What they said:
“I went down and told him he was about to be the MVP and take us down and score. And I believed that, and I think that came true. That’s just the way things were tonight. We had some opportunities that we just didn’t take care of. But we’ve seen Fredi do that a lot and move it around and make some plays with his heart and his feet. And that’s what he did.”
“The blocked kick -- what a true professional man Steve Caldwell is. We told him on the sideline we were going to block it, and I really meant it. Did everybody on the defensive line get their hands on it? I think it was smothered.
– John Thompson.
“We all knew that we had 1:33 left, and we knew that the seniors need this more than anything. So we had to suck it up and we did that.
“It was awesome. I knew my teammates were behind me, and with two minutes left, they had faith in me. I just wanted to do it for them, and I’m just happy that God blessed me with the ability to do it.”
_ Fredi Knighten
The drive that we gave up what ended up being the winning score, it was four verticals. We ran a pretty good coverage to cover it. We just didn’t get our safety over the top so that was a big, explosive play that they got on that drive. The touchdown was a pump fake, which our corner bit on a little bit and our safety didn’t get over the top of the corner route so that was disappointing execution on that.
On the field goal operation, obviously we were well within range, it felt like even without the personal foul, that we would have had a shot with that really heavy wind at our back. Scott has a pretty strong leg as you saw earlier in the game. I would like to see the film on the field goal. It looked to me like the operation was okay. Obviously they were in an all out block. It looked like there might have been some penetration, but I also think the kick was probably a little low. So we’ll have to take a look at that. You guys probably saw the replay upstairs so you have a better idea that I do right now.
