The mood was surprisingly positive following a rather sloppy Aggies victory today over winless Army. Here are a few postgame quotes from coach Mike Sherman:
On the win"This was a tremendous atmosphere. The fans were great. I've got to say that I thought Army played well. They gave us everything we could handle and more."
On Jorvorskie Lane's increased work load in the game:
"We planned going into the ball game that he was going to be our short-yardage back and just asked him to get his pads down. When he gets his pads down, he can run with anybody. I thought he did a good job. He had some running lanes and he made some extra yardage on his own, as you could see. I was pleased with his effort."
On freshman safety Trent Hunter's 17 tackles in his first start:
We placed a lot on him. The safety generates a lot of tackles for us, as he did. And he's just a fired-up kid. He brings a lot of juice to the defense and plays downhill and with passion. I'm not surprised he played the way he played. That's how he practiced all week long."
On Stephen McGee's injury
"McGee injured his shoulder exactly how he injured it the last time. He landed right on it again. He felt pretty good on Friday though he never really cut it loose in practice. And then in pregame I thought he looked OK but not 100 percent. He was probably about 95 percent."
