    • On C.J. Hicks and Arvell Reese: “A lot of growth. Those guys have been in the meetings all year. They have learned from the starters' mistakes. Now that we are in bowl practices, you see them learn and start to understand defenses. It’s gonna be awesome to see them play.”
    • On how bowl practices have gone for him: “It’s been fun. It’s having fun with the boys. You get to a point where this is all you’re doing. You finish school up, and then you’re in the facility having fun with all the guys. I’m trying to have fun with it.”
    • On Missouri running back Cody Shrader: “He’s quick. He’s like a little Christian McCaffrey. You see him get in and out of cuts. He’s got good vision. It’s gonna be a helluva job (for us to stop him). It’s gonna be tough.”
    • Chambers joked that Ohio State got “inside drill for Christmas.” Chambers said he did not ask for inside drill for Christmas but “you gotta do what you gotta do” and said “you sign up for it” as an Ohio State football player.
    • When asked if he expects to play with Tommy Eichenberg this week, Chambers said, “You know, everyone is at practice. We don’t really know how the rotation is gonna go or anything. You expect to do whatever the coaches decide to do. We are just focusing on the game, really.” Chambers added: “Whoever is out there, we are gonna go out and have fun.”
    • On his football future and potential to enter the 2024 NFL draft: “I’m just focusing on this game, really. I’m taking it one game at a time.”
    • On the team’s desire to play for each other and win the Cotton Bowl: “I attribute that to Coach Day. After the events that took place, it was hard looking forward since we weren’t in the playoffs. It was hard to focus on the game ahead. But Coach Day really rallied the troops, brought us in and told us to be laser-focused on this one game. You have to end the year with a win no matter what you do.”
    • When asked to provide further comment on why Ohio State wants to end the season with a win, Chambers said, “It shows that we don’t have any quit. You lose a game, and sometimes you roll over and give up, but you have to show that you have resilience. That you can come back and win a game like this.”
    • On Missouri’s offense: “I see a tough team. I see a team that’s disciplined. I see a team that knows what they’re doing and does it well.”
    • On year two with Jim Knowles: “He was a pain in the ass at times. He gets on your in practice. He gets on you in the game. But we all know that he loves and cares for us. … He’s all bought into it. He really cares about this program, and I trust him.”
    • “It’s definitely grown, but it didn’t come out of nowhere. They’ve been doing it all year. Now that we are in bowl practices where guys are getting more opportunities in practice, those guys are applying what they’ve been learning all year. They’re showing that they’ve been listening all year and learning from the mistakes we’ve made.”
    • On James Laurinaitis: “He’s a helluva guy. It’s nice having someone who’s done it. He understands how hard it is. He’s able to relay any nugget or pieces of information he’s gone through in the past. We realize that, ‘Oh, that makes a lot of sense.’ Having his wisdom is huge for our linebacker room.”
