On no longer being eligible for a bowl game:
“We’re not happy. You play for a bowl game, you play for championships, and you play to win. After a loss, it’s tough. Especially knowing that you’re not going to be able to go to a bowl game for our seniors and the guys graduating. But we’ll move on. We have a big one next week.”
On the North Carolina defense:
“It’s a really talented defensive line that we played against tonight. This is what they do. They’re going to get after quarterbacks. They don’t do a lot of crazy stuff with linebackers, like bringing eight guys to overload you. They just let the front four go to work, and that’s how they make their money.”
On Carolina’s defense on the 4th and 1:
“It’s one yard and you have to snip the end zone. I didn’t do a good job on my part getting in. You have to do anything possible to get in. That’s why I’m kind of hurt right now. You watch that film and learn from it, you learn from your mistakes and you fix those mistakes.”
On not going to a bowl this year:
“I think it will hit me in the morning, later on when I think about it. Give it up to Carolina, they came in and they played a really good game. They had a good game plan against us. We didn’t make the plays we needed to. It hurts right now, but we’ll bounce back we still have one game left in Blacksburg. We’ll see what happens.”
On his emotions right now:
“It’s a lot of emotions. I love the fans, the energy everyone brings. I love the team so it’s disappointing. It hurts honestly. You put in so much work, so much effort, all the guys collectively. When everyone works extremely hard to reach a goal and you come up short. I tell all the young guys we have to value the game and value what it gives you. It gives you an opportunity to do something you love. Whenever you step on the field that’s how you have to approach it, enjoying the game you love. I appreciate everybody, all the fans, the program has been amazing.”
Gotta give it up to La'Roy. He played a hell of a game last night and was all over the field. Feel sorry that we won't get him into a bowl game for his final season, but he had a great career at UVA after all the changes.
Kevin, it wasn't your fault that you didn't get that TD on that 4th and 1. Barry Sanders or Earl Campbell couldn't have gotten in the endzone on that play. It should have been a play action pass or a pass to the flat. The whole defense went ALL out to stop the run.
Which was obvious to everyone watching that game. Heck the 7 year old behind me knew it was a dumb play.
We ran the same formation as 3rd down, the same four players changing their position before the play, I think I could have taken 11 fans out of the stands and defended the play, we all knew exactly what was going to happen.
Same play happened last year when we played Tech. It changed the trajectory of that game too. It would be nice to learn from the mistakes of the past instead of doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results. We have to put the kids in a position to succeed. You can't block 11 guys.
