Q. Not to denigrate your round at all, 66, that would be tournament best and yet you got beat by five today.
CHRIS RILEY: Yeah, that's kind of like throwing a 3-hitter and losing the game, isn't it? What do you do? You just -- you know sometimes -- that's what we do is we compete and if someone beats you and you played well -- I played well. I maybe left one or two shots out there. That would have been 6- or 7-under and Chad shot 10-under. So great for Chad.
Q. Did you guys, when UNLV was traveling around did you think you guys had such dominant touring pros, dominating the world?
CHRIS RILEY: We finished second and Chad was our No. 1 player. We switched off our senior years. He played two years and I played two years and it was back and forth. But Chad is a -- what can I say about Chad? He's a great guy. He's obviously a great player. Just low key, nobody knows who he is really.
Q. You and he were on that team and didn't you guys almost recruit Tiger?
CHRIS RILEY: Yeah, we did. No, actually, no, Tiger, it was either Chad or Tiger. We lost Tiger to Stanford. That opened up a scholarship and we got Chad Campbell. So we look back at it and Coach Knight always jokes, he goes, "We lost Tiger, but we got Chad." I can't say enough good things about Chad. He's a good guy. It's even hard for me to get words out of Chad Campbell. He's so quiet.
Q. I thought it was us.
CHRIS RILEY: No, no, it's just the way he is. I hope, if I don't win this thing, I really hope he wins.
Q. Analyze Chad's strengths and weaknesses as a roommate.
CHRIS RILEY: Yeah, he was always, he couldn't do quite as many sit-ups as I could do at workout. No, just kidding. No.
Q. I suspect that's probably true.
CHRIS RILEY: We used to go work out to the mornings and then eat our chocolate donuts on the way home. But it was kind of funny. But, no, Chad wasn't always a very good putter. He's obviously making a lot of putts now. But he's always been a great ball-striker, great driver of the golf ball. Coach Knight at UNLV really helped him with his putting and I talked to the guys who were out on the Hooter's TOUR when he was dominating and they were saying he makes everything. So it's really no surprise to me. Sports Illustrated knew it wasn't really when they put him on their cover. It was nice to see Shaun Micheel win the PGA, but I was really pulling for Chad and I really thought he had a great shot at it. But he's going to be tough to beat tomorrow because he knows how to win and he's won numerous Hooter's events and Nationwide Tour events and now here he is trying to win his first TOUR event, which will be difficult for him. But like I said, if he doesn't win, I'll be really pulling for him.
Q. I was trying to set you up, I was asking what were his strengths as a roommate. What did he do well as a roommate when you were living together?
CHRIS RILEY: Oh, as a roommate.
Q. Was he a slob?
CHRIS RILEY: Oh, our place was a pigsty.
Q. Now we're getting there.
CHRIS RILEY: No, I mean we -- Chad loves McDonald's and, yeah, we hardly cleaned up our apartment very much. We lived a couple semesters together and when the semester was over it just absolutely stunk in the room. Someone needed to come in and clean it. And we would always get it cleaned before we left and then when we came back we would start over. But we had a good time as roommates.
Q. What year did you guys finish second in NCAA's?
CHRIS RILEY: 1996.
Q. Who beat you that year?
CHRIS RILEY: Arizona State, Pat Perez.
