You can tell I'm excited by the ALL CAPS. Those on twitter that aren't already can follow @BUFootball for coverage of the press conference on a tweet-by-tweet basis. Those that aren't can look to this thread, where I'll post as many quotes as I can find from the festivities (below the jump).

So far we have...

Art Briles on Nick Florence: "He is the consummate team player...his teammates know where his heart is."

"I think we are on the right path from a football standpoint. We'll find out on Sunday when we roll out there."

"SMU is good on the defensive side of the ball, and we feel like we can be good on that side of the ball."

"Bryce (Hager) and Eddie (Lackey) are both good football players. We feel like they are going to be good LBs."

"With Nick (Florence), we know we are going to get passion, great effort and a great amount of intelligence."
