Texas A&M/ULL Post-game quotes
Franchione on the Aggies' Running Game: "I felt like this was a team going into the game that we could run the ball on. We still maintained pretty good balance. We've got depth at that position and with the way the line played and controlled the line of scrimmage, the quarterbacks read the zone well. That's the way this game has been shortened with these new clock rules. I think that that is a big asset that hopefully we can take with us week in and week out to some degree as a strength."
Franchione on the Team's Improvement From Week 1 to Week 2: "My impression leaving the field tonight is yes, that we improved in just about every aspect. We didn't have many penalties, didn't turn the ball over, didn't miss a lot of tackles, didn't miss a lot of assignments, played very physical. We got a team in position to finish them and we did . . . I don't think we let them look good tonight. I think our team contested just about everything defensively and offensively we didn't slow down much whether it was the first offensive line or second offensive line in the game. The defense had total control most of the time."
ULL Head Coach Rickey Bustle on the Game: "We're going to have to get back to fundamental things. We got beat one-on-one. They didn't pressure us at all. We didn't defend the quarterback. They just whipped us. We knew they had more in their offense. They threw the ball a little bit more. If we just read their keys and do the right things, we'll be closer to the right place."
ULL Quarterback Michael Desormeaux on Texas A&M's Defensive Line: "They were really good up front. I'm not taking anything away from any position out there. They were amazing on d-line. They put pressure on our passing game and that caused us to not be able to throw the ball very effectively and it made it easier on their defensive backs."
