HEAD COACH MACK BROWN
On the game: I want to congratulate Texas A&M. I thought they did a great job. I have tremendous respect for the school and the corps and all that they stand for. I thought both teams played really hard. It was a physical game. It was a really good football game but our team didn't play consistently well and that comes back to me. We dropped passes, we didn't protect well all the time, we didn't tackle well, we gave up too many big plays and we had some mistakes in the kicking game. I love the heart of our kids. They continued to fight, they came back and gave us a chance to win at the end but I've got to do a better job. Congratulations to Dennis and their staff and their team. Again, I thought it was a great atmosphere and a great football game. I'm proud of our kids for fighting back. I thought we tried hard but didn't play well.
QB COLT MCCOY
On the game: Offensively, I don't think we were as consistent as we should have been. At the end of the game, we put our offense together but it wasn't enough. We were inconsistent up front. In the second half we got a little more consistent and it put us back the game. They gave us a lot of trouble in the first half. This week in practice we worked a lot on staying in the pocket. They bull rushed and rushed on the outside. That threw us off. Losing's hard and everyone deals with it differently.
DT FRANKLIN OKAM
On the game: We had a tough day being down so much and having to fight back to make it a close game. They're a good team. I have to give them a lot of credit. We gave ourselves a chance at the end. It was a shot, but a little one. We have to do a better job on third and we were a little inconsistent on tackling. There's a lot of improvement to be made. We'll take that in stride and get ready for our bowl game.
