Coley talks FSU

Read on to see what offensive coordinator James Coley is saying about preparation for Florida State, the school he attended and previously coached at.

On returning to FSU:
It's a great place with a lot of great memories. I know members of the staff. I'm excited to go back. They've done a great job this year. I'm very proud of them. I'm looking forward to seeing them.

On the rivalry game:
You worry about what you worry about, which is your team. It's the same thing week in and week out. This week has special circumstances. As every week goes on it's a different challenge. Being a rivalry, players knowing each other, there's a lot of emotion.

On what it'll be like going back in that stadium:
I don't know. I'll tell you after. It'll be different. I'm looking forward to see what it's like.

On whether he was anti-Miami while at FSU:
I grew up a block from the Orange Bowl so it was always interesting watching Miami. The hatred was never there.

On preparing this week:
Both teams are undefeated. I know one thing I'm fortunate to have is a bunch of kids who come in here every week and look forward to the challenge. I'm glad they come in every week with that hunger. This week you don't need to do anything extra to motivate them.

On being on the field now versus upstairs:
I enjoy it more on the field. You get more one-on-one time with the guys. I have a great staff upstairs that relays information to me.

On Stephen Morris' ankle:
It was a shame when it happened. It set him back a bit. There's been a lot of work to him getting better. He's finally feeling good. There's no frustration right now.
