Billy NapierRichie Leonard, and Devin Moore spoke about Saturday’s win over Tennessee and this weekend’s game against Charlotte during Monday’s press conference.


BILLY NAPIER: Everybody doing good today? All right.

So got to start off by this is a really unique experience in the Swamp Saturday night relative to our fans. They put on a show for the entire country to see. They impacted our team, brought a lot of energy to our players, created momentum in the game, and certainly made it very difficult for Tennessee. Caused procedure penalties. Ultimately they were a part of the plan and did their part. Can’t compliment them enough.

When you get texts from people that have been around here for a long time, they tell you that’s the best it’s been in 15 years, I think you’re probably doing something right. So our fan base was incredible.

That’s what the University of Florida football can be. We need to do that more consistently. Certainly as a staff and team we can do our part. So proud of the team.

Ultimately I think that was a little bit of a buildup of a two-week response. Proud of the response in particular from the players. Certainly the staff provided great leadership.

Now you’re presented with a new set of problems, right? Just met with the leadership group at 11. I think this is a challenge of principles-centered leadership. I think ultimately it’s important that you don’t react, that you actually have something that you can stand on.

I would say throughout history, we’ve learned that there’s a set of values and principles that are time-tested. Also we try to teach those to the players. I think they use that, right? These can be a guide that can help you stay on the right path when you’re experiencing tough things. I do think they can allow you to evaluate where you’re at. They can help you recenter. Ultimately they can help direct your decisions, correct the things you need to correct in your life.

I was proud of the players and the approach they took since the Utah game. Now we can use those same things to apply to success, right?

Reality is that you don’t accomplish anything significant by staying in your comfort zone. I think we were uncomfortable for two weeks. We were frustrated. We were angry. We were embarrassed. That allowed us to have an edge and certainly affected the way we prepared for Tennessee and helped us play the way we played.

I think it’s important that we keep that, right? We have discipline. Discipline ultimately is making yourself do things that you don’t want to do. Our consistency is going to be key, okay?

Set of issues that come with success. Last year’s team couldn’t handle momentum. We failed to capitalize several times throughout the season. I think this group has the right approach and I’m excited about the work that we’re going to do this week.

This Charlotte team has a new staff with a new head coach. They have a complete overhaul of the two deep. I mean, we’re talking about multiple transfers across the board from all over the country.

When you turn the film on, I think the scoreboard doesn’t necessarily predict what you would see. I think this is a very capable group. Big, long, fast. I do think they’re very fundamentally sound. I think they play with toughness. I think they’ve got just enough here they can create some issues for you.

It’s important that we stay humble in how we prepare, that we are getting uncomfortable this week so we can be comfortable Saturday ultimately try to sustain some of this momentum that we have here.

What questions do we have?

Q. About handling success, do you refer to anything from last season? Utah, Kentucky, South Carolina…

BILLY NAPIER: Yeah, I mean, that’s exactly what I’m talking about, right?

Q. Do you go back to those experiences?

BILLY NAPIER: We don’t do that now. I think we’ve done that throughout the off-season.

I mean, I think it’s part of the messaging from the jump when you evaluate the season, right? Ultimately it’s leadership all throughout the organization.

I think every part of your building has responsibility to model what we expect from the players. We all have human nature to get comfortable, to relax, to not have the same urgency or detail, to not have the self-discipline to follow through. It’s our job to attack human nature when we see it. That’s at the player level, that’s the video, equipment, nutrition, the training room, the strength and conditioning staff, all parts of the building.

The challenge here is that we do what we would ask the players to do so we’re not just talking about our young people, we’re talking about everybody.

Q. You alluded to no finger pointing, et cetera. Would you talk about how the leaders you’ve seen, how they have really brought this team to a better spot right now than they were after Utah?

BILLY NAPIER: Yeah, I think ultimately just the ability to take ownership, personal responsibility for your contribution to the team, and realizing this is a team game, and it resembles life in a lot of ways.

