Postgame Quotes – No. 20/21 Richmond 46, Liberty 39

“What happens when teams come in here they are not ready for the environment and I made sure my players were ready for that environment here today. The student body was great and the energy was great. So I think that gave us an opportunity to really get off to a really good start. Offensively, we had a lot of rhythm in the first half and a lot of balance. Thing changed a little in the second half, I really felt kind of holistically that Liberty change up its offense coming into this game. It caught us off guard no doubt about it. I knew that Josh [Woodrum] could run the ball. I was telling my coaches all week long that we can't let Woodrum run the ball and they kept saying 'But coach he hasn't been running it' and I just knew that they were going to run him tonight. And boy did he run well. Then it comes down to a couple plays at the end. I think my kids bailed me out there a little bit. We probably should have kicked the ball deep middle. And then for them to bang a 60-yard field goal is something that you don't really see every day. Both teams competed really hard, it was a really big win for me personally, but it is time for us to move on and have some momentum as we get back into conference play.”
-- Richmond head coach Danny Rocco opening statement

“This is one of the more special moments here for me and my coaching coaching career. I was out walking this morning like I always do and I saw a lot of friendly faces and a lot of people kind of popped out of Starbucks and pulled off the road to come up and say hi to me. And you just can't even imagine how it made me feel. So it was just really, really special. I think the neat thing for me is that I can kind of let my guard down a little bit. We are not playing them for a while, so to be able to connect and see and visit it is a little easier to do. You know it is hard to do that when you are in competition and have two games scheduled. To come and visit and come in the FOC and say 'hey guys how is everyone doing' and the same thing for them and to come see me. So I am really excited about that and I think some of our friendships can kind of be rekindled moving forward.”
-- Richmond head coach Danny Rocco on returning back to Liberty

“I knew going in to overtime that I was going to have to step my game up and be able to run the ball. The past four games, we haven’t rushed the ball as well we would have liked and that goes in to our ability to not finish games. It’s a key part in being able to finish and win.”
-- RB Seth Fisher on the team’s success running the ball

“We knew we just had to gather ourselves and that we had to stop them, no matter what it took. All we had to know was that we had to get it done and that’s what we did out there.”
-- LB Omar Howard on the defense’s mentality heading into overtime
