Here are some leftover notes and quotes from Wyoming’s 17-12 season-opening win over Montana Saturday:
–”It was a good start, but we can be better.” — UW coach Craig Bohl on UW having only one penalty in the game — an illegal motion penalty early in the fourth quarter — and how his team managed the clock throughout the game. UW’s time of possession was 34:54. It’s best last season was 28:31.
– “That why he was in there. He wa ble to make a play. He has a bright future. You never know they’re going to react, and he answered the bell.” – Bohl on the 18-yard run late in the fourth quarter by true freshman running back Brian Hill.
–“I just kind of go out there and do it, and have fun doing it. I remember I was out there and (the public address system) was playing one song that I really like (Closing Time). I was like, that was my song and I was out there just running over guys.” – junior running back Shaun Wick on a couple of his second-half runs when he ran over and dragged Montana defenders for extra yardage.
–”That was amazing. I was so happy for him. I was like ‘that was my little brother out there making plays.’ ” – Senior outside linebacker Mark Nzeocha on the blocked punt by his brother — sophomore tight end Eric Nzeocha.