I would say that one of the things we try to teach our guys is that the minute that you start living life, and you are not an excuse-maker, you don’t look to blame others or blame the circumstance, you accept responsibility of the things that you can do better right away – like, hey, I can do this better and make the necessary changes – I think that helps you. It not only helps you in football, but it helps you in life.

Hopefully we’re making progress there. I think it’s to be determined starting this week.

Q. You talked about making them uncomfortable. Is that kind of trying to counterbalance all the adulation, the ranking?

BILLY NAPIER: Yeah, yeah. I mean, I think it’s exactly what I’m talking about. I mean, ultimately when you get beat and you go to the locker room and you’re on the bus after the game, you got zero text messages, right? When you win and you play on national…

(Interruption in video stream.)

BILLY NAPIER: …snooze button to some degree just like you guys did this morning.

What I’m saying is that we have to anticipate what is coming. That’s the great thing about the University of Florida, right? We can have an environment like that, we can have a tremendous experience. We’ve also had an environment like that and had bad experiences. It’s magnified here, right?

We’re in a state with 22 million people. We got more beat writers covering our program than any program in the country. We have 500 million living alumni, right? There’s passion here.

They want to tell you all about it when it’s bad, and they want to tell you all about it when it’s good. I think it’s important that we have something that we can stand on independent of that, a process and a system, and we can eliminate the external and say, Hey, am I doing the best I can for the team today?

Q. Along with the fans, how helpful do you think it was having some of those former players, Louis Murphy, Brandon Spikes?

BILLY NAPIER: I think one of the things that we’ve tried to do here upon arrival is get better in all parts of our operation. We wanted to engage former players. I think it’s important.

You really think about this place. Why do we have the passion that we have? It’s because there is a lot of great memories that were made in that stadium. Ultimately the coaches that were here, the players that were here that contributed to that, we want them to come back at the drop of a hat and feel comfortable and be able to do that.

Game day presents that opportunity. I think it’s always awesome for some of that experience, some of that wisdom to impact your team. That can be good and bad, right?

I can speak on behalf of Brandon Spikes. He’s made our team better, partly because he cares about the University of Florida. It’s made him better. It created opportunities for him. It helped him create value for himself. He’s back here doing the right thing and getting his degree. That’s allowed him an opportunity to be around our players and impact our entire organization.

He was here when they were successful, right? I think he can speak about that. I think that’s impactful for our team.

Q. (Indiscernible) Eugene Wilson, and how do you handle the kicking situation this week?

BILLY NAPIER: Yeah, so Trey’s banged up. Nothing long-term. Ultimately the x-ray is normal. I think that it will take him a little bit of time to return.

Now, it’s going to be a pain tolerance deal. It will be to be determined. Could be this week. Could be next week. We’ll give you an update on Wednesday where we’re officially at.

The good thing here big picture I think we’re going to get him back at some point.

The kicker deal, obviously Adam didn’t have it early. Let me say this. I think the protection also contributed to the issue. But I do think Trey did a fantastic job of stepping up within the game.

We’ll go kick ’em as usual this week and create competition, then make a decision going into the game, just like we’re going to do at all the other positions, whether that’s backup quarterback, backup star, lots of positions on our team.

Q. Do you have a gauge yet for how the team has handled the win, the success?

BILLY NAPIER: I like what I saw last night. Then I like what I heard when I went to the leadership group today at 11. I think they’ll have a platform here at 11:30 and 1. We have two team recovery groups. We’ll see where we’re at.

But ultimately the difficult days during the week are Tuesday, Wednesday. That’s when we find out where we’re at.

Q. Tennessee got out pretty quickly, yet that was pretty much all Tennessee did a good bit of the night. The defensive response, what did you see there? I know you don’t like singling guys out, but can you talk about Austin Armstrong’s impact on what we saw?

BILLY NAPIER: Yeah, I think they had a fantastic plan. I do think when you play these teams that are drastically different, you try your best to recreate it. It is kind of like playing a triple option team, right? Early in the game it’s a nightmare, then you get used to it.

