Tommy Bowden Sunday Teleconference
Tommy Bowden Press Conference, Windows Media, (15:41)
Quick notes and quotes from Tommy Bowden's Sunday phone session with the media:
"The biggest thing was the point of attack. Our offensive line couldn’t handle their defensive line and our defensive line couldn’t handle their offensive line. They are a very physical offensive line and defensive line."
On the bull's eye on the team... "When you start out ranked as high as we did and you play a pretty good team you better understand what you have to do to defend that right and it looks like we didn’t understand."
On practices not being tough enough..."Toughness wasn’t a question last year. Toughness hasn’t been questioned for three years and we haven’t practiced any different. I would think things like this would kind of pop up when you lose like that."
On improving the offensive line... "We will probably have to take Bobby Hutchinson out of his coach career a little early. Everybody else is here. We will have to work with what we got…. Wilson Norris, Mason Cloy, and on down the line..might possibility take a redshirt year off Matt Sanders."
- Injuries will be updated on Monday.
