After signing day, Sal Sunseri had a chance to meet the media. He was not only entertaining, he served notice that just because Werner and Carradine are gone, opposing QBs still have something to fear.
“As I was sitting home and I was waiting to see what I was going to do, if I was going to go back to the National Football League or if I was going to stay in college football, my wife said, ‘What do you want to do?’
“I said, ‘Well it’s real simple. I got spoiled at the other place I was at, and I won two national championships. And if there’s a place that I want to go that I believe is on the rise, I want to go to Florida State and I want to coach with Jimbo and I want you to be with Candy (Fisher) and Tara (Trickett) and the rest of the families.”

“We’ll have a good defense. Let me just tell you this: our asses are going to get to the quarterback.”

Jeremy (Pruitt) and I have been together for a while. We’ve had some amazing experiences.
(On FSU’s three DE signees)
Demarcus Walker – “He’s on campus right now. He came out and he worked out for me. I put him through an NFL-type workout and I saw what he was able to do. And I immediatey told Jeremy, no matter what we do we’ve got to get this young man in the program. He’s explosive, he’s strong. This young man can run. The thing that’s exciting about him is that he is doing everything right.”
Davarez Bryant – “His quickness, his speed, his athleticisim, his ability to drive inside or outside and make plays is going to make this kid a whole lot of money one day. He’s special. And he’s a fine, fine human being.”
Desmond Hollin – “He’s so big, he’s so athletic. He’s explosive. He’s going to be a force out there.”
