QUOTE OF THE DAY
Head Coach Chan Gailey
Q: When you saw FS Jairus Byrd’s interception live and then on tape, what was your impression?
A: Any receiver that has ever played the game would have been proud of that catch. That was an amazing catch. The distance that he covered…You watch it on game tape, not TV, but you watch it on game tape and see when he broke—the whole play was just really amazing. It was a great play.
