Player Quotes from Media Day
Players speak up on several topics.
August 19, 1998
On Texas and Texas A&M being chosen over them to win the Big 12 South
"We don't mind being the underdog. We are going to prove that we have
players that can play ball just like they have players who can play ball.
We'll just have to do our best every Saturday."
On playing in the NFL
"It's a thought in my mind, but I still have to prove myself this year to
have a shot at that honor. If I get there, that's great, but if I don't
I'll be a successful coach and teacher."
On the offense
"Last year after Donnie got hur our passing game suffered, because everyone
else was young and we didn't have very many people. This year we have a
lot of depth and we expect Ricky Williams to have another great year.
Hopefully we'll keep everybody healthy and the defenses off balance."
On the passing game
"I think Derrick Dorris is going to have a great year. I think Donnie Hart
is going to see a lot of attention with double coverage the first few games
which will create one-on-one opportunities for Derrick. I know he can get
open, and I'll hopefully get thim the ball."
On the offensive line
"We have great guys up front. We are all big and all strong. We come off
the ball real well and are beginning developled an attitude that says we
want to be one of the best in the country."
On taking over the starting safety job
"I'm approaching it with a lot of confidence. Last year I came in as a
freshman and didn't play much. I played behind Dayne Johnson. He taught
me a lot that I will carry into the season."
