Quotes and comments from the University of Wyoming’s 38-31 victory over New Mexico last Saturday.
— “The Pokes better play better in all aspects of the game next week. (Colorado State) got beat on its homecoming and are going to come into Laramie a fired up bunch. The Pokes on defense still look weak and some of the tackling is pathetic.” — ’72PokeGrad from wyosports.net.

— “The offense looks like Charles Barkley playing golf.” — Xman from the UW-New Mexico live chat on UW’s offensive play in the third quarter.
— That play looked like the one that Austyn Carta-Samuels scored on against (Colorado State) to help send us to the New Mexico in 2009 minus the stiff arm. Brett has got some wheels.” — Chad on UW junior quarterback Brett Smith’s 48-yard touchdown run in the fourth quarter.
