Baylor at Texas A&M
September 29, 2007
Kyle Field - College Station, Texas

On the game ...
"We had a pretty good game plan and we felt we prepared well, but they (Texas A&M) are a good football team and outplayed us. They have good players and their style of offense is pound the ball and kill the clock. Our defense gave up too many yards and we couldn't get off the field. They kept running the ball and found holes in our defense. We felt like we were in the game at halftime."

On the game ...
"Overall, we didn't play well and didn't come out and play. Drops and penalties were killers today. We have to catch the ball better and I have to throw the ball better. They didn't take anything away from us, we just killed ourselves. Our time of possession was horrible. The defense did a really good job in the first half. We have to improve on only six first downs in the game. These are conference games and we have to step up to the challenge. The teams and the speed of the Big 12 are a lot better than our non-conference schedule."

On the game ...
"We couldn't get anything going offensively. Our defense was out on the field for 94 plays in the heat. Their running game just wore us down. At halftime, we talked about how we were still in the game. We just couldn't get it done. I told the team after the game, you have to come out and play. I think our kids play better at home and I hope this wakes our team up. I don't think we executed very well. Protection was pretty good and we just couldn't find a rhythm. We live and die by the pass and if you can't catch, you die."
