Missouri State Player Postgame Quotes
Nov. 12, 2011
Shakir Bell's a great athlete. He's not very big, but he knows how to make people miss. He did his thing today and was very successful. Our goal was to stop him and hopefully have success. We didn't get it done today.
Mother Nature's going to be there. That's no excuse. We've got to be able to play with the wind. Our game plan can't change so drastically because of it. We still had several opportunities offensively to capitalize. We didn't help our defense out and came up short. The completion percentage has to be better than it was today.
Like I said earlier this week, it was bittersweet. We were trying to get the win, but it didn't turn out the way we wanted it to. I put that on the offense because the defense played a great game. Shakir Bell's a great running back and the defense stopped him so many times and gave us opportunities to get into the end zone. We just didn't turn those turnovers into points.
