Video/Transcript: Warren McClendon and Tate Ratledge Interviews – September 28, 2022

On Missouri’s defensive front…

“They play physical. We watched their game… They play physical. They do a lot of movement. They bring a lot of pressure. They do a lot of blitzes. Just looking at film, they play hard and they play fast. I’m really looking forward to (this weekend).”





On being atop the SEC in sacks allowed…

“We always take pride in keeping our quarterback clean throughout the game. When that doesn’t happen, we don’t like it but we keep pushing through. We can’t care about it too much, and we’ll fix it Monday. Running the ball… we pride ourselves on running the ball, too. Being a physical offensive line. Getting in, watching film, and correcting the little mistakes that we make. Just trying to get better at that.”

On playing a night game…

“Night games… We love them. The atmosphere there is going to be good. I’m ready for it. After back-to-back noon games, finally getting a 7:30 p.m. game will be nice.”

On the mentality of keeping the quarterbacks clean

“Coach Searels preaches that sacks and tackles for loss, lose us games. So, we believe in that. We try to keep Stetson (Bennett) untouched the whole game, which hasn’t worked out like we’d like it to, but that’s our goal going into every game.” 

On things he’d like to work on individually and as a team…

“Personally, hat placement in the run game, footwork in all parts of my game, and hands. As a unit our offensive line, still being physical every game we come in to, and making sure we set that standard.” 

On how he felt physically having to play four quarters against Kent State

“I felt pretty good. I feel like conditioning is something I can always improve on. I don’t think you’re ever in good enough shape, there are points during the game after a long drive where you’ll be tired later in the game from that drive, and it’s going to happen in games but it’s something I want to work on.”
