"He's terrible. I can't believe they tried us like that. They tried our life, man. ... He's not good at all. It motivated us a lot. That was straight-up bulletin board material. First of all because of how much success our defense had. We've been really, really good and nobody's ever said anything like that to us. So we were like, 'this man must have lost his mind.' What did he do that was good? He didn't do nothing that was good, we were killing him. That touched me, that hurt. This is my defense. This is me. That's me out there. He tried our lives, man."
Florida State linebacker Vince Williams unleashed a fiery response to Northern Illinois quarterback Jordan Lynch's pre-Orange Bowl comments. Lynch and the Huskies tried to back down from them, but it was clear the Seminoles were motivated by them.
What an idiot Lynch was...

That was the first thing that I thought when I read Lynch's comments. After that I actually was grateful thinking that if these comments did not motivate them then nothing else would.
I hope players (from other teams and our own) learn to do more talking with helmets and disciplined play than words in the media.
Seriously, when is the last time someone talked smack and won? Not any I recall.
Lynch was terrible, we played 6-7 better QB than him this year.
I'm not sure there's a player on the team that was playing better than Vince in the last two games. I'll miss him.
Lynch had that look of fear on his face after the first couple of hits. I've never seen a player have those kind of facial expressions during a football game.

I don't think the appreciation of the size, speed, athleticism, strength and physicality of our defense came through on film. Reality set in quickly.
Didn't Namath do it in the Super Bowl predicting a victory?
3-2-1 TOUCHDOWN FSU
I was not the slightest bit impressed with Lynch. Obviously the numbers are there, and he sure knew how to get back up after getting repeatedly clobbered, but his arm was hideous, and he could have had 2-3 TDs if he was anywhere near accurate on his passes. I guess he was just completely scared, or trying too hard, but man, he was awful waffle.

No, that's a myth just like the Babe calling his shot or landing on the moon
