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.

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:

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.

HEAD COACH NICK SABAN

Opening Statement:

“We’re really happy to be here. The Cotton Bowl people have been wonderful. It’s been great hospitality for everyone. The function we have gone to this point (and) the organization at the hotel have been outstanding for our players. I think this is a great venue to be involved in for our team. I know they are looking forward to it. To be able to play a dynasty-type program that has so much tradition like Texas that is also something that makes this opportunity special for us.

TEXAS HEAD COACH MACK BROWN

Did all of the student-athletes arrive on time?

“Yes they did, Chris Simms sat on the runway in New York for two and half hours, which we were really concerned about him. We were concerned about some of the west-Texas kids but I think the snow was up more near Amarillo and it didn’t get down to Lubbock as much so all of our guys were able to get in. A couple of guys were a little bit late but everyone made our 10 o’clock meeting last night.
