Press conference

Michigan coach Scott Bell:

“I would like to start by saying I am NOT happy about allowing a touchdown to coach Herman’s team. That’s unacceptable and will certainly be addressed in the coming week.”

“Did I run the score up at the end? Not really. I just thought our kicker could use a little practice with onside kicks … four times in a row.”

“An autograph during a press conference? That’s unprofessional. But hey, I can’t say no to a fan.”

“They’re actually bringing him up to the podium to talk after that disaster? Ha. Can I stay and watch?”

Illinois coach Jack Herman:

“I’m almost as bad at coaching as coach Wright is at being sane and coach Bromwich is at not have a terrible haircut. Almost.”

“OK, I looked at score again. Maybe I am worse.”

“Well, at least I still have my dignity. What’s that? Half-price night at Old Country Buffet? This press conference is over.”
