Top 10 Rose Bowl Quotes

Ducks celebrate their 2nd Rose Bowl victory

The Oregon Ducks football team touched down in Eugene after a dominating performance over Florida State in the Rose Bowl. We thought we would revisit some of the best quotes from the Ducks’ historic day in Pasadena:

”It kind of looked like he slipped on a banana, like in cartoons.” – Oregon linebacker Torrodney Prevot on Jameis Winston (

”I think what he did as a competitor and what he does with his teammates, he’s one of the great players in not only college football, but college football history to me, it was a tough day out there.” – Florida State Head Coach Jimbo Fisher regarding Winston (

“Sometimes,” Allen said, jaw clenched because of the frigid Los Angeles night, “injuries happen in football.” – Oregon receiver Devon Allen (Oregon Live)

“The longer you go, the stronger you get, we went longer and we stayed stronger. Everyone kept demanding more out of each other.” – Oregon Safety Erick Dargan (ESPN)

“If everybody in this room just want to be real with themselves, this game could have went either way, we turned over the ball a lot. We beat ourself. Just be real with yourself right now — we beat ourself.” – Florida State Quarterback Winston (

“We just tried to out-team them.” – Oregon Coach Mark Helfrich (Bleacher Report)

“Florida State has quit.” – ESPN’s Kirk Herbstreit

I love my squad no matter what #FSU till the day I die D.I.E. What an amazing year we still will have the same # of Ls as the champ #LMAO – Winston on Twitter

“We still have to win the big game next week to prove that we can be part of the big club, anyway.” – Oregon Graduate and actor Ty Burrell of Modern Family (Bleacher Report)

“It’s incredible. I’m so proud of these guys right here. We’ve got one more to take care of.” – Oregon Quarterback Marcus Mariota (ESPN)

Obviously, there were many other memorable quotes from an incredible day. Let the media frenzy begin for the National Championship Game. I expect the Ducks to continue to handle the game and the media with their usual class and character. Won Not Done!
