Moe Brown Talks About Debut As Starter
Question: How is the offense different with Syvelle Newton at quarterback?
Answer: Syvelle is very knowledgeable about the offense we run. He comes in and gives us another aspect of the game that we don't have with Blake. He's a quarterback who can run and scramble. He made great passes during the week and made good reads. We're as comfortable with him as anyone else.
Question: What is the feeling of the team after you have to win a close one against Wofford?
Answer: With any team we play, Coach Spurrier expects the best out of us and to put up as much points as possible. On four of our first five possessions we scored. In the second half we came out kind of flat and didn't do that. Of course we had higher expectations, but we didn't get it done. It's a win, but at the same time, we feel like we should have done a little better.
Question: How much has Sidney Rice done to help you adjust coming into your freshman year?
Answer: Sidney is a great mentor. When I first got down here he took me under his wing. He took me to Food Lion to get me some food and stuff. He's taught me a lot. He taught me how to read corners and learn body position when catching. It's a great opportunity to learn from somebody like that.
Question: Do you think you are further along in your development because of Sidney's help and you both being from the same part of the state?
Answer: I think it has something to do with it. We have a little saying on the team where we say "USRs," which is "Upstate Receivers."
Question: What was it like starting tonight for the first time?
Answer: It was great. As a kid growing up, I always dreamed of playing college football. Every kid dreams of that. It was great.
