"I was kind of sick with myself. Last week with two fumbles, it really hurt me," Ridley said of fumbles that helped North Carolina rally from a 30-10 deficit before LSU held on for a 30-24 victory. "It was on my heart all week. I let the team down, and I had to come out here and make a statement."
"Look at the last three national championship teams from the SEC. They all had a physical running game," Ridley said. "They all had one downhill runner. (LSU) had Jacob Hester, Florida had (quarterback Tim) Tebow, who was like a running back. There was Ingram at Alabama. Now, Auburn has Cam."
