Three for Three with Reggie Carter: Pt. 1

On Kevin Prince’s injury:
“It hurt my feelings. It really hurt my feelings. I asked him if I could play still. He said, no they had to wire his mouth shut. I said just don’t get hit. I told him we’d hold it down for him until he got back.”

On the defensive performance:
“We played a tough and strong game, but had a few mental errors. It’s still game two and there’s room to get better. But 208 yards of total offense you can’t be too mad. After watching Tennessee’s first game and they had 380 yards rushing, for us to hold them to 208 total yards in Tennessee, in front of 102,000 people, it was great.”

On defensive coordinator Chuck Bullough’s game plan:
It was big. He had us watching tape and schemed them up great. He was confident that they would stick to their game plan. Everybody did their job. They kind of came out and gave us what we expected, and we played to it.

    HONORARY GAME CAPTAIN — Wide receiver Mike Sherrard (1982-85), a member of three Rose Bowl-winning Bruin teams, will serve as Saturday’s honorary captain. Sherrard came to UCLA as a walk-on athlete and went on to earn All-America honors and rank among UCLA’s all-time receiving leaders. He caught 128 balls (seventh on the all-time school list) in his career for 1,965 yards (10th on the school list) and scored 10 touchdowns. Sherrard went on the play in the NFL from 1986-96 for Dallas, San Francisco, New York Giants and Denver. He was a member of the 1990 Forty-Niner Super Bowl squad.

    HE WAS A GREAT ONE FOR US! 3 Rose Bowl games. Wow. We need to find a way to get back to the Rose Bowl.

    Reggie Carter is a funny dude. I sure hope RB can hang in there against KS.

    Thanks for all the updates, JG!
