COLLEGE PARK, Md. –

Offensive Coordinator Mike Locksley

On quarterback C.J. Brown’s health and the offense:

“Obviously, what we do on offense and what we ask of our quarterback, especially C.J., we try to build it around the skill set. Early on, he showed his ability to make plays both with his arms and his legs. There’s no doubt he’s been banged up since the West Virginia game and there’s no doubt that I agree with him that he’s as healthy as I saw him last week. Coming out of the bye week, he was just a little rusty, not having played a lot. But we put the challenge on him that he needed to go out and make big plays and he stepped up for us.”

 

On quarterback C.J. Brown’s chemistry with the wide receivers:

“It’s coming along. He’s thrown to all those guys through the course of the season and in practice. So that part of the chemistry is there, it’s just more of him being healthy and being able to get the reps.”

 

On if he had ever coached a 2,000-yard running back like Boston College’s Andre Williams:

“I was pretty close with LaMont Jordan in [1999], but that kid is a good running back, one of the better running backs in the nation.“

 

On facing former defensive coordinator Don Brown:

“I would say that we have a bunch of guys that have been here throughout the course of Don being here. Luckily, we faced them last year at UConn, so we’re pretty familiar with him. He does a great job defensively, and has been one of the top coordinators; I know he’s well respected in this building so, we’ll have our work cut out for us but we’re up to the challenge.”

 

On Boston College defensive coordinator Don Brown’s style:

“Well, he doesn’t have a conscience when he brings it, where he brings it, and how he brings it. For him, it’s very organized in his mind, but for an offense with new parts all over the place it’s a matter of trying to figure out where it’s coming from and getting it picked up in a running game and a passing game.”

 

Defensive Coordinator Brian Stewart

On Boston College running back Andre Williams:

“He a big back; runs hard. Runs hard late in the game. He is very impressive. You don’t run for 1,010 yards and not be good. We just have to get all 11 guys, all 11 hats to the ball.”

 

On what he has seen on film from Boston College running back Andre Williams:

“He wears you out. If you look at tape, you see that the same guys tackling him early are the same guys missing and getting ran over late. He just gets stronger as the game goes on and you get tired hitting a big body.”

 

On the confidence amongst the players following the win at Virginia Tech:

“Any time you get a big win, especially when you get a big win against a team that you know some of the guys on the other team, you get excited. I still think that we still have to play and stay excited for the next game and that’s what they are; they are excited to have the opportunity to play against Boston College.”

 

On if he enjoyed the trip back to College Park following Saturday’s win:

“I was pretty excited. It was about time we get a good plane ride back. I was excited, as soon as I got comfortable in my seat I started thinking about Boston College. I looked up the score and tried to see what Williams did; he had a great day, one of his best days.”

 

On Boston College’s offense:

“I think Alex Amidon is a good receiver. He’s solid coming in and out of breaks, attacking the ball in the air. He’s getting wide open now because everybody is in the box trying to stop the run. Chase Rettig, I always thought that Chase was a good quarterback. We’re looking at a guy that had a different coordinator every year. So, that poor guy can’t get a system down, he’s doing a great job of adjusting to whoever is telling him what plays to run. I think he’s a great talent, has a good arm, does a good job escaping and he must be a smart kid because he’s gone through three coordinators and he’s still the starter.”
