Mario Cristobal reflects on Oregon’s first conference crown since 2014


GOING TO BE STOPPING BY OUR SET ALWAYS DELIVERING FOR US. CONGRATULATIONS COACH, NOT ONLY ON THE PAC-12 CHAMPIONSHIP, PUT INTO CONTEXT WHAT TONIGHT ACTUALLY FEELS LIKE YOU’RE DISPOSED YOU CAN’T PUT IT INTO CONTEXT YOU CAN JUST BE PROUD AND LOVE THE PLAYERS AND REALLY THINK THE PLAYERS THAT’S ONE OF THE FIRST THINGS WE DID WAS THANK THEM FOR THEIR BUY-IN TO SUCH A DEMANDING BLUEPRINT. THESE GUYS WERE 4-8 COACH THIS WAS A COUPLE OF YEARS AGO AND NOW THEY SIT HERE AS CHANCE WITH A CHANCE TO GO TO THE ROSE BOWL, AND PLAY A GREAT FOOTBALL TEAM ON THE BIGGEST STAGE IN COLLEGE FOOTBALL. HOW DO YOU PUT THAT INTO WORDS, RIGHT? >>COACH, I’M CURIOUS, BECAUSE OBVIOUSLY YOU HAD — IT WAS FUNNY BECAUSE AS YOU WERE WATCHING THE GAME, YOU HAD THIBODEAU’S NUMBER ONE RECRUIT IN THE COUNTRY, AND THE WAY HE WENT OFF TONIGHT, THEN HAD A GUY IN THE SECONDARY WHO WAS JUST FIGHTING TO SURVIVE, A GUY LIKE BRADY BREEZE HERE, YOU KNOW, WERE YOU OUT RECRUITING HIS TALENT LEVEL, NEXT THING YOU KNOW, HE IS PLAYING WITH FIRE HUGE STOP ON FOURTH DOWN AND ALL OF A SUDDEN, HE GETS THE BIG INTERCEPTION, KILLS THE DRIVE ON THE ROUTE THAT TYLER THINKS HE HAS A DECIDED LOCKED UP HE BAITS THEM INTO THROWING THE HIGHER POST, A BIG HIT IN THE PASSING GAME, ANOTHER FOURTH DOWN, I MEAN, WHAT DOES IT MEAN WHEN YOU SEE THOSE GUYS, MAKING PLAYS AND GUYS WHO ARE VETERANS ABLE TO PUT YOU OVER THE TOP? >>YOU KNOW WHAT, IT IS THE WAY THAT THEY PRACTICE IT’S THE WAY THAT THEY APPROACH THIS ENTIRE THING. BRADY IS A SPECIAL GUY. HE REALLY IS. HE LIVES AND DIES FOR THE UNIVERSITY OF OREGON OBVIOUSLY FAMILY AND EVERYTHING THAT GOES WITH IT HE’S PLAYING A REALLY HIGH LEVEL. I DON’T KNOW IF WE ARE TRYING TO RECRUIT THAT GUY. HE IS DOING JUST FINE AS HE IS BUT YOU KNOW IT IS JUST THAT, THIS TEAM, WE DO THINGS A CERTAIN WAY AND THEY WILL TELL YOU THAT. WE WALK A CERTAIN WAY, PRACTICE A CERTAIN WAY ENTERING A CERTAIN WAY SO THAT WE CAN SHOW UP ON FRIDAYS AND SATURDAY. THAT’S WHAT YOU HAD TONIGHT. >>MARIO, I THOUGHT TO YOUR CREDIT, THAT THE GAME TONIGHT WOULD BE ONE IN THE TRENCHES. I REALLY DID, AND PARTICULARLY, I THOUGHT THE STOUT UTAH D LINE AGAINST THIS MASSIVE TOUGH OFFENSE OF LINE, AND BOY AS AN AIRLINE GUY YOU GOT TO BE ON IT. THAT LINE WAS OUTSTANDING. >>THEY APPRECIATE YOU SAYING THAT I CAN’T PRAISE HIM BECAUSE THEY THINK I WILL BE CRAZY BECAUSE THEY KNOW IT DOESN’T COME FOR ME BUT COACH MARABLE, BUT OFFENSE OF LINE CARRYING THE OFFENSE OF GA, THE AMOUNT OF PRIDE OF, YOU KNOW THE OTHER GAMES RIGHT. JAKE HANSEN, DALLAS, THE