Interesting tweet this morning from Michigan AD Dave Brandon: "Receiving much advice re: our FB program. Appreciate the passion & interest. Many thanks to @desmondhoward for his confidence & support."
Miami AD Kirby Hocutt says, “Whatever it takes” : “Simply stated, winning is important at the University of Miami -- always has been, always will be. At the U we expect to compete for championships and nothing less. We have a group of talented young men in this program, and our future is promising. To once again sit at the top of the college football world, Miami must be relevant in college football.
“We will not compromise on winning.''
“We'll do whatever it takes to get back to the top of the college football world.”
Frank Beamer compliments his coaching staff: “Where we started and where we finished, it’s remarkable. We were at a point where we were just trying to win the next game, but it just makes a statement about this team and this coaching staff.”
“We have a tight-knit group here and it’s been quite a year. The two losses make you appreciate the 10 wins even more.”
Tulsa head coach Todd Graham points out his program is “Co-West Division champions” : "I am really, really proud of this football team. I don't know if I've ever coached one that I feel better about."
"You look at it and it's a Hail Mary pass (against ECU) and we'd be in championship. We had some missed field goals and a couple of dropped touchdowns (at SMU).
"I want to congratulate Coach (June) Jones. He's a class guy. I want to point out that we're the co-West Division champions and I don't want to make light of that ... we're 9-3 and going into a bowl game."
