CB Mike Harris
Regarding practicing inside the stadium Monday:
"It's great to come in and get a feel for the turf, see what type of shoes that you'll need and what type of field turf is out here. The footing is a little different, and it's something you have to adjust to."
On bowl practice to this point:
"It's been fun. We've been getting back in the groove of it."
On facing a Notre Dame offensive line that has been very good protecting the QB:
"They are some big dudes. We have to bring our 'A' game pass rush-wise and running-wise. They can attack you in different ways, and we have to be prepared for it."
WR Bert Reed
On his progress from a hamstring injury that threatened to keep him out:
"I feel way better. The trainers did a great job. They really got me back to where I need to be way ahead of schedule."
His goals for his final game in an FSU uniform:
"I just want to put it all together, run good routes, get open and try and contribute to the team. Going into a game like this, you just want to contribute, however it is -- blocking, running, catching."
On whether he thought his FSU career was over when he was injured during the first bowl practice:
"It definitely crossed my mind. I felt like I messed something up because I never felt that before. I couldn't even run. It kind of scared me, but I knew that if I worked hard, stayed in the training room, I'd get back and be able to play."
