“First off, we are very disappointed in the loss this evening, but we do credit Missouri for a fine effort. They’re a very good ball club. We knew coming in that it was going to be a challenge for our football team. They certainly exemplify the ability to execute. They made the plays they needed to win the game.”


On starting 1-1 in Big 12 Conference play

“It’s not our standard of football. Certainly we can play better. We are certainly not out of [the Big 12 North race]. It was a conference game that was important to us. Anything can happen right now.”


On the play of Missouri quarterback Chase Daniel


“He’s an excellent quarterback. I had a chance to visit with him before the game, and I told him I thought he was having a heck of a year. He has excellent control of what [Missouri] is trying to accomplish with their offense and that was pretty indicative tonight.”


On Missouri’s fake field touchdown with the score 34-6


“They did a good job with that fake field goal. That’s none of my business if they want to run that play. Our business is to defend it.”
