This kid (Mohamed Ibrahim) has more heart, passion, courage, plays the game the right way, than anybody I’ve ever met. He deserves a lot of credit, but our whole team does.

(Ibrahim) never came off the field the entire year, never missed one rep on the scout team, ever. And that shows the type of person he is. And as good as he is on the field, you’re not going to find a better person off the field. You’re not.

I just told the guys that we don’t get to write our own ending and everybody’s disappointed in the way it ended. I told them I was sorry I couldn’t find something better that they could do, that we could do, to help them win the game, and that I would miss them.

It’s tough. It’s the last one you play in college. You don’t know if you’ll get a chance at the next level. You hope you do, but if you don’t, this is the last one you play. I mean, it’s tough to go out this way. Very emotional.

You saw Mo (Mohamed Ibrahim) in full force. The kid’s a workhorse. He just, you look at his style line, just in general, and it’s eye-popping. And it’s the offensive line giving him pushes and stuff like that, but that guy attacks.

When you don’t have Jacob Herbers punt, he basically did not participate other than holding for the field goals or the PATs, but that’s what you want to see on offense. Keep your punter off the field, move the chains, control the clock, score points.
