  1. "I'm excited to be a part of it," Fisher said. "You go into your career and to get involved in some of the great traditional rivalries in college football you feel very blessed. When you're a kid watching TV, growing up wishing you could be a part of that, this is one of them you talk about all the time. It'll be a great game on Saturday. I'll be very blessed to be in it and look forward to the opportunity to competing in it. They have got a great program and are coached well, have great players so we'll have to be on our A-game."
  2. "Sometimes you do things in games that guys will never do on the practice field," Fisher said. "It's a pride about them, a competition level and that's the thing that makes athletics to me so great. There's nothing you can predict, in what the competition brings out of someone. Some guys don't know they've even got it in them, that's what makes it so special to me you see guys evolve and grow as people."
  3. "This game is always a big game," Fisher said. "With the implications in-state and to be the state champion of Florida will put you into that national title talk. It does mean a lot. It can help us grow and go to where we need to be and that's one of the reasons you come to Florida State - to be in this game and we want to get back up there."
  4. "A lot of the [Miami] guys I went to school with, played high school down there," said Beau Reliford, who grew up in Fort Lauderdale and attested to the pride involved with this game. "It's a big challenge to show those guys we have all developed and I want to see how they have developed in college too. So, it's just a pride thing to me; just going trying not to lose. My main goal is to go hard and give the fans what they want to see."
  5. "It means a lot," said Chris Thompson who followed the rivalry as a child and will be playing in South Florida for the first time. "Ever since I have been watching football (they have) always been the biggest games of my life, to sit down watch Florida State-Miami and Florida State-Florida. So it's fun to be part of one of those teams and be able to actually play against them."
