A WCN News Link : Kentucky vs. LSU Post-Game Quotes
Posted by radiated on 2007/10/13 20:17:15 (1121 reads)

Kentucky Head Coach Rich Brooks
Opening statements

Micah Johnson hurt his shoulder in the first half and we had to take him out on that last stop that we had. I think Braxton (Kelley) actually made the tackle on that fourth down play. Micahs shoulders not real good. Tony Dixons hip flared up again. Andre Woodson took a shot on the touchdown pass in the ribs.

On the win
I just cant say enough about these young men. Whenever it starts to look dark, thats when they dig down and find something extra. They did it again tonight. They did it in first half, did it after LSU went up by 13 in the third quarter and they certainly did it in the overtime. I cant say enough about our defense and the way they stepped up in the overtime. The way we stayed with their receivers, covered them and rushed the passer. Im so very, very proud of this football team. Obviously this is a very, very significant win to go to 2-1 in the league. Weve got another difficult game with Florida coming up here. Well take a little time Im sure to heal up some of our bumps and bruises, but we look forward to getting this place rocking again. I want to thank the fans for sticking with us in that game and making a lot of noise and being a factor. It looks like Mitch will have to pay another fine. I guess thats become a little bit of a habit.

On the play of his team
The guts and the backbone and the character to keep coming back when things didnt look good, particularly in the third quarter when they came out and got up by 15. They were going through us and we werent doing much. All of a sudden, we come back and start making plays. I cant say enough about the guts and the character of this football team. That was a heck of a football team we beat out there tonight. Youre probably not going to get a much better game than that and it ended in our favor so our fans could enjoy it. Maybe thats payback for the one that got away.

Im just a lucky guy to be coaching a special group of young men that have really battled through more than you can imagine to get to this point.
