Golden Nuggets: All the quotes heading into the Cal-Wazzu game

The Bears chat about the Cougs and the head Coug chats about the Bears.

Who's ready for pregame quotes? Tuesdays mean it's your time to get into the heads of our coaches and players (and the opponents') to figure out how they're feeling about this upcoming game.

But first, the team revisited a sore subject from the Colorado games: penalties.

Moving past those penalties and things that are out of the teams' hands, let's check in with the defense and S Michael Lowe.

Speaking of the secondary, the Bears discussed losing Stefan McClure and the rise of Griffin Piatt.

But what about the linebackers, like Jalen Jefferson, Hardy Nickerson, and Jake Kearney?

But there was no shortage of praise for RB Daniel Lasco.

The run game isn't the only part of the offense that's looking pretty, as the passing game is working like a fine-tuned machine.

One particular receiver having a big year is Kenny Lawler (@K_Law2nice).

This all results in a pretty powerful offense, as discussed by OL Chris Borrayo (@ckb510).

In terms of production, that progression seems a little more than gradual, coach.

But let's return to Borrayo and get some insight into how big of a leader he was last year, as a true freshman who wasn't even supposed to be a starter.

Borrayo also transitioned to looking ahead to the WSU game.

Even though Leach is known for his pass-heavy attack, are the Bears relying on that certainty to just focus on the pass? They might not, after being tricked by Arizona...

WSU Coach Mike Leach took some time away from rambling about who-knows-what to give his thoughts on the Bears in anticipation of our match-up.

But the good news is that we're still flying around out there.
