Coaches Review The Battle…..
Notre Dame Head Coach Lou Holtz:
“I want to congratulate Navy. They always play hard and they nevergive up. Those are fine qualities in our future military officers.”
“Overall, I was pleased with the way we played. We made some big playson defense, and I thought the offensive line played very well. We knewwe had to make some plays on the line of scrimmage. Every time Navyscored, we responded and I was real pleased with that.”
Navy Head Coach Charlie Weatherbie:
“We are disappointed with the way we performed today. We playeda good Notre Dame football team and you can’t give them the opportunitieswe did with turnovers. Our fundamentals were not very strong. They area good, physical football team and we had trouble up front on eitherside of the ball.”
“Fundamentally, we didn’t play Navy football. This loss hurts us. We hada great opportunity to play and beat a good Notre Dame team.”
