AH: It’s great. I mean, hey. Put that much points on the board, beat Louis – I mean beat Cincinnati. I’m feeling good.
AH: (Grabs recorder.) I’m here with Stephen Nicholas. Stephen Nicholas, how many sacks did you have today?
SN: I didn’t get any.
AH: Are you serious? What was the problem?
SN: There wasn’t a problem. We got good pressure from our line, uh, Tim Jones, uh, uh, Jason Allen. Those guys played hard.
AH: It seems like it was pretty tough for you to remember those guys’ names. I mean, you work with them every day, right?
SN: Most definitely, there are so many guys – I mean, I’m excited about the win.
AH: It puts you bowl eligible now. I mean, what’s next?
SN: Trying to win another game, that’s the objective.

AH: You ever played in the cold before?
SN: You know what? I don’t think I’ve played in that, that cold.
