MIDDLE LINEBACKER TRAVIS CARROLL: "We didn't make plays. We didn't make plays. It wasn't that they had that much more talent. We just didn't make plays."

QUARTERBACK REX GROSSMAN, ON COMING IN AS A RELIEVER: "He (Spurrier) just said to me, "We need three touchdowns in one quarter. Let's go see if we can do it.' "

WIDE RECEIVER JABAR GAFFNEY, ON HOW TO REBOUND FROM THE LOSS: "It's going to be tough. We just have to go out and do it."


CORNERBACK LITO SHEPPARD, ON PREPARING FOR FSU'S RECEIVERS: "Our receivers are the best receivers we face in practice every day. We were discussing what we had to do, but it didn't work very well."

DEFENSIVE END ALEX BROWN, ON TRYING TO PUT PRESSURE ON WEINKE: "It was very difficult. They had some good tackles; we couldn't get much pressure."

BROWN: "In big games like this you can't give up big plays. We gave up big plays."

OFFENSIVE LINEMAN KENYATTA WALKER, ON WHAT SLOWED UF DOWN: "A lot of penalties, a lot of miscommunication."

CENTER DAVID JORGENSEN: "This is something we are going to have put behind us. If we let happen what we had happen last year, we'll be doing ourselves a disservice."

BROWN, ON THE LACK OF ABILITY TO SCORE BY THE OFFENSE: "We win as a team. We lose as a team."

JORGENSEN ON FSU'S PROFICIENCY: "FSU didn't do anything we didn't expect. It's a matter of throwing and catching and hitting on all cylinders. We didn't do that. We have a lot of mistakes to correct."
