Texas A&M/Citadel Post-game quotes
Texas A&M Head Coach Dennis Franchione on turnovers: "Obviously offensively we've got to hold onto the football. That's not a characteristic of our team to lay it on the ground. I think it's one of the few games we lost the turnover battle and won the game. I don't like that statistic."
Franchione on McGee: "For the most part he was a good field general. He directed the team well and gave them a lot of energy. He didn't turn the ball over except for a center-quarterback exchange problem which he has to temper some responsibility for that but I think the center would probably take most of it in that situation. The one play that he had that was bothersome to me was he took a sack at the end of the first half. In that situation you always throw the ball away and let us have the short field goal attempt. That's just pocket presence. He held onto the ball a little bit long a few times and that'll come with more relationships in that area of the passing game."
Citadel Quarterback Duran Lawson: "We came out and executed pretty good. One of our goals was to hold onto the ball and keep the defense off the field. Time management was one of the things we were really focused on. I really don't think we need to make many changes; we just need to execute and finish plays."
Citadel Head Coach Kevin Higgins: "On offense, we dropped too many passes. We had guys in the right position but we just didn't finish the plays. I was really proud of our defense. We forced several turnovers and got the ball back for our offense, but we were unable to produce anything with that."
