Virginia vs. Florida State
Oct. 2, 2010
Virginia Head Coach Mike London

On the loss:
“I’m disappointed for our players. I’m disappointed for the fans. That wasn’t the type of effort that is indicative to the type of team that I think we have here.”

On Florida State:
“Florida State did a great job. I said all along that they are a fast, very athletic team. I think that is a top-20 team right there. That’s a very, very good team. Their quarterback is good. Their defensive front four did a good job today. “

On moving forward:
“We’ll go back and look at the tape to see what we need to do better. It’s game four. It’s easy to get discouraged and throw players and coaches under the bus but we’re not going to do that. It’s early in the season for us. We’re going to continue to work. I’m going to coach those guys up. We’ve got a long way to go.”

On Florida State’s rushing game:
“We played pretty good rush defense but a couple missed tackles added to the accumulation of their yardage. We need to take care of that.”

On Virginia’s second-half performance:
“In the second half we drove the ball. We were able to score and get on the board and the defense kind of responded a little bit but that was a good football team that we played. They will win a lot of games.”

On giving up sacks:
“That’s the number one team in the country in sacks and we added to their stats today. Tremendous effort by their defensive ends to speed rush and get on the edge. We have to look at how we are going to protect the quarterback and how we’re going to do things in order for him to get the ball down the field.”
