What they're saying…
"Mike Bellamy is the most focused that I have ever seen him, right now. He's coming out, competing every day."
-Tajh Boyd

"I'm very pleased with Zac. He brings a bigger body-style than all of them. He's like all of the freshmen. He's throwing through a haze. When he's running, sometimes he runs high. He gets hit. He hits something or something hits him high, but he's learning. I'm very excited about Zac Brooks."

"Mike Bellamy is a guy who can break the game open in any step, any play on the field. He's doing a good job. We've got to continue to push mike. Mike is an unbelievable talent for us. He's definitely showing it out on the field. We have to get his pass protection [better]."
-Chad Morris

"Zac Brooks has been very impressive, tough, hard-nosed runner, downhill, very fast, good vision. He's got to learn how to really secure the ball the ball properly. The bullets are a little faster, coming a little stronger at this level. He's adjusting to that a little bit."
-Dabo Swinney
