Brown's Monday morning media comments

Mack Brown joined the weekly Big 12 teleconference Monday morning. Here are a few of his comments:

On Fozzy Whittaker being lost for the season:

“He is a great young man. He is the heart of our offense. He is the team leader. He is one of the most positive and upbeat young men that I have ever been around. We had adversity especially on offense Saturday and we didn’t play up to it.”

On Kansas State having Texas’ number:

“They’ve outcoached us and outplayed us. That’s pretty simple.”

On the turf at Faurot Field:

``I would rather not comment on that. I just hate that the two young men got hurt.’’

On if there is any extra satisfaction in beating a team that has had your number:

“We just need a win, even if it was a pee wee team. We take special satisfaction in winning any game.”

On playing better on offense:

“When you have the adversity we had you’ve got to step up and we didn’t. We’ve got to coach better and we’ve got to play better and we didn’t do either one.”

On Collin Klein

“He is an amazing player. He has just taken the team on his back. He has got the third rushing attempts in college football this year. He just keeps finding ways to win. Texas fans appreciate great players and they will enjoy watching Collin this weekend.”

On Kansas State’s style:

“They’re basic with their plays but they’ve got a lot of imagination. They’re going to line up and hit you in the mouth for four hours.”
