back east and play one of the big teamsm it is a big game. It is a chance we can show people we can still play ball, even though a Sun Belt title may be out of the question. Clemson has great players on offense, which is expected from a team in the ACC."
