On the added intensity this week:
Everyone knows it’ll be a big game but we have to treat it like another game. Don’t do too much, just do your job. A lot of guys think they have to be the man but the reality is we each have to do our jobs.
On the rivalry to him:
I don’t know guys from FSU because I’m from Los Angeles. It’ll be a great challenge. It’s in our best interest to keep the talk on the outside and play our game.
On whether he understands the history:
Definitely. Growing up, the NCAA game, there’s always the FSU/UM rivalry. The wide right highlight is on there. I saw it all.
On his freshman season:
Just coming in, I didn’t know what to expect. You can’t make excuses even as a freshman.
On FSU having so many great players:
I suppose. It’s all college football. Every team has good players. Every team we’ve played this season has good players. I treat them all the same.
