Coach Matthews' comments

About the quarterbacks: "Anthony Calvillo is number one and all the others are tied for number two." About the defensive line: "The pressure up the middle from the front four is better than last year." About Étienne Boulay, injured at yesterday's practice: "We're very disappointed for Boulay because he was very impressive in the short time he was out there."