WAY THESE GUYS APPROACH THE GAME OF FOOTBALL IS THE WAY YOU ARE SUPPOSED TO DO IT. WE’VE WATCHED OUR PRACTICES NOW THEY ARE PRETTY GOOD, BUT YOU HAVE TO DO THAT TO BE ABLE TO DO THAT, LATE IN THE SEASON. THESE GUYS DIDN’T FLINCH WHEN WE WENT FULL THROTTLE ON TUESDAY, ON A SHORT WEEK AND WENT OUT THERE FOR TWO HOURS, TO MIX IT UP. SO, THERE IS A RESULT OF ITS VALIDATION OF THE HARD WORK. >>I WANT TO TAKE YOU BACK, BECAUSE IT MIGHT BE TO THE DAY A COUPLE OF YEARS AGO WHEN PLAYERS ARE WALKING AROUND MULLEN’S OFFICE, AND THEY ARE COMPETING. >>AND TRYING TO GO THERE UNLESS YOU WANT TO. GUYS A THOUGHT FOR YOU AND DELIVERED AS YOU LEAVE THIS GAME. >>THEY ARE NOT GOING TO MAKE ME CRY. YOU CAN STOP RIGHT THERE. YOU KNOW WHAT IT DOES? LOOK, I’M BLESSED BEYOND WORDS, TO BE A MEMBER OF THE UNIVERSITY OF OREGON. I MEAN, SO MANY GREATS HAVE COME BEFORE, AND OUR JOB IS TO UPHOLD THE LEGACY. I LOVE THESE GUYS. AND YOU WORK 24 SEVEN, YOU TRY TO FIND A WAY TO GET 26-9 NOW, YOU TRY TO FIND EXTRA HOURS OR MINUTES TO DO WHATEVER BECAUSE THEY WENT FOR ABOUT — WENT TO BAT FOR YOU. >>I THOUGHT YOUR OFFENSIVE GAME PLAN WAS OUTSTANDING TONIGHT. I THOUGHT YOU WERE SPOT ON, DIALED ANIMALS LIKE YOU KNEW WHAT THEY WERE DOING IN EVERY PLAY. >>COACH ARROYO AND STAFF WERE OFF THE CHARTS, WHEN YOU WATCH THE FILM THEY WILL MUG YOU UP THEY WILL PLAY PRESSMAN COVERAGE, BUT OF THE GUYS TO DO IT. THEY HAD THE GUYS TO KNOCK YOU BACK SO THE QUARTERBACK WAS GOING TO HAVE TO BE A FACTOR IN THE RUN GAME AS WELL. THE RECEIVERS WOULD HAVE TO BE A FACTOR AND THE RUN GAME AS WELL, THEY WERE JUST AS RESPONSIBLE FOR THOSE BIG RUNS AS ANYBODY ELSE. >>COACH WE ARE OUT OF TIME BUT I WOULD BE REMISS IF I DIDN’T BRING UP YOUR TEAMS DEFENSE I THOUGHT THAT WAS THE DIFFERENCE IN THIS GAME. HOW PROUD ARE YOU? >>OF THE CHARTS TO GO AN ENTIRE HALF AND NOT ALLOW ANY POINTS. THE PLAY OF ALL OF THEM, COMBINED, THE WAY THEY COMMUNICATED, YOU WATCH THE SHIFT IN MOTION THAT’S DIFFICULT NOW. REAL DIFFICULT ON THE WAY THAT WE GOT DOWN THOSE LINEBACKERS, GETTING DOWNHILL JUST TAKING ON BLOCKERS, SHEDDING BLOCKERS, GETTING THE FOOTBALL, WHEN THAT BALL SLUNG ONTO THE FLATS, EVERYONE WAS AWESOME. HIS BUDGET WAS ALSO WATCHING YOUR FOOTBALL TEAM NOT ONLY TONIGHT IN THE PAC-12 CHAMPIONSHIP GAME BUT ALL SEASON LONG, CONGRATS ON THE SUCCESS, STAYS HEALTHY AND SAFE TRAVEL TO PASADENA IN A COUPLE OF WEEKS WE WILL SEE YOU THERE FOR THE ROSE BOWL. THAT WILL FEEL PRETTY GOOD. THAT ICE BATH. >>TWICE. I GOT IT TWICE. SOMEONE’S GOING TO RUN. >>YOUR IN THIS WIND TUNNEL RIGHT NOW. >>YOU GUYS ARE -BENT . >>MARIO CHRISTOVAL.
