Kansas State Postgame Quotes
Saturday, Nov. 10, 2007
Memorial Stadium (Lincoln, Neb.)
Wide Receiver Jordy Nelson
On Nebraska's kick return for a touchdown
"It was obviously a big play. They responded. That is part of our special teams that we have not been very good at and it hurt us again today. When you get a lead, you cannot give seven points right back to them. It was a big play in the game."
On two dissappointing losses in two weeks
"I do not think we will lay down. Last week we had the best week of practice here since I have been at Kansas State. If people are going to want to quit, we will make sure they are not on the field."
On how he would define this loss
"It was not a good one. The score obviously shows it. Any loss, I think, is obviously not a good one. The way they scored, it was not great. A loss is a loss and this was not a good one, but we have to move on."
On where the team goes after the last two losses
"We've got a game on Saturday. We have to prepare because I am sure Missouri is not going to come into Manhattan feeling sorry for us. We just have to get back to work. Keep going forward and get ready to play."
On the mood of the football team
"We are not feeling good right now. We will just have to take it and move on."
Defensive Back Marcus Watts
On the kickoff return for a touchdown
"On special teams right now we are just not executing right. Nebraska did a good job today. They were executing in all three phases. You have to credit Nebraska."
On if the team is quitting or if Nebraska was just that good today
"No, I do not think we have quit. We do not have guys with that kind of character. Our leaders would not let that happen. It was just that Nebraska did a great job against us today. They put a whooping on us."
On what has happened to KSU's defense the last two games
"It is the same old story. Being blocked and missing tackles is something that we are still having problems with. It seems like we can not get it corrected. You have to give credit to Nebraska. They played hard today. We knew coming in that there offense was going to be tough for us. They are a power running team and we are not the biggest defense. We just did not make tackles today."
On if the team is thinking too much about quitting
"I do not think if you play football you ever think that. If you think that, you should not be playing football. You have to give credit where credit is due and give credit to Nebraska."
On how he would describe the game
"I think anything you want to put, it is. We are embarassed."
