Q&A with re­ceiver Mar­quise Brown

The Oklahoman (Sunday) - - SPORTS -

Ok­la­homa wide re­ceiver Mar­quise Brown

had a big de­but sea­son for the Soon­ers a sea­son ago. In Satur­day’s OU spring game, he had six catches for 39 yards, but his high­light was a footrace against stu­dent Nic Arm­bruster. Brown eas­ily beat Arm­bruster. Af­ter the game, Brown talked about his spring, his new Big 12 cham­pi­onship ring and the race:

Q: How do you think the game went?

A: “We’ve got to play bet­ter. The wind was a fac­tor a lit­tle bit. The de­fense did a good job. I felt like we came out there and we were ex­e­cut­ing, we’ve just got to con­vert on third downs.”

What per­cent­age ef­fort were you giv­ing in the race?

“I started at 60 and then I went to 40.”

You looked back at him when you fin­ished it off.

“My team­mates told me to do that. I had to fol­low through with it.”

Were you wor­ried about run­ning in the cold?

“No. I didn’t have any in­ten­tions of go­ing that hard. But I knew once it was cold, they can’t be in shorts, they’ve got to be in some type of long pants. So I was good about that.”

What’s your fa­vorite part of the ring?

“I ain’t even looked at it yet. I like this side right here (with the Col­lege Foot­ball Play­off logo). I don’t like this (the Rose Bowl logo). We’re gonna be back. We’re gonna be back for that one.”

What did Adrian Peter­son say to you all be­fore the game?

“He just told us we bet­ter not lose, that we bet­ter go win.”

What do you think about the progress of fresh­man de­fen­sive back Miguel Ed­wards?

“Miguel came in with an at­ti­tude. He talked to me, CeeDee (Lamb). He re­ally didn’t care who any­body was. It was fun go­ing against him. He plays big­ger than he is. He plays ag­gres­sive. He’s from where I’m from so I’m cheer­ing him on.”
