East Carolina Head Coach Ruffin McNeill
On the game tonight against UAB
"This was a really good conference win for us. I am extremely proud of the way our guys fought in this game. It was also a nice road game win for us. At halftime, I had a few words with my team, and they responded well after halftime. They know I love them, and I am extremely proud of the way they responded."
On the overall scope of the game
"You have to give UAB credit because they are well coached. We came out and played a good game without too many penalties, and we did not have any turnovers. We are definitely happy about the way we came away with the win tonight. For us, 5-3 looks a lot better than 4-4."
On the performance of Wide Receiver Justin Hardy
"He played huge for us. We had a good game-plan coming into the game, and we were able to execute it pretty well."
