HEAD COACH DEWAYNE WALKER

THOUGHTS ON LOUISIANA TECH

"This is not a 3-6 football team as far as I'm concerned.  This is a very good 3-6 team that can easily be 6-3.  Like every week, we'll have our hands full, but we're looking forward to the challenge."

THOUGHTS ON UTAH STATE GAME

"It's a game we should have won.  I'm still proud of our guys.  We were competitive.  You always try to come into a season to where you have high hopes, but I think with our football team, we have to continue to grow to be competitive and the wins will take care of themselves."

THOUGHTS ON KENNY TURNER

"He's probably going to be out this week.  He'll be a week-to-week case to see how his knee is.  Hopefully he'll be able to come back and finish off the season."

THOUGHTS ON RECRUITING

"Not to say we don't like the guys we have, but we need more depth.  We need to get the same guys that we're playing against every week. Really, we have to get more players on defense.  After two seasons, I know for me I have a clearer picture that the only way you're going to survive in this conference is that we have to get the same guys that the teams that are successful are playing with.  It's a little bit of a challenge for us because those other schools are winning and they probably have a little bit more of a winning tradition, but we can't really make excuses.  We have to go find the same guys."

TIGHT END KYLE NELSON

THOUGHTS ON UPCOMING GAME AGAINST LOUISIANA TECH

"They have a good defense.  Like Coach Walker said, they're not a 3-6 football team.  We have our work cut out for us."

THOUGHTS ON TEAM'S ATTITUDE AFTER UTAH STATE LOSS

"We're all coming together.  It was a tough loss last week.  Utah State is a great team, but this is a process and we all understand that.  We've made huge strides and huge improvements, but we're just not quite there yet, but we are getting there.  Coach is doing a great job and all the players are working hard.  We are really going to have fun these last three games."

DEFENSIVE END DONTE SAVAGE

THOUGHTS ON IMPROVEMENTS OVER THE LAST FEW GAMES

"We've made big strides as a team.  We've made a lot of mistakes, but that's what we have to go through to get better.  We're starting to come together more as a team and we're starting to play together and you can tell by looking at us last week, even though we lost." 

THOUGHTS ON PERSONAL IMPROVEMENT OVER THE SEASON

"It's all a learning experience.  As one of the older guys on the team, I think I'm still trying to find that niche I like.  I know I haven't been consistent all this year, but I'm still working on being a consistent player."

RUNNING BACK ROBERT CLAY

THOUGHTS ON UPCOMING GAME AGAINST LOUISIANA TECH

"I am expecting to see the ball a little bit this weekend.  Started preparing on Saturday when everyone started getting banged up.  I'm just in the film room trying to watch and prepare for the game."

THOUGHTS ON PLAYING ON SPECIAL TEAMS

"I love special teams.  It's fun to hit people out there.  I'm pretty sure I'll still be playing a lot on special teams and play some running back too this week.
