Coastal Carolina vs. VMI
Oct. 8, 2011
Brook Stadium - Benton Field
Coastal Carolina Head Coach David Bennett
On taking out Hillary in third quarter:
"After Aramis (Hillary) scored in the third quarter we wanted to get him out of there, especially having lost Jamie (Childress) who left the game with an injury."
On next week's opponent Liberty:
"We are going to take on the toughest task we have had in a while, going to Liberty, they have not lost a home conference game in over five years. They have two losses already this year against two top 10 teams (James Madison and Lehigh). It will be a great challenge for us to play a very hungry Liberty team that we defeated last year."
On the play of QB Aramis Hillary:
"He has been a very good quarterback, a very good leader, making good decisions, taking care of the football. If the quarterback takes care of the ball without turning it over then that is all we can ask."
VMI Head Coach Sparky Woods
On the play of his team:
"I thought that we didn't help ourselves much by dropping a pass that would have put us past the first down marker and we had trouble blocking for our passers. You get behind and now you've got to try and catch up, which puts Coastal at an advantage and allows them to do what they want to do. It hurt us losing one of our best corners early in the game and then our best lineman. Our guys continued to battle, which was good for us, but we've got to focus on getting our team better and see if we can get a win this coming week."
