Post-Game Quotes

Stanford Head Coach Buddy Teevens:

On the game:
'We played very poorly in the first half offensively. Nothing worked for us. Defensively, we did a decent job. I challenged the guys at the half and offensively, we made drastic adjustments. We played better in the second half, and guys competed. I point to the seniors and the way that they responded. We made it a ball game and unfortunately we came up short in the end. '

On the play of quarterback T.C. Ostrander:
'I thought he played well for a young guy. He protected the ball pretty well and only had one turnover at the end. He made some good decisions and there were definitely things that he can learn from. He was a competitor and didn't shy away from anything despite taking a couple of whacks. He made some very fine throws and gave us a chance to win the game.'

On problems running the ball:
'Oregon State defended the run very well. We tried it a number of times in the first half without success. The yardage was not sufficient, so we kind of abandoned it in the second half and threw the ball more.'

Flanker Evan Moore:

On the game:
'This was our seniors last game at Stanford Stadium and we wanted to send them away with something to be proud of. We fought in the second half and just weren't able to give them that win.'

Quarterback T.C. Ostrander:

On the game:
'It was an up and down first half. We didn't do things offensively that we needed to do and put ourselves in a hole. I was disappointed in my play because I feel that the guys were there and I didn't make the throws we needed.'

On starting the game:
'Coach Teevens told me that I was going to start on Wednesday, but that didn't change anything preparation wise. We're all prepared to play every week, and I was prepared today. They threw a couple of different things at us, but the loss wasn't because of a lack of preparation.'

On second half:
'In the second half we made some adjustments. I got back there and started slinging it down field. That opened some things up for us. We noticed what they were doing defensively and tried to take advantage of that. All of the receivers stepped up in the second half and made plays for us.'
