Ole Miss Football Postgame Quotes
Ole Miss vs. Arkansas
Vaught-Hemingway Stadium – Oxford, Miss.
Nov. 9, 2013

Ole Miss Head Coach Hugh Freeze

On the game …
“We’re very excited to be bowl eligible with three games remaining. We knew this would be a tough game for us. It’s good to get guys healed up during an off week, but it seemed we played a little sluggish. It’s a great sign for our program in year two that we’re able to win an SEC football game and not play our best.”

On bowl eligibility both years …
“My first spring, we had a lot of issues. To be bowl eligible each of the first two years, we are ahead of schedule. I did expect to be bowl eligible this year after last year, but my plan when I first came in was to get to a bowl in year three.”

On the team …
“We are maturing and heading in the right direction. We’re still young at a lot of places. I was concerned about how we would react to the first early game. We didn’t have quite the energy early in the game, but we still won the game.”

On Ole Miss’ receivers …
“I haven’t had receivers to this level at others schools. I’ve followed Ole Miss football for a long time, and our group could arguably be one of the top receiving corps throughout history.”

Ole Miss Student-Athletes

#1, Dehendret Collins, DB
On game against Arkansas …
“Big win for us. With this win we become bowl eligible. I think the team started out sort of slow, but we picked it up at the end to get the win.”

On Troy …
“We have to keep the focus we had this week and bring the focus like we have had the last three games.”

#85, Ja-Mes Logan, WR
On bowl eligibility …
“It feels really good to be bowl eligible back to back years. We just have to keep our focus. We are playing well right now and it feels good.”

On preparation for Troy …
“Working hard, keep focusing like we have and come out and play hard next Saturday.”

#14, Bo Wallace, QB
On today’s game …
“The coaches gave us a great plan, the offensive line played well and the receivers caught the ball. Overall we had a great game.”

On offensive line …
“I can’t tell you how good of a job the offensive line did. They had one of the best defensive lines that we’ve played all year, and they did a great job of keeping them away from me.”

On Ja-Mes Logan…
“He’s a smart guy. He’s able to get open and make great plays. He’s one of our most clutch receivers.”

#9, D.T. Shackelford, LB
On today’s game…
“I’m just put in the right position to make plays and it feels great to contribute to a win like this. It all comes with preparation, and I’m blessed to be able to make those plays at the right time.”

On Arkansas rushing …
“I think it was a team effort that goes from the coaches down. We were just telling ourselves we weren’t going to be another one of those teams to give up big rushing plays. The defensive line really stepped up. The safeties were flying everywhere like they always do, and the linebackers played hard. It was a great total team effort.”

Arkansas Head Coach Bret Bielema

On the Game…
“Obviously, getting very frustrated with the position that we’re in today, having the chance to win a game and can’t pull it off just because of some things that fundamentally break down for us.

“Obviously, we want wins and it’s hard to say that a 3-7 football team is in the right direction, but I think it is. It reminds me so much of different things I’ve seen and experienced with programs, it’s going through some really dark days to get to where we really want to be, and I hope that day comes soon.”

On Julian Horton…
“Horton, is a guy that amaze me the way he’s come back in the past two weeks and as a head coach, you always get frustrated if you’re in this situation. I’ve never been at this point, but your seniors are usually the ones that disconnect and you lose them. A guy like Julian Horton comes up with four catches today, practicing as well as I’ve ever seen him practice, doing everything we want him to do away from the game.”

On the possession in the third quarter …
“Obviously, Jonathan Williams, who we know can throw the football, threw a couple to the same side and a sweep play. We wanted to throw a throwback to Brandon (Allen) and obviously it didn’t break or execute as clean as we wanted.”

Arkansas Student-Athletes

#2, Julian Horton, WR
On not being bowl eligible with only two games left …
“It’s about pride. It’s about what we do to keep building each week, keep grinding each and every day, and keep working and be motivated for the next two games.”

On being motivated as a senior…
“To finish my career strong. Just finishing strong and being proud and being motivated to go out there and play my heart out.”

On Arkansas’ passing game…
“Right now we’re doing a great job. I think our receivers are doing a great job of catching the ball and being confident. I think we can keep being prominent.”

On the state of the program…
“It’s just about being prideful about our program. We are Arkansas, and we’re trying to get back to the way we used to be, so each and every week we’re going to keep trying to do better and keep being motivated to go out there and get wins.”
