BYU Coach Dave Rose:
"I think for the most part it was exactly what our staff wanted to get out of tonight. We have a lot of new players, and we wanted to simulate a real game situation."
"We saw a lot of good things out there that tend to make us think we are on the right track. It was a really competitive game."
"One of the reasons new guys come to a program, particularly junior college guys, is that they see an opportunity. I like the attitude of our new guys."
"I honestly believe fans will come out and see a team who plays hard and is successful. I think if this team plays to their potential, they'll be a fun team to watch."
