Head Coach Sonny Dykes
"I felt like today’s game was very competitive. Defensively, I like the way we flew around. The offense is getting better. If you go back and look from our first scrimmage to today, we made a tremendous improvement. We are working and competing at a higher level."
"The thing I was really happy about offensively was that we only made one turnover today. We did a much better job taking care of the football. We have to continue to develop a little more continuity, offensively."
"This summer for us is going to be a very critical time. It will give our quarterbacks and receivers a chance to improve."
"I feel really good about where we stand defensively. Several guys stood out today, like Solomon Randle who was very active. Our middle linebacker position between Solomon Randle and Adrien Cole is a strength of our defense. Both of those guys are pretty good. Tank Calais is as consistent as a defensive player that we have right now. He is playing really well at that nickel position and that is the perfect position for him to play. It gives him a lot of freedom to make some plays."
"Offensively, I felt like the quarterbacks held onto the ball too much and we took seven sacks today. We threw the ball 68 times but that is still too many sacks. We have to do a better job of getting rid of the football but that’s something we will work on."
"Overall, I felt like it was a good day. It was very competitive and I thought they did a lot of good things today. We competed at a high level. For us, to come out of a practice healthy is critical and we did that today in a scrimmage situation. Our team has really practiced well together."
"I don’t think we’re a finished product by any stretch of the imagination; we have a long way to go. However, I think we’re improving day in and day out. It is a constant struggle."

"It’s been a while since I played. Just getting out there, I was so excited I had to find some way to calm myself down. I was just excited to be able to be out there and playing." On the coaches’ confidence in him: "It feels good that they have confidence in me and they aren’t holding my legs against me. It makes me feel good that they are going to be looking for me and to be able to come to me [to make a play]."
