Head Coach Kevin Kelly

On the victory over Colgate and clinching a winning-season for the first time since 1999...

"I'm so proud of our players here, especially the guys that have been around here through some tough times. Our two goals, one was to have a winning season, we got that today, and the second is the Patriot League. We've got six wins. Next week we've got a huge game next week at Holy Cross. We'll have our hands full with that one in Worcester, Mass."

On what it took to stop Colgate...

"What you saw today was a cumulative effort in all phases. We had some big plays in special teams, some big plays on defensive. And we made plays in a big way to score, it was a huge team win. Again like I said, I'm just so happy and excited for the way our guys played today."

On Jeremy Moore's big day...

"He made some big plays for us, that's what Jeremy does. He had two big picks that stopped some drives and a big kick-off return. That's what I talked to the guys about, it's a field position game, all those things are part of making plays.

On stopping Colgate's eighth ranked rushing offense...

"We didn't give (Colgate running back Nate) Eachus a chance to get going. At the line of scrimmage, if you don't get a bunch of maniacs to the ball, gang-tackling him, he can make some plays. We didn't let him get started, our defensive front seven did a terrific job."

On Wilburn "Chance" Logan's performance...

"The thing that people don't realize is that Chance Logan, Dalen Claytor and Brandon Durham run a lot heavier than they look, that's what's great about really all three of those guys. At first contact they're not going down yet. All three of those guys are very, very effective. I think our offensive line did a great job today. In practice a lot we worked on the run. In the last couple of weeks we've sputtered a bit on offense. Today we were balanced, and that's why we sustained drives."

On the first touchdown pass to Jamal Davis...

"It was a big play, and we needed explosive plays. Jamal was just trying to get the first down. It just gives our team confidence. When you execute, and you're very emotional on the sideline, that's what's going to happen."

Junior Cornerback Jeremy Moore

On his two interceptions...

"Coach made a great play call, they must've thought I was coming early, but the safety came over so they thought I was coming, and they threw it right to me, nothing spectacular, they threw it right to me."

On his interception and kick-off return ability...

"It's all up to the other ten. Anyone can run through a hole. The front ten did a great job to open up a huge hole."

On holding Colgate's offense...

"Once again, great play calling all day, we hit our marks, everybody basically just did their roles. We played relentless. We did a great job gang-tackling, we continued to push back and it was a great day on defense."

Senior running back Wilburn Logan

On outrushing Colgate...

"It was especially the front five, they were doing the dirty work blocking downfield, I wasn't being touched until I was five yards down the field. I give it up to the front five, the tight ends, the receivers, Nick Campanella, everyone around me helped me this whole game. The holes were huge, it was a great feeling. It wasn't really me at all, it was the other ten."

On his hard running style...

"Like Coach Kelly said before, I sort of have a chip on my shoulder being the smaller guy. That's one rule with our running backs though, you can't go down first. In practice we're competitive, the way we run, everytime we get hit we try to make sure the first hit isn't what gets us down."

On clinching a winning season...

"We were all here for that 0-11 season, and coming back from that they said it was going to be different. Every game we try to just finish 1-0, but next week it's back to work, we have to play Holy Cross, they're a really good team."

Junior Linebacker Robert McCabe

On his interception return for a touchdown...

"We had them on the ropes, I read the quarterback and made a break on the ball. The line did a great job making a play on the quarterback. I was just there to make the play."

On finally playing a home game after five weeks on the road...

"Being on the road for 5 weeks, I started to miss the Multi-Sport Facility

On the front seven's play against Colgate...

"In years passed, we haven't been able to match up with them. So that was our key. We wanted to stop the run, that was our main goal."
