- Josh Bynes on focusing amid bowl hoopla: ``Practice is going well. Everybody is into it. A lot of guys say it's hard to focus because it's a bowl game -- all the things we've got going on. In meetings, everybody's into it. We're having a great time, but at the same time we're working hard on being a good team."
- Bynes on riding rollercoasters at Busch Gardens: ``I got talked into it by Mike (Goggans) and Byron Isom. There were a lot of guys scared to get on rides, but it was a lot of fun."
- Bynes on why Auburn's defense was better during the season's second half: ``We came with a mindset that we're going to come after the other team. We were tired of hearing everybody saying this defense isn't good. We came up with a great scheme. Our whole mentality is: Three downs. That's all we've been thinking about for the second half of the season."
- Gene Chizik on today's practice: ``I felt like the tempo was up. It was a little shorter today because of some of the events. We're coming down to the end of the week anyway. This was our Wednesday-ish practice for game week. Good work today. I think we're going in the right direction."
