Miami Head Football Coach Butch Davis On The Latest BCS Rankings

Nov. 20, 2000

CORAL GABLES, Fla. – Miami head coach Butch Davis comments on the latest Bowl Championship Series rankings released Monday afternoon:

“I wouldn’t want to do anything to affect the mental approach of our players for our upcoming game. We have a very important BIG EAST Conference game against a conference rival that we have great respect for. Our focus this season has been to win the BIG EAST, get a Bowl Championship Series bid and to position ourselves to play for the national championship. There are still some scenarios that are feasible that could change the BCS picture. When looking at the BCS situation, the most important thing for our coaches and players to keep in mind is that we must continue to win on the field. There are things still to take place over the next two weeks that will play a role in the outcome of the BCS, but we have to win our remaining game with Boston College for any of them to matter for us.”
