Honestly, don't believe anything that you read.
We were banged up. We were beat up. We were tired. We were exhausted in the month of October. That's not an excuse. That's reality. And our guys fought through it and they fought through that adversity and they never wavered ... and when you get the band back together and you get everybody healthy and everybody fresh and everybody doing their job ... we can play with anybody in the country. And we proved that again tonight.
When we're fresh, we're healthy, we can play with anybody in the country.
You're not going to win very many games against really good teams on the road turning the ball over three times, one for a touchdown, snapping the ball over the punter's head and letting them rush for 300 yards.
Pound for pound, if not the, then (he is) one of the strongest guys on our team. He runs really, really hard. He's fast so when he is in the open field, he can run away from people and run through some angles, but he's also really good at running in traffic with some strength and power behind him to bounce off some arm tackles.
It's a testament to, no matter the physical mismatches that may exist on a football field, if you play really hard and you have a purpose about you and that purpose is the love of your teammates and coaches, then you will be able to do things that a lot of people think might not be possible.
That was a point of emphasis going into the season, so we really need to evaluate what we're doing and who were putting on that team.
We have to be able to run the ball. When you have a 16-point lead late in the fourth quarter you have to get a few first downs and keep your defense off the field. We were at the 14-minute mark about to go up 40-17 against the No. 3 team in the country, and we fumbled the ball in the end zone and put our defense out on the field. That is obviously very unacceptable.
We knew this short week was coming. Our coaches have looked at the preliminary scouting report on Cincinnati, but we will spend zero practice time and game planning time on anyone other than Lamar.
