Quotables: Kevin Prince

On how his shoulder feels:
“Pretty good, still the same deal, dealing with a little pain. Just trying to work through it, now. It’s getting to the point where I’m trying to see what I can do and what still bothers it. I was able to throw more today; throwing on the run, throwing across my body is a little tougher.”

On re-entering the game against USC:
“The decision to go back in, I regret because I went in there and hurt the team. I don’t regret it in the sense of what it did to me. I don’t think it made it worse.”

On how his entire body feels:
“This is the best I’ve felt at the end any season. Usually, I’m kind of burnt out by the end of the year. In my past experiences, I’ve kind of been over it and ready to move on to the next season. This season has been a challenge for us, we’ve dealt with some adversity – with me and the injuries, I’ve dealt with some adversity – but my body feels great, and I’m ready to keep going.”

    That was a bad choice on your part to go back into the game with a hurt arm. Your subsequent interception was the turning point in the game and indirectly cost UCLA the last t/d too, because UCLA would still have been in the game.

    Mark,

    Hindsight is 20/20. Give Prince a little credit for:

    1. Having the Stones to try and gut it out; and
    2. Admitting that it was a mistake.

    I never fault a player for trying to gut it out to help the team. He is only a Freshman. He will learn from that mistake and it will make him a better player in the long run.

    Kevin, thanks for a great effort this season. (But keep your mouthpiece in and slide feet first next season, OK?)

    Prince is the Bruins’ best QB, but to win that game with this year’s weak offense, there was no margin for error. plus if the defense knows the QB has a bum arm and can’t throw vertical, not even Norm Chow can fool them.

    hopefully the entire team improves their judgement in the next ten days. however, ditching practice is not a good indicator

    If things don’t work out at QB for Prince, he should be a wedge breaker on special teams.
