On The Quarterback Rotation on Saturday

"We will stay with the same rotation for Saturday; we will start with Jordan [Webb]. Jordan had some opportunities early; we missed one with a drop which would have helped us. But I thought he did a good job of coming back, he forced that one and obviously that turned into six for the other team. I thought he handled it well when he came out and was still supportive of his teammates.

Connor [Wood] came in and he did some good things too, he threw the ball around, had a couple of miscalls here and there but that is to be expected on your first time out there. You come out there and the scoreboard is not exactly lending itself to helping you, but I thought he did well and then he threw a ball late and that resulted in a bad play for us. But other than that, I thought they both played well. We are a team that needs to run the ball and we are trying to do some things.

When you go down 28-0 like that, you have to get away from it. And we are not a team, as you all know watching us; we can't just drop back and throw it. When the defense can come at you and drop exotic blitzes on you and do whatever because they are playing with 'House Money,' so to speak, and we are not equipped to play like that.

But I thought those guys handled it well, I thought they handled the situation and circumstances well."
