Florida and Miami, it's an awesome rivalry. I've been lucky to be a part of it for a long time. We talked to players about how this is part of why they come to Miami, for games like this.
On this being the last scheduled game for awhile:
I don't know if that adds anything. I don't know if it'll be the last game either. Somehow they'll find a way to hook us up. We need to get after each other. It's important as it gets for us. It's a titanic rivalry. I think we can play on Key Biscayne and get 100,000. It's Florida/Miami.
On the process of preparing:
Our guys are excited about it. We have to concentrate. It's a process, like Coach Golden says. We have to have good practices, and come 12 Saturday it'll be a war. Your emotions will make it like you're playing two games. It will be a blast.
On preparing for a team as good as Florida:
I guess it's different. We're not looking at Florida as just another opponent. They have a terrific team, they're well coached, and our players know exactly what they're getting into. It'll be a matchup of very good players. Around 3:30 in the afternoon, it'll be 120 degrees. Someone will have to man up and find a way to win.
On UF's D-Line:
Number 2, Easley, does some crazy stuff on film. Our guys know. They watched the game live. They know what they're getting into. You come here to play against teams like Florida. Lets get it on.
On Brock Berlin being an honorary captain:
I remember at halftime, you had to go no huddle because we were down so much. He was sensational. That was one of the best games I've ever been a part of. We had some great battles with Florida.
On Duke Johnson:
As nice as he is, and as great a smile he is, and as talented as he is, he's way tougher than people think. Watch him finish his runs. He's putting hands in your face, not running out of bounds. He's a really tough guy.
