On boasting a nationally hyped defense:

"We have a great group of guys and a great group of talent. We recognize what we have. We want to be recognized as one of the best defenses in the nation."

On competing in the nation's top conference:

"Every team in the SEC is a good team. They all have great coaches. If a team beats you on one play, the next week, the next team will use that to their advantage."

On inexperience in the starting lineup:

"We have a great group of young guys that's ready to play. We have great confidence in their ability to step in. We don't see [inexperience] as a setback."

On returning to the field with a 'bad taste' in their mouths:

"Oh yeah. That bad taste is all around on the team after losing in the SEC Championship and the [Outback] Bowl."

On achieving success in 2012:

"[We have to] be more consistent from start to finish...from the first game to the last game."
