Coaches Speaking About The Clash
“I don’t think there’s any question, it’s been a first class trip for our football team since we arrived Christmas night. The hospitality, the people has been second to none,” said Auburn head coach Gene Chizik.
“I feel like the events for the players have been really, really fun. In all the bowl games I’ve been to, this has to be right there at the top in terms of the hospitality, the organization, just the way the week has flowed for our players.
“I think they’ve really enjoyed it. At the end of the day, this is a reward for our players and our coaches and their families as well. We had a lot of little kids on our staff. They’ve had a ball. It’s just been a great experience. We’re just very appreciative of everybody.”
MIKE LONDON SPEAKS
“It’s been an exciting week for our players, for the program, for the opportunities that have been extended by the Chick fil A Bowl committee, the community of Atlanta,” said Virginia coach Mike London, speaking about the 2011 bowl experience so far.
“It’s been a learning process for them but also entertaining. Also understanding a football game has to get played. I think the whole experience, it’s hard to believe that today is Friday and we got here Monday.
“At the same time it’s been very productive. Guys are very excited about the opportunities that have been presented to them.
