- it's 1:02...1 minute till Skip
- Happy to have been in open date with the winning feeling "shot of adrenaline"
- Excited for an in-state rival game...4 very spirited practices in the open week...back to basics mentality...lots of young players
- In pads today...spirited practice...Estenor & Popek back at practice today
- 5 seniors now out...concerned about where the offensive leadership will come from
- Popek and Estenor will be back and help for senior leadership
- D'vo practiced and Andre Davis is limited, but hopes to be full go by Thursday
- Willie Davis is back...was nursing an ankle
- "Bus ride rivalry", closest is LV so is happy to have this type of a game
- Duke Johnson has been putting on a show...talented offense line
- Similar D to USF...young but can run...D has "Miami speed & athleticism"
- Miami can share a regular ACC title with wins
- Likes Eveld experience, leadership, and command of the huddle
- Both completing 63% of passes in practice
- Floyd: more elusiveness and has a quicker release, but doesn't have the experience
- Statistically very close...choose in between experience against potential explosiveness
- Wanted to redshirt Bobby, but BJ injury doesnt allow for it
- The QB that is going to play is the QB that gives them the best shot to win
- Doesn't want to make the decision before kickoff, but not rushing it.
- Most likely will make the decision after Thursday's practice
- Doesn't want to run a "platoon" type of QB scheme
- Bobby has had a team first attitude...he could be the starter even with Floyd's extended eligibility
- Almost in a bowl mentality...been giving seniors rest and allowing for the younger guys time to develop
- Want to get this team bowl eligible, but if the young guys step up an do well that will really help this team's development
- Missing the leadership on the vocal side...Landi, BJ, Popek, Estenor, Lindsey
- BJ was the spark in the offense, especially in practice, so the young guys are now stepping up and helping with leadership
- No real group of Jrs that can help for the future leadership
- Likes the development of Price & McFarland over the bye week
- Most of the WRs are So and under and so is the OL so the real young guys are stepping up and putting the onus on themselves to become leaders
- Staff needs to step up in BJs absence and needs to aid in leadership
- Seniors lead by example, but now since they are hurt they need to be more vocal
- BE has good balance and the BE has had some good games against non-conference opponents
- Wants to represent BE & USF against Miami
- BE has done well in bowl games against different conferences
- Would like for this game to be renewed even though there are conference contract negotiations going on presently
- Have to slow down Miami before they get started...can't load the box and blitz on every play
- Have to stop and chorale Duke Johnson...potential to break the big play, so need to be smart
- Winning in state rivalry games really helps with recruiting...Barrington and Kayvon chose USF over the U