Ultimately the big play in that, we just aren’t aligned correctly, not playing the right coverage combination, and it led to a big play.

I think that ultimately the crowd was a factor. I thought we played with really good fundamentals. We got the call in. We had our cleats in the ground. We strike blockers. We played well on the edges of the formations. We covered down the perimeter. We missed a few tackles, but for the most part when space tackles were presented, we did our job.

They got a few big plays, but we survived a few. Ultimately, I mean, I think Austin has done a great job since the day he’s been here. I think this game is a reflection of that, much like Utah was, much like McNeese was.

We have better personnel, I think all parts of that side of the ball are in year two. I think Austin has done a good job of connecting with the players and connecting with the staff.

Q. What do you think about Jordan Castell and the way he played? I don’t know if you saw on film, but what he did with Ja’Keem Jackson, told him to keep his head up?

BILLY NAPIER: Yeah, Jordan, you evaluate players, you recruit players, get to know them, their families. Look, Jordan was a 6’2″, 200-pound kid playing corner that had really good tape. There were questions about whether he was tough, could tackle. We felt like we had enough evidence there. Love his family. His mom’s an incredible lady. Then obviously his dad’s story is really unique there. This kid’s been through some things. He’s got some maturity. He’s had to grow up.

I think when I really knew I thought he could be special is when I went to his school, and you see him in that environment. You see him interact with teachers and administrators. He was a leader, just a guy that had a lot of presence about him.

Showed up in January and has been about his business. Ultimately he’s playing well as a rookie for us. Great play on the deep ball. Most kids panic, they get a PI or… That was impressive.

Look, the guy’s playing partly because he’s mature enough to handle it. He can process, he can communicate, and he has got physical ability. I think he is a future leader, and certainly amongst his classmates he’s well thought of.

Obviously Ja’Keem is out there playing as a rookie. That’s his boy, right? Doing his best to encourage him. Those are good things. Those are healthy things.

Q. How do you handle 260 unread texts?

BILLY NAPIER: Yeah, try to do it as fast as possible (smiling).

Q. Do you get to them all?

BILLY NAPIER: Try to delete them all. That’s what I try to do. Got work to do (smiling).

Q. (Question about attacking the quarterback.)

BILLY NAPIER: I think reality is the right mixture is what you want, right? You want to keep the other team off balance.

Ultimately you can’t do the same thing all the time. I think that’s what we did. We played the right mix of coverage. Look, we played some light boxes in there. Our front is controlling the game. You got to keep ’em guessing. Ultimately I think we did a little bit of that.

Q. Anything on Micah?

BILLY NAPIER: Nothing yet. Just in-house discipline. Outside of that, look, it’s not just Micah. We got staff members that probably need to be disciplined, as well.

No, I think ultimately that’s a teachable moment. It’s an opportunity for us to talk about composure and poise, ego, temper.

Look, football presents an opportunity to teach some of those things, right? It’s not going to be the first time you’re going to be in an altercation. Look, you make a decision like that, we had multiple players that screwed up. They compromised the entire team ’cause you may not be available in the future, whatever the case may be. No different than some guy calls you a name at the local bar on Friday night. Are you going to compromise your wife and kids, make a poor decision?

These things are teachable moments. Ultimately hopefully we do enough on our part to teach ’em.

Q. He’s the only one that threw a punch.

BILLY NAPIER: Obviously, you haven’t watched the TV copy (smiling).


Q. Kingsley coming back, how did that tie things together up front?

RICHIE LEONARD: It was real well having Kingsley back. He’s just such a veteran and experienced player. There isn’t much he hasn’t seen out there on the field. Having a group like we have, it’s great to have a guy like Kingsley with us.

Q. What did he bring? Calm everything down? Make protection calls?

RICHIE LEONARD: Yeah, just kind of his presence. Like I said, he’s a veteran guy. He’s seen a lot of things around here. He’s played a lot of snaps around here, started a lot of games. It’s always nice having that veteran experience next to you.

