Quotable: Oregon State at Washington

Here's a collection of quotes on today's game between the Beavers and the Huskies:

Washington on Oregon State

"This is pretty rough, I'm not going to lie," sophomore tailback Brandon Johnson said. "But nobody is ever going to give up. We have to go on fighting or it will be worse, and this is a young team, so we're learning you can't be nonchalant. We have to show some type of emotion."

"We've got a lot of things to be angry about," offensive line coach Mike Denbrock said. "(Last year's incident) just adds to the list, I think, of things that should make sure these guys are nice and motivated to go out and play good football on Saturday.

"That's really what we're aiming for. I don't know if it's something you bring up or throw in their face or mention -- they're fully aware of what happened down at Oregon State last year. I don't have to remind them, they remind me."

"We just have to follow our head coach," quarterback Ronnie Fouch said. "He's putting the losses behind him and wants to succeed more than anybody, so we're just doing that."

"We need to be confident we can go out and make plays," Fouch said. "I've seen this offense do it in practice, fall camp and spring ball. This offense has made plays, and we need to go out and make plays and match (Oregon State's) speed and toughness."

"Every game we've got to treat (the opponent) as the No. 1 team in the country," OSU safety Al Afalava said. "We've just got to go out there and play our game."

"We have to anticipate their best," Riley said, in a familiar theme.

"You can't take a team lightly, no matter what the record is.I went through a season (in high school) with one or two wins. When you're on that side with no wins, you really want to win so you're going to growl it out, and I'm pretty sure that's what they're going to do." --Jacquizz Rodgers
