Ole Miss Football Postgame Quotes
Ole Miss vs. Missouri
Vaught-Hemingway Stadium - Oxford, Miss.
Nov. 23, 2013

Head Coach Hugh Freeze

On the game...
"We're obviously disappointed that we didn't have a chance to win at the end. They are a very good football team; they take you out of a lot of things. They are excellent up front on both sides. We needed to play a good game, and we didn't play well enough. We have to put it past us and move forward with the short week."

On Bo Wallace...
"Last night at the hotel he started feeling awful and running a fever. We got him on an IV today, but he looked a little glassy eyed early on. I wasn't sure how effective he would be, but he wanted to go hard and compete. Hopefully he can get well this weekend."

On red zone struggles...
It's impossible to beat a top-10 team when you get in the red zone and don't score touchdowns or points. We had the blocked field goal, then a drop and a bad call on the reverse. If you don't score some points in the red zone against that team you aren't going to win."

On the Egg Bowl...
"They (Mississippi State) are a good football team. They are so good up front that they can be in any game. They will be very emotional, not only because it is the Egg Bowl, but because they're playing for extra practices and a bowl game."

Ole Miss Players

#5, I'Tavius Mathers, RB
On preparing for the Egg Bowl...
"We just have to get better, and be more prepared. It'll be a tough one since they're playing for a bowl game."

#11, Barry Brunetti, QB
On preparing for the Egg Bowl...
"We have to put this game behind us, and forget about it after tonight. We have to come back in tomorrow and start preparing for Mississippi State. We'll have to give it our best shot since they'll be playing for a bowl game. We have to prepare for a good Mississippi State team next week and just stay focused. We can't let this one get to us; we still have a lot to play for."

#38, Mike Marry, LB
On the looming Mississippi State game...
"It means a lot to me because my games are numbered. I hate tough losses. They are a very good football team. They have a lot to play for. They are fighting to become bowl eligible. We were in the same position last year, so we know how they feel."

On importance of in-state battle...
"It's a crucial game. People around town don't care if you win a single game, as long as you beat State they are happy. It is similar to the Florida vs. Florida State rivalry."

#25, Cody Prewitt, DB
On Missouri...
"They were a very good football team. This one is going to hurt a little bit because I know what we are capable of. Not taking anything away from them, but we did not play to the best of our potential."

On interception...
"I was supposed to be playing underneath technique on the receiver for that play. Coach put me in the right place at the right time, and we were able to capitalize on that opportunity."

Missouri Head Coach Gary Pinkel

On the game...
"Certainly, to say I'm proud of my football team and staff would be an understatement. Every time they play they battle, they prepare well and they focus at a high level. I'm very proud of them. Also I want to thank all Mizzou fans; they estimated about 8,000 Mizzou fans here. We get the SEC, and the fans get the SEC and the responsibility that goes with being an SEC fan. I am very thankful to them and happy for them that they get to come away with a win."

On the Ole Miss offense...
"They are a very potent offense, they throw the ball well. They have great players and they battled and did some great things in some critical situations."

On stopping the Ole Miss run game...
"We've had a pretty good run defense if you look at the conference stats; in conference games I think we are right there next to Alabama in run defense. We are pretty good there."

On James Franklin's return...
"I thought James did an outstanding job. The guy hadn't played in six weeks and had a lot of pressure on him to play well, because Maty (Mauk) had been playing well."

On the fake punt...
"I called that, it was my call and it worked, so it was a good call. I think we threw a pick on it and turned around and responded well. So the turnovers that did happen in the game, the defense made stops on both of them. I thought it was going to be a great momentum play and we were going to go down and score."

Missouri Players

#48, Andrew Wilson, LB
On Mizzou's defense...
"Our focus increases when we get in the red zone. All we need is a place to stand down there, and we can hold them every time."

On preparing for this game...
"We're just a focused team. Coach has been keeping us focused all week with a great game plan. The players knew what was at stake, what we had to do."

On preventing Ole Miss from making big plays...
"Coach just had a great game plan that we executed. It just worked out."

#47, Kony Ealy, DL
On tension between the teams...
"It's all about being out there, having fun. Teams are going to talk, but it's just football. I think it's a little bit more in the SEC. We're having fun, we're talking trash, but after the game it's `good game.' That's our approach to it."

On defense in the red zone...
"Just making a stand. That's about it, just digging down deep and making a stand for our offense to come back out and do their job."

#1, James Franklin, QB
On his first drive in the game...
"It definitely felt fresh out there, since I haven't been out there in a long time. It felt good to be back out there and playing again."

On Mizzou's quarterback rotation...
"It was really big. It was a big boost in the offense."

On closing out the game...
"That was really great. It showed that the offensive line worked together as a team. It created holes for the running backs, and they were making some good plays."
