Commit reaction: Notre Dame vs. FSU

Notre Dame commits offer their reaction to Notre Dame's effort in a 31-27 loss to Florida State last Saturday, including input on the controversial ending to the game.

DT Micah Dew-Treadway - "First of all, it was a great and competitive game. It could have gone either way. Both teams fought hard, but of course I think we played better... VanGorder schemed amazingly. It gets me excited for next year to play prime time under the lights with all the fans. "

WR Jalen Guyton - "They cheated us... but I yeah, I can't wait (for next year). Everything about Notre Dame gets me hype."

LB Josh Barajas - "Great game against a great team. Wish it could have turned out better. Can't wait to get there next year to help the team out."

WR Miles Boykin - "Great game but the better team didn't win. I'm excited to get to ND to play in these big games."

CB Nick Coleman - "Still pissed about the end, but I think we played well and also showed the country how good we really are. It's especially games like that I can't wait to play in."

DT Brandon Tiassum - "It was a great game. It sucks that we lost on a 50/50 call like that. A game like that just makes you want to suit up and give it your all to play. I can't wait to play for Notre Dame next year."

S Prentice McKinney - "Very competitive, good game, and we should build from our mistakes. Losses shouldn't bring us down, but it should make us come together and go harder and stronger the next game."

S Nicco Fertitta - "Thought it was an amazing game other than the last penalty! I can't wait to be apart of the team and play in big time games every weekend."

OG Tristen Hoge - "It was definitely a fist fight from beginning to end. Each player showed tremendous fight from the first to last whistle and true resilience."

Added 2015 four-star safety target and Alabama commit, Ronnie Harrison of Tallahassee (Fla.) Florida State University School, "I thought Notre Dame should have won."

Harrison will take an official visit to Notre Dame on Nov. 22 for the Irish's last home game of the season vs. Louisville.
