Ole Miss Head Coach Hugh Freeze

Opening Statement:
“It was obviously a pretty good beating that Georgia put on us today. Offensively, we just couldn’t make any plays to give our defense much hope. It was the first time this season that I felt like we were zapped of our passion. We knew that it would be really tough to score a lot of points against Georgia. It think this will be a very good test to see how this team bounces back, We have to let this one go because we still have a lot to play for.”

On the touchdown passes that gave Georgia the lead:
“The first was just bad eyes. They were looking in the backfield instead of looking at your man. We have some freshmen back there who just got out position. We missed some guys today. We’re very young back there and they exposed that today.”

On the offense:
“We knew exactly what they were going to do, but we could never block their inside guys and couldn’t get our run game going. When you can't get your running game going, guys like Jarvis Jones are going to tee off and make your pass game really difficult too. If you can’t run against Cover 2, then it’s going to make it very hard to throw the ball.”

On the four turnovers in 60 seconds:
“I think that was huge momentum shift in the game. We catch that ball inside the 20, and then give it back to them and they return it to the other side of the field. Every game that we have lost, we haven’t taken care of the ball. We survived that by making then turn it over but we threw it right back to them. I thought Bo had a chance to use his legs to get us some first downs, but he chose to throw the ball. That was a big momentum shift.”

On whether the team took a step back:
“I’d have to watch the film, but we certainly weren’t as in sync. We have to look at our coaches, our game plan, our quarterback and our blocking, but I think we took a step back offensively today. Then again, Georgia is very talented defensively.”

Quarterback Bo Wallace

“They have some real ballers on defense. They have two guys that are going to be top five draft picks, and they were just really tough to deal with. Going into halftime, I really thought we were still in the game, but they came to play in the second half and we just couldn’t get back in it.”

Defensive End Jason Jones

“We’re just going to go back to work this week. The Georgia game is over, and those 60 minutes are gone. We’ve got to stay together. You can never stay down. We’ve got to pick each other up. It’s about the team and not any one person, and we’ve got to respond as a team.”