Q. You get on a roll, score six straight times. You had the big long drive, score four in a row. What is the feeling on that offensive line when y’all get on a roll like that? Nobody can stop us, something like that?

RICHIE LEONARD: Yeah, it’s just a great feeling to be hitting on all cylinders as an offense. A lot of people contribute to the run game, whether that’s receivers doing their job on the edges, quarterback giving the ball to the running back, the running back doing his job.

It’s nice when we’re hitting on all cylinders like that, for sure.

Q. Do you feel like you’re going to dominate the guy across from you when you get on a roll?

RICHIE LEONARD: We try to go into the game with that mindset, whether we’re up 50 or down 50. Our goal on the offensive line is to be dominant, so yeah.

Q. You were part of this team last year. No three-game winning streaks. You have a chance now. How do you handle that?

RICHIE LEONARD: We kind of try to stay away from looking at stuff like that, worrying about winning streaks or records or stuff like that from last year. We’re just worried about the next game, that’s Charlotte, trying to get prepared for them.

Q. Billy mentioned he had 268 messages. What was it like for you? How different was it? How do you not let that get to you?

RICHIE LEONARD: Yeah, no, it was a crazy experience after the game. These are the games that you come to Florida to play in, the big rivalry games. It was great. I loved it. Loved every second of it.

Q. What have you seen from the team in their approach to sustain momentum? Last year you guys weren’t able to capitalize on that.

RICHIE LEONARD: Yeah, I think that was a big point of emphasis for us, maintaining the juice and energy, especially from guys on the sideline. That’s a huge help.

Yeah, it was a big point of emphasis for us.

Q. Coach said last night especially that he could kind of tell it was starting to roll over. Could you expand on that?

RICHIE LEONARD: What did he say? What do you mean by that?

Q. Last night’s meeting, he could tell you were locked in.

RICHIE LEONARD: Yeah, definitely. Another point of emphasis was don’t let this carry over, don’t linger on this Tennessee win too long because we still got to go line up and play Charlotte this week. That’s a talented football team, for sure, so…

Q. (No microphone.)

RICHIE LEONARD: Yeah, Trevor is is electric. Him and Montrell in my opinion is the best 1-2 combo at running back in the country. Those guys make our job easier, so yeah.

Q. 62-yard run. That kind of changed the whole game. If he hadn’t done that…

RICHIE LEONARD: Yeah, like I said, Trevor is a great player. He has the ability to make those big plays like that, hit the home run. So does Montrell, too.

Again, it’s great to be able to block for two great backs like that.

Q. What did it mean for him to give you the baton?

RICHIE LEONARD: It meant a lot to me, letting the offensive line get a little bit of shine right there, those skill guys’ moments. It’s huge, everything for us. It was a great moment for me and Trevor.

Q. I think he said after the game he was going to take you all to dinner. Location or restaurant yet?

RICHIE LEONARD: No, not yet. We talked about it, though. He’s going to do something for us. He got something in the works, that’s what he says.

Q. Have you ever gotten the baton before?

RICHIE LEONARD: I did one time last year I think. It was Nay’Quan who gave it to me early in the season last year. So, yeah, it was fun.

Q. (No microphone.)

RICHIE LEONARD: No, I don’t think I was ready for it at either moment honestly (smiling).

Q. This is the kind of game where practice guys can get in the game later on. Some people question what’s the value of this. Guys who played said it was great to get a chance to get the walk-ons on in there. How important is that, to get these guys some shine?

RICHIE LEONARD: You know, I think it’s really great when it can happen. I think going into the game, that’s not the focus or the goal of the game. The goal is to execute and go 11-11 on all cylinders. If it works out like that, it’s great, I love it, especially seeing guys like Hayden Clem, guys who work so hard for us day in, day out. Them getting an opportunity to get out there, it’s great to see.

