"They whipped them. They held Louisville, a team that probably averages 45 plus points a game to 14, and it was no fluke. It was absolutely no fluke."

"We've seen film on them before. They've got a lot of speed. When you've got speed anything can happen. They are well-coached."

"Jerail... he's a big offensive lineman. We're going to have a lot of fun with him."

"He goes, 'Who is that #2? Who is that #2?' I said coach I told you I've got a bunch of great running backs."

"They are as good a pair as you can [find]. They are both tall, fast. They almost remind me of Pete Boulware... is Manny. Manny's actually taller, faster, and stronger than Pete in college. Andre Wadsworth is Mario. Mario is taller than Andre. Both can run awfully fast and are physically strong. It don't get much better really."

"Kyle Newell is somebody, and I don't know what's going to happen to him when mother nature takes over. When you see him and Mario walking down the street, Kyle is taller. Kyle was a defensive end in high school and a wide receiver, and he's playing wide receiver. He is about 6'6.5 and he's got good hands... he really really does."

"Ray Michel... Ray Michel is going to be a leader of this football team. He's a big Levar. His motor doesn't stop. He's really an intense individual."
