No griping. No complaining. No one asking, 'Why me?'.
The more you look at them on film, the better they get, ... I had them shut out about five months ago. Then about three months ago, they scored twice on us. About two weeks ago, they got 21 on us. It's coming harder and harder to stop them. I told [defensive line coach] Vantz [Singletary], 'We've got to get the third light [on the scoreboard] in case they hit a hundred.'.
We've got to get the third light (on the scoreboard) in case they hit a hundred.
[Glanville said he faced similar long odds 15 years ago, when he was the Atlanta Falcons' head coach.] We were a 17-point underdog (against Houston), ... For pro football, that's huge.
Being an underdog by one point or 50, it doesn't matter. I'm glad we are an underdog. Underdogs have more that they can achieve. They have more enjoyment if they're able to climb to the mountain top.
Pro wise, ... you thrive on it. I told the team, 'I hope they all stand and boo. If they boo us, that means you've accomplished something.' In the pros, our teams fed off the animosity of the crowd to make you play better. That was the fun of playing on the road. We actually played better.
we're going to have to bring all five stones. We can't stop them with just one stone.
[Hawaii nose tackle Reagan Mauia was flagged for two major penalties on successive plays in the fourth quarter at Michigan State, one for a late hit on Stanton. Defensive coordinator Jerry Glanville was not pleased.] I said the next time he gets that penalty he should go immediately to the admissions office and get his transcripts so he can transfer, ... We won't have that.
When you're 17 years old, you're just thinking about girls.
We deserve no credit as coaches. We didn't have anything to do with it. I promise you it was all the players. We were just watching.
We'd been a frustrated team.
I always built the defense around outside linebackers that could pressure the passer.
I don't know the guy and I don't think I've ever had a conversation with him. But I know he's a great coach. The film is his resume. He has a great resume.
The year never bothered us. Sometimes if you're a senior, all your experiences have been bad. You're better off having no experience.
That (jersey number) 45 (Moe) is unbelievable. I can take 10 scholarships and not come back with a 45. I could come back with 10 guys and nobody would play like 45. That's unbelievable. That speaks volumes for people on the island.
'I had 150 days to prepare for them. What worked? Not much.
[But Patton did not compete in contact drills this week.] He shows no sign of life at this time, ... I've seen no signs that the body is alive. I see no signs of (Patton) being able to go.
Our defense is only as good as the nose plays. If the nose doesn't play any good, the defense isn't any good.
We were a 17-point underdog (against Houston). For pro football, that's huge.
I couldn't believe it when I learned some of the guys were walk-ons.
For some reason, they didn't ask me back. I guess my invitation is lost in the mail.
Mouse tried to pick up my bag, but he had a hard time, it was so heavy. He said, 'I know what's in there. Film.' I probably do a minimum of 4 hours of film every day. I look at prospects for 2007 every day.
