Coley: The players have responded well

Read on to see what offensive coordinator James Coley is saying as the team prepares to take on Virginia Saturday.

On goals this week:
Get back to winning, and get back to playing good football and having fun. You only have fun when you're winning so we want to get back to executing better. It's time to move on to the next opponent.

On moving on:
When you have the right type of guys, it's easier. Our guys come in early, they're dedicated players. We're trying to finish off and have a strong season.

On Stephen Morris:
His goal is to lead us to a couple victories, take us a bowl game. We haven't done that here in awhile. He's not an individual player. He's a good teammate, and guys like that.

On Stacy Coley:
His status is good. He's fine.

On Dallas Crawford:
He's so versatile. He even played receiver last game for us when we had a few guys go down. He's the jack of all trades. He ran the ball hard. He's a tough competitor and understands the entire system. You can plug him in anywhere.

On if he's surprised at how well Crawford's running it:
I saw it in training camp. I'm surprised, not because of him, but start running the ball like he's been doing it all year long. We're very happy to have him.
