QUOTES OF THE DAY
"We got out-physicaled, out-coached, out-special teamed, out-everything from the second half on."
-- Football coach Robbie Caldwell on VU's 40-21 loss to UConn (Source: The Tennessean)
"They outplayed us. You can't say any more than that. They just beat us. They were more physical up front and we didn't execute, and it showed out on the field."