Like I said, again, that’s not the goal going into the game or the thought or mindset. It’s just dominate, execute.

Q. What was your perspective on the game and what happened?

RICHIE LEONARD: The Tennessee game?

Q. Yes.

RICHIE LEONARD: It was just a crazy couple seconds right there. It’s the SEC. It’s a Florida-Tennessee game, so…

Q. What did you think about the way your teammates sprung into action?

RICHIE LEONARD: I love it, the way we do that for each other, protecting the quarterback. It was a late hit or whatever. Nobody wanted it to end in that fashion probably on either side of the ball, us or Tennessee.

It’s nice to know that we got his back, he’s got ours.

Q. What do you think you want to take from that?

RICHIE LEONARD: I think we got to learn from it because there’s a fine line somewhere in there. There’s a very fine line. We got to take the good with the bad and learn from our mistakes right there and move forward.

Q. From an O-lineman’s perspective, what does Graham Mertz bring to this team?

RICHIE LEONARD: Just poise. It’s kind of a cliché to say. He acts like a quarterback, walks like a quarterback, talks like a quarterback. It’s great to have him back there. He’s one of the smarter players I’ve ever been around. I like playing for Graham.

Q. You get in a game and everybody is excited. How steady is he on the field?

RICHIE LEONARD: Oh, extremely. Graham is always cool as a cucumber. Up or down, he’s always got the same level of energy or focus. Great to have him with us.

Q. Completed more than 75% of his throws. How nice is that to be able to sustain drives?

RICHIE LEONARD: Yeah, it’s definitely nice to hear that stat line. I just think as long as we do our job and keep him up, I know he’ll make plays for us.

Q. What did you see from the defense that gave you a sense, the spring game, but even before then, during the fall camp, that kind of gave you — 10th in the nation now.

RICHIE LEONARD: Wow, I didn’t know that stat. The defense, they’re so talented. Getting to go against those guys day in and day out, they make us nothing but better. I just love the way they communicate with each other. Hearing that on the offensive side of the ball in practice, how they coach each other up, that’s another big thing.

I see a lot of the older guys coaching the young guys up. We got a lot of young guys that play on both sides of the ball. That camaraderie they have over there, it’s huge.

Q. (No microphone.)

RICHIE LEONARD: Probably top 10. My favorite moment was just winning that game honestly. So yeah.

Q. The fans were booing him.

RICHIE LEONARD: Yeah, I saw that. All good fun. That’s all.

Q. You were sitting on the sideline there. The defense is on the field. That’s when the crowd starts yelling. How loud from your perspective was it?

RICHIE LEONARD: I think that might have been one of the loudest games that I experienced as a player since I’ve been here. I was here at that Auburn game in 2019 as a recruit actually. I hear people always talk about how loud that one is. I think this might be a real close second.

Q. Can you hear yourself think when you’re doing that?

RICHIE LEONARD: No (smiling).


Q. It sounds like you got pretty sick. Sounded like you were pretty miserable.

DEVIN MOORE: Yeah, I just had a bad case of Strep. It took some time to get over it. Really just with the help of training staff, though, I got over it pretty quick, even though it was a bad case.

Q. To get the first interception of your career on that play, what did you feel the significance of that was in the game?

DEVIN MOORE: So, yeah, it definitely was a big play, I’d say. I definitely got to give credit to the D-line, especially big Des. He kind of caused that play to happen. Just being a DB in general, when your D-line gets a lot of pressure, you don’t have to cover for so long, it definitely helps out a lot.

I was just happy to be a part of a play that changed the game. I felt like they brought a lot of energy. A lot of guys on the sideline, we were celebrating, connecting. I feel like it was a big play in the game.

Q. What goes through your head when it’s floating like that?

DEVIN MOORE: Just try to take all of the ball drills we do in practice, all the work we do with our coaches. When you get it in your hands, wherever you got to go to help.

