first_imgOklahoma State drubbed South Alabama on Friday evening, and there wasn’t much to say afterwards other than, “Yep, that’s how it should go.” Still, players and coaches talked, and we rounded up some of the best quotes we saw from Friday evening.S. Alabama Coach Joey Jones“We were just out executed.  [Oklahoma State’s] quarterback [Mason Rudolph] was tremendous; I thought they threw the ball really well and made plays when they had to. He’s pretty good; a NFL proto-typical quarterback being 6-5.  He throws the ball extremely well and has good presence in the pocket.  He also has some good receivers to throw to.  He’s going to be dangerous to anybody that they play and they’re going to score a lot of points this year.”LB Darrell Songy on the OSU Run Game“We knew they were going to be a big-time team when it came to the passing game.  But we knew they weren’t going to run the ball on us.  We just have to step up and finish the ballgame all together.”Mike Gundy on Leadership“Guys can lose focus, it’s happened to us before.  The leadership he provides and some other guys, prevent that from happening most of the time.  I am very pleased with the way he’s handling things and defensively there are a few guys that are starting to step up and lead.  A coach’s fear is to have let downs during the season.  I thought our guy’s prepared well, but you still have to come to play.”Mike Gundy on Mason Rudolph“In some of our read concepts where he has three things to do, they gave him a little bit of a unique look a few times and he did the right thing every time and resulted in big plays.” [Tulsa World]Marcell Ateman on Rudolph“He’s just become such a professional,” elder statesman in the receiver corps Marcell Ateman said. “It’s just his will to want to be great. To do better. To be the best. [NewsOK]If you’re looking for the comments section, it has moved to our forum, The Chamber.
