Quotes from Weekend Football Scrimmage

Quotes from Tommy Bowden

"You keep saying you want to see one side dominate and it wasn’t the side I wanted (to see). The offense did pretty much what they wanted. It lets you know you’re not where you need to be. You would like to see a little more consistentency defensively."

"You are going to come out here in the spring and as much as you would like to see one side dominate the whole spring, it is just not going to happen."

"We’re doing a pretty good job of coaching on both sides of the ball. There
are going to be periods when one side looks better than the other side.
Today, offensively we did."

"The offensive line kind of took control, but quarterbacks threw the ball
well, receivers caught the ball well, and the backs ran well."

"He (Jacoby Ford) took a collision and took a hit, but he held on to the ball in the red

"There were a bunch of big plays offensively and that’s what you look for;
enough skill people that can make them. It’s kind of hard to pick out people
offensively because there are so many."

(On defense) "I just sat there and watched the defense when they came out there. They came
out straggling. There was no enthusiasm, no fire, and no effort. It was
completely opposite of Wednesday."

“I told them ‘you watch, let Boston College or Florida State see that
demeanor on the field. You’ll get killed."

(On Jacoby Ford) He did have some catches now that you mention him. He’s not
like one of those high-maintenece forgein cars, he is a local
America car – he is a Ford. Maybe we will get him back. You can see his
speed. He made some runs that were really impressive on reverses. He took
some shots. He has some toughness about him and that’s one thing you’re glad
because you like to see a guy who does have his speed that can take a
collision and catch a ball in the crowd. Those are things track guys
normally can’t do.

"It’s the best all three of our quarterbacks have looked. Throwing and
catching, it is the best we’ve done."

"When both teams have the potential to be kind of good, it’s going to go back
and forth. I prefer it be heavily skewed to the defense. The next time we
scrimmage, I hope those jokers in the white come in a little mad. If they
are, that will be good because that will show me something."

"No turnovers and no big plays. I didn’t see much consistently at all.
Tackling look kind of (bad), one turnover. It didn’t look like we got a lot of pressure on when we rushed
the passer.”

Quotes from Will Proctor

"We had a lot of things clicking for us today."

"Defense got us on Wednesday though I still think we played well on
Wednesday, but we have been installing so much that yesterday and today we
went back and reviewed some stuff and practiced stuff that we were good at.

Quotes from James Davis

"We ran the ball well and threw the ball so this was probably the most
complete day we have had."

"You can’t key on just one player. We have Will, Chansi, Rendrick, Tyler,
it’s hard to key on just one player. We do a lot of stuff on offense that
really looks the same, but it can be a different play."

"We played better today because they weren’t able to adjust, but I guarantee
they will probably come back better when we come back to practice."

"I like it, we did it a little bit of it in high school. It is like a high
school style with power like the ole’ days. I kind of like it."
