Quick Notes and Quotes From Tommy Bowden's Sunday Teleconference:

- Offensively we just didn't get a touchdown. We played hard, held them to 50 yards rushing...Two good teams playing, and we just lost on a last second field goal. Look for things like being over-penalized or making stupid plays. None of that.

- You've been up all night. It's going through your mind. Two good teams in a tough conference. And it came down to one team making one more play. Now we have to take the good things we did and translate it into a win. Don't have to reinvent the wheel.

- Red zone: Had chances, but that's a good team. We just didn't get it. They got one, we got none. Against good teams touchdowns in the red zones are hard to get. We didn't turn it over. We just didn't make a play.

- Morale: Always a concern, win or lose. Win and get overconfident. Lose and lose confidence. You're always battling it in this profession. I want them to come out of this and finish strong, as we have three of the last four years.

- Proctor's mobility: I thought one time he was a little passive. Had a six yard scramble when he fumbled. That was a positive gain. These teams that have a little better speed they close the gap a little quicker.

- Play-calling: Four plays came up with 200 yards. Pretty much the norm. Good teams don't give up too many big plays. If they did they wouldn't be 7-2.

- Playing eleven straight weeks is more mental than it is physical. We try to watch the physical. Think it becomes more of a mental strain.

- Losses: Two pretty good teams last two weeks. We just have to find ways to generate another point or two, or stop one more drive. I'd like to win them all.
