Chattanooga at Western Carolina
Whitmire Stadium - Cullowhee, N.C.
Saturday - Nov. 3, 2012
Head Coach Russ Huesman
On the talk in the locker room at halftime:
"I don't know if it was a great halftime speech. You might want to ask them what I said. I don't think I can repeat it out here. They were told where they were and what they were doing in a pretty stern way, especially the defense. I got after them worse than I have ever gotten after them. I don't think that made a difference to be honest with you. I really don't think that. They just had to decide to play."
On the offense, throwing in the first half and running in the second half:
"In the first half, we were moving the ball. We had an 80-yard drive...I thought our offense played pretty well in the first half. I did not get on them in the first half, I was on the defense. The second half we played really well."
On the play of the offense in the second half:
"You have to give credit to the offensive line. They came off the ball. There was no penetration. We got some big first downs and some nice runs by our backs."
On not blowing the opportunity to be tied for the SoCon lead:
"To have that opportunity or not, I was just glad that we came out and played better in the second half. Give Western some credit. They made some plays."
