On not preparing for FSU during the bye week:
It was tough because obviously this is a big game. Our coaches didn’t want us focusing on it during our days off but some guys did and watched film of them during our days off.
On how teams have kept it close with FSU:
Teams come out with a lot of energy. They got hyped up. We have to do a good job coming out with energy but still coming out and execute our assignments.
On how UM views FSU:
It’s Florida State and they’re still undefeated. When you’re playing them, they haven’t lost in two years, so you have to come out ready to play. We have to prepare well and stay focused.
On the magnitude of this game:
I came here to play in games like this. If you want to be a great player, you have to make plays in games like this. It’s a big game but for us it’s just another game and we have to play well.
