Quotes from Head Coach Paul Hamilton:

On The Remainder of the Season:
"I think that it is something for us to shoot for being that we were picked to finish sixth in the league. There is lots of motivation for us to finish as high in the league as possible. There are many positives for us to finish strong and I think our team understands that."

On Georgia Southern
"As good as they are, they are a tremendous football program and right now it is the epitome of I-AA football. To be honest, they are playing like a division I team right now."

"They shot us down in the first half. Their defense does not get the credit that it deserves. We are going to have to do a better job offensively."

"Offensively, Georgia Southern spreads your defense out so thin that any of their offensive players can make a big play anytime they want."

On Wofford
"This game is a big conference game for us. Our league is so good from top to bottom, that we do not know how it is going to shape up."

"I look at where we are. We have played eight games, five on the road, at Georgia Southern and Colorado State included."

"We have to regroup. I was disappointed because I do not enjoy getting beat like that. We are getting ready to play another real good football team."

"They are a very good football team and they deserve serious playoff consideration."

"They are coached very well, have a good kicking game and and they as a team have gotten better year after year."

On Buccaneer Offense
"I am disappointed because we are not scoring as many points as I think we should. We had three possessions where we had some tendencies to hurt ourselves. I am definitely going to get that corrected for the next three games."
