Virginia vs. Richmond
Sept. 4, 2010
Richmond Player Quotes

Junior quarterback Aaron Corp
On strong start to the second half:
“We came out on the first drive of the second half and I thought it was a pretty good drive. We got three points out of it. After that, we just couldn’t seem to get a drive sustained consistently. I think that hurt us, and it hurt the defense because they were out there a long time.”

On fourth quarter interception by Cavalier Chase Minnifield:
“It was a momentum killer. When I let it go, I thought there was some contact, but obviously that’s not my call. Obviously, I was frustrated.”

Senior defensive lineman Martin Parker
On difficulty stopping the run:
“It was give-and-take all game. We came out there with a game plan to stop the run-sometimes we stopped it, sometimes we didn’t. We just have things to fix as a team as a whole. We can’t be sad about what happened out there today. We learn from what we do, and we come back in two weeks and face Elon.”

On Virginia’s physical offensive line:
“As a defensive lineman, you go into a game and you know your technique and you know how to play blocking schemes. We faced offensive lines as big as that in the ’08 national championship. Montana’s line was as big or bigger than Virginia. We’ll never use that as an excuse. That’s why we stay in Richmond the entire summer – to weightlift and to work out to be stronger and to be better.”

On fact that team’s last loss to Virginia came during its 2008 national championship season:
“We’ve just got to take it one game at a time. That year, we lost and we took it one game at a time, and we ended up winning the national championship game. Right now, we’re going to prepare for Elon and go out there and try to win that game.”
