2010 Red-White game quotes

Arkansas QuotesHead Coach Bobby Petrino“I thought it was real competitive. I thought the players were flying around and competing. We were sloppy at certain things particularly putting the ball on the ground, that’s something we don’t do a lot of. Maybe it’s because we were hitting hard and flying to the ball.”“This game really helped our week of practice. It causes you to be competitive but it also causes you to be sloppy because you don’t have all the first team playing together.”“Anytime you have depth like we have, the guys are working each day to move up on the depth chart. Certainly that was a big part of it tonight.”“It was a fun spring game, really fun for the players. It was a good way to end our spring football.”“We moved the ball well at times but we struggled to complete some passes. Part of that was the pass rush and the other part was that guys were out of rhythm at times.”Quarterback Tyler Wilson“I would say today was successful. Overall, though, we have to get better all around.”“The turnovers were the most frustrating part of today.”“I think all of the QB’s had a great day.”“We can do better in the passing game. Our goal is 75 to 80% completion rates. This spring we had around 65 to 70% completion rates. So, we have to get better there.”Defensive end Jake Bequette“It was a lot of fun. We got to pin our ears back and play. No blitzes were called today so we got to work on technique. One thing we want to work on is how we play in the fourth quarter. It was great to get the competitive juices flowing again.”Quarterback Brandon Mitchell“After I got past the corner, I saw it was going to be an easy touchdown.”“Neither one of us can fill Ryan’s shoes. We just want to add some more dimension to the offense.”“Coach Petrino and Magee did a great job of getting me mentally and physically prepared to play.”Wide receiver Jarius Wright“Jacoby played real well. He came out with confidence which is big for a freshman. I mean he should still be in high school right now.”“The QB’s looked great as far as getting the checks down. I enjoyed watching Brandon play.”Cornerback Jerico Nelson“To me, our whole team is trying to bring the swag. We are trying to make a name for ourselves. Our defense doesn’t want to be at the bottom of the pole. We want to be up there with the offense.”
