Vandy head coach Robbie Caldwell knows Saturday could be his last day: "If it is my last game, well, I'll be sad because I've enjoyed my time here at Vanderbilt. Hopefully it won't be. But if it is, I understand. It's the life of a football coach, unfortunately, this day and time."
Mike Locksley and New Mexico host TCU on Saturday: “I often use the analogy this week with our players: horse racing. You know those horses have odds on them, and when you open the gates on them, do you think the horse knows what the odds were? They don’t.”
North Texas defensive coordinator Gary DeLoach worried he could be out of a job: “I don't know if I can find a job. I am going to look around. I still have passion for the game. At my age it's tough. It's a young man game, and I realize that. You look around the country and there are not a lot of 57-year-old assistants."
Bud Foster not happy with VA Tech run defense: "Stop the run and make the opposing offense one-dimensional. That's always been the first goal of our defense.''
"We talked about it this morning. That's one thing we've taken great pride in. What we've done over 15 years a lot of people would like to do in one year. And I don't want our kids to lose sight of that. We don't want a team to feel like they can have success running the football on us because that's the last thing you want them to be able to do.''
"Part of it is the other team; part of it is us, getting lined up, being more forceful in our run game and our run fits in our perimeter. That's where we kind of been hurt as much as anything.”
