UConn Interim Head Coach T.J. Weist
On Season-High Five Turnovers -
"You can't have it, especially against this team. The only chance we have is to not beat ourselves. We turned the ball over, gave them early points on the punt and gave them momentum on offense and defense, we didn't have a chance. It's a simple as that. Our offense has not been productive, it has not been efficient and you give them any kind of momentum, you just can't recover."
On Defensive Play -
"No question, our defense played well tonight. When you don't drive the football and keep putting the defense out there, sooner or later their going to break. No defense can handle that. I thought we were consistent and kept stopping that offense. They did their best and I'm proud of them."
On Louisville Adjustments Stopping UConn Running Game -
"They just brought pressure. We tried to mix it up, inside and outside and they just made the adjustment. We tried to run and they just brought inside pressure on us. They called a better game than us."
Addressing the Locker Room Post Game -
"First thing I told them was I was proud of them. And we are as a staff because they gave the effort, they never quit throughout tonight and that's what we look for. It's the same things, nothing changes in football. You have to make football, keep momentum when you have it. We have to play again next week and we have to just keep pushing."
