Tommy Bowden Press Conference

On Virginia quarterback Matt Schaub:

"I watched the South Carolina film (UVA's only loss), so it's pretty
obvious what he means to this team. He was the conference player of
the year last season. He's a very experienced guy. If you bring
heat, he's seen it. He's seen all the looks and all the angles. His
leadership and confidence probably permeates throughout the whole
team. I think we've seen what happens when he doesn't play."


On Saturday's game being a must-win situation:

"I don't approach it that way with the team, because there are still
seven games left. It's an important game; it's a big game. They're
bigger and magnified every week you play, especially in conference
play. The players know how big this one is. There are two
undefeated conference teams right now, and Virginia is one of them."


On the injury situation:

"Charlie Whitehurst and all of the guys that were injured will all be
listed as day-to-day. None of them practiced yesterday. There's a
good chance some of them won't play. Khaleed Vaughn is doubtful.
They'll all be limited in practice today."


On the running game:

"We'd been pretty good protecting Charlie up until the Maryland game.
We had a couple of technique issues and some missed assignments, so
we gave up a few sacks. I have to keep it in context. We got
behind, tried to throw a lot, and then gave up a few sacks. That, of
course, takes away from some running yardage. Was it good enough,
no. I'm not trying to say that. But I don't think we need a major
overhaul."


On the physical nature of the Maryland game:

"The Maryland game was the most he's been hit this year. We had two
sacks on their quarterback, so we hit him pretty good as well.
Charlie's foot injury was not the result of one of their hits. It
happened out of bounds. But it was not one of Charlie's better
games. He forced a lot of things early."


On increasing the workload for Yusef Kelly:

"We'll find out this week how he's coming along. He was our No. 1
tailback going into the spring. He came back overweight, then got
injured. Then he got injured again. I'm hoping he'll come back to
how he was. Against South Carolina last year, he was pretty
productive. He was very physical, broke some tackles, and got
stronger as the game went along. We're hoping he brings the same
thing to the table that he did that day against South Carolina (last
year)."
