Player Quotes After Georgia Tops UK

Here are some player quotes after the game.

#13, Jalen Whitlow, QB

On playing with a migraine ...
"I have been getting these since I was a little boy, so I just had to wait for the visual part to pass. When you get a migraine it kind of blocks your vision. I could not see that much out of my right eye, so I had to wait and let that pass."

On how they played as a team ...
"I think that we played pretty good. We fought for each other, and we fought hard. It is always disappointing when you do not come out on top. I think we took a step forward. We fought for each other; we did not make many mistakes, and played for each other and the coaches. We played to win, but unfortunately we lost, but we can put this in our pocket and move on."

On the speed of the game ...
"I felt more comfortable out there. I just relaxed. I told myself before the game to go out and play football, play the game that I have been playing since I was a little boy, and just go out and play."

#25, Jonathon George, TB

On the running game...
"We had a game plan, and it was to come out and be aggressive in the running game. That is what we tried to do, and I thought we were successful at that."

On power running...
"This whole week of practice we stressed that one of the major plans would be to be successful in the running game. The coaches emphasized to us that we have to come out and run the ball to have a chance to win this game. We all had the mindset to come out aggressive."

On the loss after a well played game...
"It is a little stressful, and we had positive flashes in the game. We just have to build from it and finish the rest of the season."

#69, Matt Smith, C

On what he learned form last week and this week ...
"The way we played today is something I knew we had in us the whole time, something that hasn't shown yet, its amazing what we can do when we keep the injuries away for a whole week and we get to practice with the same guys we had the week before. I'm really proud of this team, they fought really hard"

On the Commonwealth Stadium fans ...
"It makes a huge difference for us. We hope that those fans keep coming out and we hope that we get some of those back. We're just trying to keep the fans around."

On being proud of the team ...
"We've made a lot of progress, especially compared to these last couple of weeks that we've just been able to finally put for quarters together, something that a lot of us have seen in practice an know that we can do and we were finally able to do it."

#12, Morgan Newton, QB

On general thoughts on the game ...
"Guys fought hard, coaches fought hard. Everybody worked really hard, we just came up short.

On the importance on the early start...
"It's really important, and everybody did a good job, and really fighting in the beginning and for the most part throughout the game. So that was important to get us going."

On his contribution to the game...
"I just tried to help in the red zone. The offensive line did a great job on protecting; the receivers did a good job catching the ball, making the play. Just try to help out when I have the opportunity."

#16, Cody Quinn, CB

On the teams performance tonight ...
"We had a lot of mistakes, but we played really though and I thought we would come out with the win."

On the experience from playing in the SEC ...
"Its great but, I'm kind of over that now, I'm ready to win, we are getting closer, it's the little things we got to bring along."

On improving by playing in the SEC ...
"I'm learning more, I didn't play well today, I made too many mistakes. I just got to keep playing and keep improving and have a better week of practice this week, last week we had a great week of practice. The intensity was high and people were competing, and it showed today, we just came up a bit short."
