What to say?

UCLA’s offensive players were asked what they say to the defense after the season they’ve had, culminating with the disastrous Arizona State loss.
“There’s really nothing you can say to the defense,” receiver Terrence Austin said. “You just have to keep telling the defense that we’re going to try and hold out part and for them to keep doing what they’re doing. We’ve got to keep telling the offense to keep doing what they’re doing and not to get down because of what we’re doing on the other side.”

The other side

UCLA’s loss was stunning on many levels, but Arizona State coach Dennis Erickson may have summed up the Bruins’ offense the best in talking about the Sun Devils’ four defensive touchdowns.
“I’ve never seen anything like it in my many years of coaching,” Erickson said. “I’ve never seen four defensive touchdowns scored on a defense and such total control of the game. It’s unbelievable.”
It was not as if Erickson was shocked his defense held UCLA in check, though.
“Obviously, UCLA hasn’t moved the ball up and down the field on anybody,” he said. “But to do that, it was a special night.”

More disbelief

UCLA coach Rick Neuheisel said the Bruins’ defense played “valiantly” after it allowed 122 total yards in the loss to Arizona State.
“They kept Arizona State’s offense in check, and really were terrific,” Neuheisel said.”I don’t know if I’ve been around a game where the four touchdowns scored by the opponent were all off turnovers.”
