CHIP LINDSEY -- Really happy with yesterdayOffense played hard and played well against a really good defenseWas an uphill battle at times, especially in run game. -- Pleased with film review of Iron Bowl. -- Thought third-down efficiency was key. -- "Kerryon was Kerryon." -- Realistic shot of Kerryon playing? "Sure, I hope soI think he'll do everything he'll have to do to be ready to go." -- Called Kerryon "day-to-day" and Kam Martin is "good" and practiced tonightConfident in Martin, Malik Miller and Devan Barrett if needed against Georgia. -- On how validating trick plays working is: "It's definitely disappointing if it doesn'tThere's a lot of plays like that that look good on paper." -- On Jarrett Stidham's performance: "He played well..I thought he made really good decisions." -- On meshing with Stidham: Got to know him while recruiting him at Arizona State, and coaching him has been greatSaw a guy that was "eager and hungry." -- On Stidham as a run threat: "It's something we had, it just depends on does the defense present that?..It goes back to decision-making." -- Can Kam Martin get ball 20 times? "I think he's capableObviously we'd probably play two or three guys, but I feel good about all of them, to be honest with you." -- On short passing game: It's important because teams load the box and you have to have answers for that to try to offset some of that. -- On Jarrett Stidham's improvement at staring down a blitz and finding open man: "Our wideouts did a really nice job of getting open, and that helps..I think that's just his maturation as a quarterback, continuing to improve and playing more." -- On Stidham's high expectations: "Maybe from the outside, but for us, we knew we had a play that was talented...He's matured and grown and been thrown in the fire a little bit." -- On facing Georgia again: "It's a challenge" especially against a talented Georgia team. -- On rankings: "I don't really have much to say about thatThat's for everybody else to talk about." Believes team has improved each week and is better since that collapse at LSU. -- Auburn is treating the SEC title game like a road game"It's something our guys understand, and I think they're looking forward to it." -- On South Alabama opening: "I'm focused on what we're doing here." KEVIN STEELE -- Happy and excited for his players and what they've accomplished in the two years since he asked them to buy in. -- Third downs were a positive. -- Auburn had seven missed tackles on five plays during Alabama's third-quarter touchdown driveUncharacteristic. -- Excited for defense's chance to play for SEC Championship but understands challenge of beating a really good football team twice in the same season. -- "It's got a life of its ownThe last game, it's not going to look anything like the last thing in anybody's imagination." -- Everybody was present at practice and in good spirits. -- On Tre' Williams: I have a lot of respect for himHe has an injury they monitor closelyThose stingers, you never know when they're going to pop up. -- Auburn affected Jalen Hurts without blitzing muchOnly called two blitzes against Alabama on passing downs. -- Told players it's a "LeBron game" -- "2 and 3, you better know where they are." Said Carlton Davis did a great job in one-on-one pass coverage.  -- Doesn't expect Georgia to change a lot with its run game because of stable of talented running backsDoesn't think Auburn would hold them to 43 yards rushing again if they played the game 12 times but "I would jump up and down if it was so." -- On keeping it simple: "We are simple, but we got plenty to do to do what we need to do." -- On Jordyn Peters and young defensive backs: "Our young guys, we feel comfortableWe knew that was going to be a four-quarter game and that game has the potential to go down to the very end...We knew when they were going in..but we have a lot of confidence in those young guys." -- On third-down defensive success against good offenses like Georgia/Alabama: "Sometimes you're trying to break tendencies, too, and you don't want to get into a rut...Really, in these games, we did what we doWe did it with a four-man rush, the coverages we play -- we play a lot of themIt wasn't really magical." -- On Stephen Roberts' growth, jokes: "He hasn't grown a whole lotHe doesn't weigh but a buck-78." -- On defensive line's dominance: "Back in fall camp, spring practice, we said everything we do, we don't hide from itEverything we do starts and ends with the guys up front." -- On message to defense given the stakes: One play at a time"Dominate your assignment, own your real estate." -- On how team has been able to handle playoff approach last six weeks: LeadershipSpecifically notes Tre' Williams, Tray Matthews, Stephen Roberts, Dontavius Russell. -- On recruiting: When you're successful and you win on the grass, it affects recruitingThat's the way it worksEverybody wants a new, shiny carThey don't want a used car.
