Benjamin talks loss, new wrinkles in offense.

After Miami's 28-24 loss to North Carolina Saturday, Travis Benjamin sat down and talked about it as well as some new wrinkles in the offense.

How close were you to breaking a big return?
The first one I was sort of close, I just needed to make the punter miss.

On his role with the offense...
They want me to get the football and put me in a position to use my abilities and make touchdowns and big plays. We have a lot of new plays for me. You are going to see a lot more of it.

They just want to get the playmakers the ball. They have me running more routes and end arounds to get me the ball more. I have been doing it since high school, where I was doing everything.

What can we take away from this game?
We need to just keep doing what we are doing. Going to practice every day. Forget about the loss and go into Florida State and get a win.

We need to finish. Some are saying we finished, but we didn't finish right. No one is slacking off, we are doing good. But there is just a crack in the window. We played good.

How long will it take to get past this loss?
It is over. I don't want to think about it no more.
