Quotable: Swoopes developing faster than expected, Longhorns hoping to snap skid against Wildcats

Coming off a close win over Iowa State, Texas will head to Manhattan, Kansas, this weekend to take on Kansas State, who sits atop the Big 12 standings.

Here are some notable quotes from Monday’s press conference:

HC Charlie Strong

On the win: ”You have to enjoy the wins because you can’t ever not realize just how far our offense has come.”

On QB Tyrone Swoopes: “He’s still a work in progress. We added the quarterback runs, which has really helped him. He is so strong an physical. When he can become a dual threat like he is right now, it just adds another dimension for him.”

On fixing the defense: “It’s all about fundamentals, technique, alignment, gap integrity. That’s what upsets you because it’s things we’ve done so well. But what we did can be very comparable.”

On the Big 12 Conference: ”What’s great about this league is you get a chance to go play everybody. You can’t just look at this league and say there is a really dominating team.”
