FSU Sports Information Excerpts:
Head coaches Bobby Bowden and Rich Brooks took part in the final bowl event of the week Sunday afternoon. The two veteran coaches met with the media as the head coaches press conference marked the final team event before the game kick-offs at 4:00 p.m. EST Monday.
FSU Head Coach Bobby Bowden
On being shorthanded:
"When we play the game its not like we are going to put a bunch of guys that ain't good football players out there. We still got first teamers, you know? The thing I am concerned most about when people ask is depth. Can you hang in there with them for 60 minutes? That is the big thing."
On being an underdog:
"You know, really most of my life has been that way. I was always the runt of the litter. You know coming up through high school and college and we have upset a lot of people as I have come up, you know since being here at Florida State. I really like that role better than being a touchdown favorite. When you are a touchdown favorite you got a lot better chance to win but I really enjoy the underdog role."
Kentucky Head Coach Rich Brooks
On the FSU defense:
"We are going to need every able body and playmaker that we can get because obviously Florida State defense to me is a lot like some of the ones we played in our league. Georgia is an example. We had a very difficult time moving the ball on Georgia."
On the importance of Kentucky running:
"I know for us playing Florida State, if we don't run the ball somewhat effectively we are going to have trouble protecting our quarterback because they rush the passer as good as anybody in the country."
