Western Carolina head coach Mark Speir:

Opening comments:

“We were non-existent in the second half. I give The Citadel credit, they played hard. The two punt blocks were inexcusable – those were the biggest plays of the ball game. We’ve got winners in that locker room, but players that haven’t learned how to win yet. We’ve got two weeks to focus on these games. We need to see guys that want to practice and get better and learn how to win. The Citadel found a way to win and congratulations to them.”

On adjustments or differences from The Citadel in the second half:

“They just got after us. They just got physical and whipped us up front. Credit to them. They didn’t panic and we did.”

On the next opponents, the Wofford Terriers:

“We are going to go to work to fix the Catamounts. Wofford is a good football team that is trying to win a Southern Conference championship. I cannot wait to see what our response is. We get to play a top-ranked team in the country at our place.  We will see what our mentality is.”
