Golden Nuggets: Because You Have to Find Something to Smile about from Yesterday




After the jump we have quotes/reactions to the game from players, coaches, and various media figures.  Tomorrow I'll have highlights from the rest of the weekend in Cal sports.

Post-game quotes:


On the team's mentality following today's game
"I have confidence in these guys. I don't know what is going to happen against UCLA. All I know is that I have a lot of confidence that we will prepare and we'll have good attitudes. There is a lot of football left to be played. There is no way in the world that we are folding our tent. I don't believe that about this team. We'll have a great bye week, we'll get healthy and we'll bounce back.

On Cal's opening drive turnover
"I don't think any air came out of the balloon. I don't think the guys ever quit or gave up. It was never a lack of effort."

On whether USC was that much better than Cal
"They are that much better than us if we don't execute, and we don't throw and catch the football and protect the pass and those types of things. You have to make plays. You can't turn the football over against them. If they don't turn the football over, they're a tough team to beat."

Brett Johnson:

On not letting the season slip away like in 2007
"There's always that concern, but we don't have the same guys from the '07 team. The '07 team had a lot of different guys with different mentalities. This team has a lot of guys with better personalities and guys that won't let this drag them down."
