( Post Game ) MARIO CRISTOBAL DISCUSSES 7-6 WIN OVER MICHIGAN STATE – “It’s great to see them achieve that next level of success and elevate the program”
You hear it all the time from coaches and players.
A win is a win,…is a win!
On Monday, the Oregon Ducks ended their 2018 season with a 7-6 nailbiter over Michigan State in the Redbox Bowl to send head coach Mario Cristobal and his team back to Eugene with a New Years Eve memory he’ll never forget.
“It’s great to see them achieve that next level of success and elevate the program,” said Cristobal after the game when asked about his upperclassmen who played for three head coaches in as many seasons.
“They’re going to continue to raise the standard.”
While the Ducks win over the Spartans wasn’t the prettiest of victories, or the most satisfying to the eye, it was still a victory that was hard fought and well earned.
“We felt like it was going to be that kind of game just watching them on defense,” explained Cristobal after the game.
“We kept battling and battling. You take a victory, whether it be one point, two points or 50 points.
“These guys found a way to get it done.”
Cristobal, along with Troy Dye, Justin Herbert and Dillon Mitchell, spoke with the media in their post game press conference and discussed the difficulty of playing the Spartans and coming away with the win.
