UT Head Coaches News Conference

Monday, December 30th, 2002
Opening statement: “Being back in Dallas is really exciting for us because so many of our players’ families can come watch us practice. All of the high school coaches have been able to come out, and we’ve been able to see them over the holidays. É It would be a great week if you didn’t have to play a game. Those games get in the way. É When you look at what SBC has done in helping the Cotton Bowl, it’s really special. É It looks like it’s going to be another sellout, and we’re going to have good weather, which is always important on New Year’s Day in Dallas.

LSU Head Coaches News Conference

Monday, December 30th, 2002
Opening statement:
“The first thing I’d like to comment about is the Cotton Bowl has done just a marvelous job of the hospitality and making our fans at LSU, our players at LSU and our LSU family feeling very welcome here. I think the city of Dallas has done the same thing. We’ve had a fantastic time here and our players really appreciate that, our staff does and I most certainly do.
“The people at Texas Stadium, the facility that we’ve used, have done everything they possibly could to satisfy our every need and we certainly appreciate that.

Texas Longhorns Offensive News Conference

Sunday, December 29th, 2002
TEXAS OFFENSIVE COORDINATOR GREG DAVIS

An overall assessment of the LSU defense:

“When I first started watching LSU, the first thing I thought was very athletic. That’s the first thing that you see. Big up front, very strong guys up front. And then the linebackers are a very athletic group of linebackers, led by the (Bradie) James Gang. Just all over the field. Very bright player, obviously a very bright student too from what I read. Their secondary is very aggressive, not afraid to play man-to-man, will bump some, will change it up.

DEFENSIVE COORDINATOR WILL MUSCHAMP

Opening statement:

“We had a good week of preparation in Baton Rouge; (was) really pleased with the approach of our kids and the focus of our kids on Texas. They obviously have an outstanding football team. They’re very powerful and high potent offensively. They’ve got outstanding athletes. We’re real pleased with our preparations thus far and since we’ve been in Dallas. The kids have really approached the game the right wayÑ a good mental attitude and focus for what we want to do and try to accomplish in this football game.

OFFENSIVE COORDINATOR JIMBO FISHER

On Texas’ speed on defense:

“I don’t know if you can beat it, but you’ve got to learn to maybe trick it. They’re a very athletic team. They have great speed not only in the secondary but the linebackers and the front guys. (Corey) Redding comes off the edge; he can bring it. The linebackers can run. They’re a man coverage team. (Texas defensive coordinator) Carl (Reese) knows they have great athletes. He’s maximizing their athletic ability by playing the man coverage.

TEXAS DEFENSIVE COORDINATOR CARL REESE:

Saturday, December 28th, 2002
On recent games:

“The head coach, Mack Brown, reminds me every day of what our defensive performances were the last two times we were out (previous two bowl games). We got involved in shootouts, and shootouts are not a good thing. Shootout is a term as a defensive coach we don’t want to hear about. É That’s what we got into. We won one of them and we lost the year before. Shutouts are what a defensive coach is after.”

On having previously coached at LSU:

“It’s always good to have been somewhere and know the tradition.
