Chattanooga at The Citadel
Johnson Hagood Stadium - Charleston, S.C.
Saturday - Sept. 29, 2012
Head Coach Russ Huesman
"Great win. I told the team in the locker room that I have never been prouder of a football team and a coaching staff than I was tonight. We were a 1-3 team coming in here and we could have folded up. They came to play and they played really hard. "
On the play of the defense:
"Anytime you hold The Citadel to 10 points...they scored 52 at App. We made some mistakes on defense, but I thought our kids just kept battling. Our kids rose to the occasion. They had a big fourth down stop, forced a turnover and I thought they were just unbelievable."
On the offense:
"We had 413 yards and they are well-coached. The Citadel is well coached on both sides of the ball and we had 413. I thought (Offensive Coordinator Marcus Satterfield) Satt and the offensive coaches did a great job."
On the play of the play of the quarterbacks:
"I thought it worked out pretty good. I don't know what they had, but the other guy I was proud of was Kenny Huitt (RB). Kenny Huitt is a ballplayer and J.J. (Jackson) always produces for us. I am proud of those guys and proud of the offense."
Freshman Jacob Huesman
Thoughts on the game:
"It feels amazing. We were low. We were really low after the App State loss. We could have easily could have threw in the towel, but we didn't do that. We came together and that was an unbelievable football game."
On playing in the two-quarterback system:
"This was really the first time we were in together on a consistent basis. Previously, it was one or two plays, but tonight it was fun. We were alternating back and forth and that is when we really got things going. I am proud of Terrell. He did a fantastic job today. He is the one who got us on a roll with the long pass to Ron Moore."
Junior Gunner Miller
On looking like they were ready for The Citadel's option:
"Chris Awuah did a great job running the scout team offense this week in practice. He gave the defense a great look and it really helped us."
