A very un-Spurrier-like comment from the other head ball coach in the Palmetto state:
"There are a lot of teams on the rise, and I'm proud of our league. We've stepped out of this league and had some huge wins, and that's what we've got to continue to do. I'm proud of Florida State, because we needed somebody to punch through and get that national championship back in this conference."
