Video: Interview with UVA linebacker Daquan Romero

uva uclaUVA linebacker Daquan Romero talks with reporters after the Cavs’ 28-20 loss to seventh-ranked UCLA in the teams’ 2014 season opener.



On what the team takes from the loss:

“We played a hell of a game. You know, sometimes it doesn’t go how we want it to go. We just have to go into film and get better. Like I said, we played a real good game offensively and defensively. We just have to keep each other up and make sure nobody gets down or, you know, dwell on this moment too much because there were a few mistakes. We all make mistakes. We all mess up.”


On the Virginia defense looking forward to the matchup with UCLA:

“We’ve been looking forward to it since the summer time. People underestimating us and doubting us that we weren’t going to do anything because they’re a high powered offense. We took that personally, very personally. Someone said the score was going to be 43-17. ESPN this morning said they were going to win by 21. Guys took it personally.”
