ULM Head Coach Weatherbie:
“It came down to making plays. We had several opportunities to win. On our last drive we drove the ball all the way down the field and didn’t make the catch on that shovel pass. We still had a chance with the 45-yard field goal and it just didn’t go our way. They deserved to win it in the 4th quarter. They won it last week in the 4th and that makes it easier for them to believe. We thought we had a great chance to beat a good SEC team in Arkansas, and came here expecting to.”

“Anthony McCall played really well toward the end of the game. He made a few big catches for us and has the ability to become a great player.”

(4th down pass to Chris Gragg)
“We know (Bobby) Petrino will do stuff like that. He’s a riverboat gambler, so to speak, and it was a great call. We have to regroup and put this one behind us. It was a great game and come Monday we will move on.”

Anthony McCall, WR:
“We got off to a great start. This was the loudest crowd we will face and that really motivated us. This is the toughest conference in college football and they gave us everything they had and it showed in the end. We came in and played our hearts out.”

Kinsmon Lancaster, QB
“We came out and played and it came down to who wanted it more, and they did in the end. We made the plays, things just didn’t go our way in the end. All 11 have to execute and find a way to win in the end of the game.”
