On playing Georgia Tech:
That’s what it comes down to. Guys have to be disciplined against that offense.
On GT’s quarterback:
He’s real good. He’s very fast. We have to do a good job of tackling him.
On what happens if guys don’t stay disciplined:
Same thing that happens against Nebraska. They can get big chunks of yards.
On Malik Rosier running the scout team:
He’s very fast. I actually got fussed out today because he gave me a move and ran right by me. He’s doing a great job preparing us.
On the interior defensive linemen:
They deserve a lot of credit. They’re holding up the line for linebackers to make plays. Every time I make a play I go over and tell them to keep it up.
On Ufomba Kamalu’s progress:
A lot of growth both physically and mentally. He knows the playbook in and out and he’s doing a great job holding up the line.
On working with the younger linebackers:
When I first got here I got with Sean Spence. That made it a lot easier. Coach D does the same thing but different guys have different ways. (Juwon Young) came in and would call me every 10 minutes. We’d be together at lunch and he’d always be asking questions.
On the game Miami played against Ga Tech his senior year of HS:
I just remember Miami lost and they gave up a lot of yards.
On Joe Yearby:
He’s a clone. Duke is a little faster but they both have the same running style. You gotta wrap up and tackle them both. Joe, you need like three guys to tackle him.
