QUOTES FROM HEAD COACH Bobby Bowden
(on the morning practice)
“I thought we had a good practice. We got a little goalline in today. It was about the same as yesterday. I don’t have any new news.”
(on Brodrick Bunkley)
“He sure has played well. He stayed healthy, that is the biggest difference with him. It would have hurt if he would have gotten injured. It would have made us mighty thin there. Behind those first two tackle we have about all freshman. Anyone that can do that (hold up a double team), that means there is a one on one somewhere else.”
(on Penn State’s linebackers)
“This reminds you of the typical Penn State linebackers they have had for years. The thing about them is that they are all juniors. I think one of them might be a sophomore. They are physical, quick and smart. They are always in the right place.”
Cornerback J.R. Bryant
(on getting to play in his hometown)
“It is going to be great to go home and play in front of my friends and family. It doesn’t get any better than that. Everyone is looking forward to it. I have 19 people as of right now but I promise there will be way more than that.”
(on Penn State’s offense)
“The have a real good passing game. Their quarterback is very good, he is a mobile quarterback so you have to watch out for that as well. That will make it a little harder for us. They have some good wide receivers. We just have to come and play ball and be ready for a physical game.”
