Texas Tech Head Coach Mike Leach
ON KANSAS' PLAY: "He (Coach Mangino) has done a great job here and I have the utmost respect for his team and their game plan today. I was really happy and we were real fortunate to come out with a win, but the coaching staff is really doing a great job. I think Kansas deserves some credit as far as their level of play."
ON THE GAME: "I don't know if there was a real turning point in the game. We were down the whole game. I guess the only shift in the momentum came when Taurean (Henderson) scored the touchdown. That being said, it's a good win. I think we need to play a little more evenly. I didn't see what I wanted to see as far as us playing together on all three sides of the ball. I am really proud of our guys, that they were able to stay in it and finishing the way they did."
ON FIRST HALF PROBLEMS: "We kept giving the ball back to them (Kansas), and I thought we were spotty on all sides of the ball."
ON TECH'S TOUCHDOWN AT THE END OF THE FIRST HALF: "I think it really helped our momentum in the second half. We felt like we should have played better in the first half and we are really happy with the way we played in the second half. We really turned our mentality around in the second half. We were still sloppy at times but I was happy with how we stuck with it."
Senior Wide Receiver Trey Haverty
ON TEXAS TECH ABILITY TO COME BACK: "I've never seen a better defensive performance. It's frustrating when we start so slow. I just want to congratulate the defense, they really bailed me out when I dropped that pass."
ON TECH'S GAME WINNING TOUCHDOWN:
"We knew we could run the ball and all Taurean (Henderson) needed was a little daylight."
Junior Runningback Taurean Henderson
ON THE GAME WINNING TOUCHDOWN: "The whole time I was thinking about scoring. Every time I touch the ball I think I'm going to take it to the house. I was actually surprised about the call."
ON THE RUNNING GAME: "We view it as a whole team effort with everyone contributing to the game. We started running the ball more this week. You have to get in a groove on offense."
Senior Quarterback Sonny Cumbie
On the game: "With the explosiveness of our offense, we always feel like we are in the game. It's the confidence we have in our team. In the second half, I finally started hitting my receivers. The guys up front really established their dominance. Chad Johnson's interception really gave us momentum. Overcoming two scores for us isn't much."
