Opening Statement
No question it was a battle - we did not anticipate the game to be anything but that. This was the second time in three weeks that we played the No. 4 team in the country and the other half of last season's national championship, so we knew coming in that we had our hands full. With it being 7-7 at the half, I felt pretty good about things. In the third quarter, I thought we were getting our momentum a little bit on offense. The turnover really hurt us especially in the field position.

On Defensive Effort
We did a good job whenever they kept their offensive sets open by placing pressure on them. Obviously Riccio made two big plays - one of which was to Boller who only had two catches today and is a premier receiver in our league. Last season Boller had 10 catches for over 100 yards. We were in a nail-bitter today and you can't make mistakes in those games. Today we were the ones who made the mistakes out there.

On Team's Youth
It was evident out there today that our guys were playing hard and competing hard. Delaware's experience came through down the stretch. There were some things happening today which you get excited about: Bryan Smith gave us a bit of a spark and Brandon London had his best day.
