NEW ORLEANS — Five days before their undefeated football teams meet for the 43rd annual Bayou Classic, Southern's Dawson Odums and Grambling's Broderick Fobbs took turns answering questions from assembled media on the turf at the Superdome.
Here is a full transcript of everything they had to say, with the questions that were posed to them in parentheses.
Dawson Odums, Southern University head football coach
When you get to this point of the season, you want to be playing really well as a football program. To get here undefeated is a monumental task. Both teams have had adversity, they’ve played well, and we’re going to decide everything here at the Bayou Classic.
It really reminds you of the heyday when the Bayou Classic was sold out and many fans were coming to watch two great programs compete for that weekend. It’s on display, there’s two fine institutions … playing for an opportunity to play for the SWAC championship. It don’t get any better than that.
