Coach David Bennett(on Georgia):
"The Georgia Bulldogs will be fine. If (quarterback Aaron) Murray stays healthy, they will be better than fine. He's one of the most talented quarterbacks I've ever seen. He's very accurate and he's got a phenomenal arm. They've got some of the biggest guys I've ever seen and fast people all around them. There as talented a team as we've played since we've been at Coastal Carolina University."
Coach David Bennett(on playing Georgia):
"It's a great challenge. We go to play the game. (The field) is 53 yards and some change wide, by 100 long. It doesn't matter if its in front on 90,000 or 9,000, we want to go get better. We are `the Catawba' this week, we are the small guys. Hey, they're the dogs. We are going to have to fight the dogs off."
Coach David Bennett(on having Georgia players out for injuries):
"You might have found one little weakness, but, I promise you this, the guys they have behind them are pretty good, too."
Coach David Bennett(on the hopes of the score for the Georgia game):
"I know (Georgia). People are probably telling (the Georgia players) that they need to wear (Coastal Carolina) out. For our young men, we are going to play this great game; we've got to honor this great game by giving it all we got. (This game) was here long before us and it will be here long after us. It's a great game that we are blessed to be a part of. Going to Sanford Stadium, between the hedges, that's college football at its finest. We can't worry about the score. We've got to go play the game. I want to see our young men have success between the hedges at Sanford Stadium."
Coach David Bennett (on whether Jamie Childers will continue playing both quarterback and tight end):
"Jamie wants to do whatever we ask him to do, whatever we feel like we need him to do for the team."
