Tailback Willis McGahee on his 204 rushing yards:
"I thought I might get 100. If 200 came, I was going to take it."

Offensive lineman Vernon Carey:
"Hopefully we silenced all the critics. Everybody who watched the game knows what we can do."

Defensive tackle Matt Walters on Miami being a 1 1/2-point underdog:
"I don't know what that was all about. It's not a big surprise to us that any of that happened."
* * *
Safety Maurice Sikes:
"We have players who want to play and can play. Just nobody has heard of them."
* * *
Quarterback Ken Dorsey, on his play:
"I think I played well enough to win."
* * *
Center Brett Romberg on the Miami program:
"I think it is a wakeup call to everyone else that we are here to stay. We have always known that we have been here and nobody is giving us any respect. I think it opens up a lot of people's eyes that we didn't fall off."
* * *
Dorsey on the atmosphere:
"Any time you come into a stadium like this against a team like this, they are going to be very energized and ready to play. It is going to be tough to do exactly what you want to do. We were able to sustain that."
* * *
Dorsey on Miami's defense:
"I think our defense didn't let them run away with it. They took an early lead, and we were composed and able to play through it."
* * *
Offensive line coach Art Kehoe:
"We're rough and tough and ready to rumble. We still have a lot of hurdles coming up. But if we stay healthy, I like our chances."
