Five Best Quotes from the Oklahoma State-Pittsburgh Game



Oklahoma State hammered Pitt on Saturday at Heinz Field, and players and coaches spoke about it after the game, including Mike Gundy who seemed extraordinarily pleased with his squad’s performance. Here are the five best quotes I found from Saturday’s game.

Pitt Coach Pat Narduzzi on OSU

“That’s about the worst day you can have at the office. As I said to Coach Gundy after the game, ‘you certainly have a top-10 team.’ That’s a good football team. That’s a top-five football team for sure. We’re obviously disappointed in the performance. Our kids are disappointed. We had trouble covering them on defense. We had trouble getting first downs on offense.”

Pitt Cornerback Avonte Maddox on OSU’s offense

“That’s an explosive team—explosive quarterback, explosive receivers, explosive back. Coming into the game, we knew what they were going to do but they executed and we didn’t. We were on the bottom half of that so next week we’re looking to get better. They came with the tempo, which we expected. They came with the deep ball shots, which we expected. We just have to make plays. They executed and we didn’t.”

OSU Head Coach Mike Gundy on the day

“Obviously we had a good game today. Our players were really focused and they did a really nice job in preparation. As a coach that’s so gratifying. To see guys get ready to play a game, prepare and execute. Obviously we were very explosive on offense. Defensively we stopped the run. Pitt wants to run the ball and control the clock – we stopped the run.”

Mike Gundy on Mason Rudolph

“Mason [Rudolph] has done a nice job of spreading the ball out. When we have good skill guys, he’s responsible for delegating the ball to the people based on what they give us. And he did a job for us, except for one time and it cost him an interception. And that’s why we spread them out and got multiple guys catches. We saw some heavy roll in the play towards James Washington, and when that happens we have [Jalen] McCleskey in the middle of the field most of the time.”

Justice Hill on the OSU offense right now

“It’s crazy. It’s really fun. Just being out there with your teammates, you don’t have to do much besides your job. And then you look up, and you see James [Washington, Jr.] and Marcell [Ateman] and somebody else are out there running a touchdown. If I’m not doing something or running the ball, then J.D. is out there running the ball, it’s just fun.”
