On the Chippewas' performance...
Central Michigan Head Coach Dan Enos
"Obviously the game didn't go the way we wanted. Obviously they're a very good football team. I think early in the game we had chances to keep the game closer and we didn't make the plays. In the first half there were plays that we missed on that could have kept the game closer going into the third quarter."
"They capitalized on their opportunities and we were unable to do that, and when you play good teams it's difficult. We were minus three in the turnover margin. We got one at the end, but even with that we gave it up three times, and we can't do that against good football teams."
"We had zero penalties again for the second week in a row, but moving forward we have to eliminate those turnovers."
"We wanted to use the play action game to get matchups and to keep them off balance a little bit. We thought last year we had some opportunities where we had open receivers so we wanted to come back and do some of the same things."
"A couple times today we moved the ball well, especially against that defense. i think we established that if we can run the ball a little bit against these guys we should be able to run the ball against the teams in our league and be consistent with that. At the end of the day we're going to have a very good offensive football team."
