He is a very passionate guy, ... He wants everybody to get better. He wants everybody to be great.

Not turning the ball over is a big key to winning football games.

I always say things happen for a reason, ... If C.J. hadn't gotten pulled from that game in Georgia (in 2002), Chris wouldn't be at Florida right now, and that's the bottom line, and he's having a great career at Florida.

Whoever establishes the running game will set the tempo of the game, ... Our running backs will have to play a big part if we want to win this game.

You'd have to ask DeShawn that. Of course he wanted to play bad last week, so that was keeping him alive.

I think you have to have a running game in the SEC. You have to have that balance. Teams are too athletic and too good not to have that.

He's a versatile guy. He's like a Fred Taylor or a LaDainian Tomlinson. He can do all those things, and that's what we try to let him do.

It was a huge win against a great team. All we're focusing on is that we're 3-0.

[For the first few days on campus, the Leaks lived together in Chris' apartment. But after so many years of sharing a bedroom while growing up, that got old pretty quick.] Chris said to me, 'When is C.J. going to get an apartment, Dad?' ... They love each other, but they have to have their space.
