Week 10 of the Big 12 football season is in the books in what was the most-anticipated week of the Big 12 season thus far. There were great match ups in every time slot on Saturday, and more the most part, the games lived up to the hype, and then some. With a five-way tie atop the league standings coming into the day, there was going to be some shake ups in the standings by the end of the day, and that’s exactly what we saw.
But like every week, there are winners and losers, and depending on which side of that you’re on, the questions from media can be drastically different. So with that being said, here are the most important quotes from each Big 12 football coach in Week 10.
Big 12 Coaches Top Quotes After Week 10
Dave Aranda, Baylor: “I try not to get caught up in the emotion and focus on the facts and what we can do to get better. We try to use it for improvement. I’d like to say that we’ve turned the corner on it, but apparently not.”
Kalani Sitaki, BYU: “The competition [for starting quarterback] will still happen… We’ll play the best guy. And if someone’s injury and they can play a high-level, that’s what we’ll go with. If not, we’ll play the healthy guy.”
Scott Satterfield, Cincinnati: “It pointed to a very undisciplined football team and that pisses me off. We’ve been that way and that’s on me and we’re gonna get that fixed.”
Matt Campbell, Iowa State: “They said, ‘He stepped out,’ is what he said to me [on Jaylin Noel stepping out of bounds on his big kick return]. I don’t know if that was the case. It certainly didn’t look like it, but I would think that they would review it. They reviewed everything else.”
Lance Leipold, Kansas: “It’s our first back-to-back conference wins since 2008. This team keeps chipping away and knocking down barriers and doing things that haven’t been done in our program for a long time. I can’t tell you how proud I am of them.”
Chris Klieman, Kansas State: “If I had it all over again I would do it [go for a touchdown in overtime] again. We had to end that game when we had the chance.”
Brent Venables, Oklahoma: “I thought that’s what [pass] interference was.”
Mike Gundy, Oklahoma State: “It [Bedlam] won’t happen again in the regular season.”
Sonny Dykes, TCU: “We’re one week at at time. We just need to have a good practice and get tougher.”
Joey McGuire, Texas Tech: “So two things we did, we didn’t turn the ball over and we caused turnovers. You know, if you do those two things, you got a great opportunity. It puts us in great situations.”
Steve Sarkisian, Texas: “This is a championship caliber team.”
Neal Brown, West Virginia: “We’re alive and well in the conference race and that’s what we’re talking about. We’re on a quest to play our best and I felt like tonight was the most complete game we’ve played.”
Gus Malzahn, UCF: “I’m real proud of our team. That locker room, it feels real good to see smiling faces… I’m real proud of the way our guys won the game.”
