Freidgen Press Conference Quotes

In case you didn't know, Ralph Friedgen held a press conference today, and he kind of pulled a bit of a Mike Gundy on us. The press conference really focused on Steffy. Here's everyone quote I could find:

If you want to boo me, boo me. Don't boo the kid. You know, there's a lot of things that bother me right now with this whole thing. I've got a kid that has done everything that I could possibly ask him to do. Would I like him to make some better decisions or throw some better passes? Sure. But this kid to me is the epitome of what we want in this football program. ... You know, I'm like the father. If you're booing my son I'm going to get upset. That's how I look at this kid. If he was a kid that didn't give effort, that didn't prepare, then that would be a different story. That's not the case with the kid. ... I can tell you this, regardless of who plays this week or next week or whatever, Jordan will come in and win the game for us before the season's over. ... I promise you that.some of those people that are booing him would love to have their children [be] like Jordan Steffy. The perseverance, the courage, the toughness that this kid is going through and keeps a smile on his face and a positive attitude, he has nothing but my admiration. And I personally don't think it's justified…I can't tell you how proud I am that he's in our program and how proud I would be if he was my son or anybody else's son…I want that guy in the foxhole with me, because that's the type of kid he is.

That's all for now. Working on finding a video feed, but I'll leave it up to you guys to draw your own (frightening, perhaps?) conclusions.
