Nebraska at #4 Oklahoma
Saturday, Nov. 1, 2008
Gaylord Family-Memorial Stadium
Nebraska Coach Bo Pelini
On Quarterback Joe Ganz
"He started off bad and had some bad things happen to him. Joe is a guy that has been carrying us and has been making a ton of plays for us. To his credit, I thought that he came back and played better. I thought that he responded well. He is a tough guy and has a lot of character about him and I was proud about how he came back in the game."
On bouncing back
"I have a good feeling that this team will bounce back. One thing that I can say is that ‘this is not a football team that points fingers’ and we are not a team that is divisive. This a team that is going to hang in thick and thin. We are going to keep working. I do appreciate the way they didn’t quit but I would not expect anything less from these guys."
On the defense
"That was a poorly coached defense out there and I am at the head of that."
On the game
"We did not respond well as a team to some of the adversity that we had and we had some busts on defense. We were not on the same page for whatever reason. Whether we got big eyes when things did not go our way or didn’t respond as well as I would have liked. We didn’t make a play when the momentum was going against us and you have to make a play."
"That is a heck of a football team. They are a damn good football team. I give all the credit to Oklahoma. They beat us in every phase of the game tonight."
On I-back Roy Helu Jr.
"I thought that Roy played really well tonight. He just kept playing."