Q. Did you think it was ever going to come down?

DEVIN MOORE: Yeah, eventually it would come down. It did take a good minute. It kind of reminded me of in high school when I used to do kick return. It eventually came down (smiling).

Q. Did you think you were going to take it to the house?

DEVIN MOORE: Yeah, that was the goal. I might need to spend some time with Coach Juluke and the running backs and individual drills. That was definitely the goal.

Q. A lot of younger guys are playing on defense. What kind of energy are they enthusing into the defense?

DEVIN MOORE: Yeah, so because we have a lot more depth this season, just coming in and doing what the older guys do. They set a good example. We just try and follow that, try and help the team any way we can, just help the defense try to be a better defense, the overall team be a better team.

Q. How cerebral do you think this group is in the fact they’re picking up? True freshmen. Pretty hard to adjust to a scheme.

DEVIN MOORE: Yeah, yeah, yeah. It’s definitely a bit of an adjustment from high school, especially coming to a college of this standard.

With the help of the coaches, the leadership of the older guys, that means a lot. They’ve been through it. They’ve got experience. Spending that extra time in the film room, those extra reps on the practice field, it will help you make up that adjustment real quick.

Q. Coach Armstrong, we hear about his energy, how he changed the practice schedule. What is something that hasn’t been discussed about him?

DEVIN MOORE: The guy he is off the field. I mean, he’s like a best friend off the field. When you got a coach that you can connect to off the field, I would say vibe with, we’re going to play that much harder for a coach that you can really connect to.

I feel like that’s the case with any team or any defense, any unit of the ball, when you got a coach that you can connect to.

Q. Do you hang out in his office? Does he text players?

DEVIN MOORE: Yeah, yeah, we got a good group chat. We’ll be texting, be going back and forth in the group chat every day. He’ll send some funny things. Guys on the team like Shemar will send some funny things. Good vibes in the group chat.

Q. Were you a safety in high school?

DEVIN MOORE: I played safety the first two years of high school.

Q. Then you came to corner. What is the transition like? What does Jordan bring?

DEVIN MOORE: So, yeah, I definitely think playing corner, transitioning to safety, it can be a bit of an adjustment. The coverage skills you gain at corner, kind of being on the island, being a lot of man, I think it definitely helps you a lot at safety.

You got to adjust to open-field tackling a little bit more at safety, coming down. Just having the versatility and experience at both really benefits your game a lot.

Q. Is Jordan very cerebral?

DEVIN MOORE: Yeah, Jordan is very versatile. Covers like a corner, tackles like a safety. You can really line him up anywhere.

Q. Having watched the film, could you imagine what it was like to have Joe Milton to have Des lift him up?

DEVIN MOORE: I can’t even imagine that. The 400-plus pounds Des is, I can’t imagine the impact of all that weight coming down on him.

Q. How many text messages did you have? Do you go through ’em and respond to every single one?

DEVIN MOORE: Yeah, I definitely try to. A lot of those text messages, I take it as support. Very appreciative and thankful that I got people around me that like to see me win, like to see the Gators win and support us.

Yeah, I try and take the time to go through all of those, respond, give thanks, all that.

Q. Hundreds?

DEVIN MOORE: Yeah, I can’t really put a number on it. I just try to get around to everybody.

Q. Do you feel like this team’s built to maybe handle success better than it did last year?

DEVIN MOORE: Oh, yeah, for sure. Just in the meetings yesterday, a lot of emphasis was making sure we stay grounded. Last season when we got a bit of success, I feel like it kind of blew our heads up a little bit.

This year we’re putting more emphasis on the approach of, Okay, that happened Saturday, Sunday new week. Let’s get to it. Let’s check the scout, just come out this week ready.

Q. (No microphone.)

DEVIN MOORE: Yeah, so on that play there there wasn’t a stack. We had our defense called. I was locked on the point guy. The stem he gave me, I kind of made sure to maintain my leverage, stay outside on it. When I turned into him, I seen the ball, just made sure they couldn’t get to it.

I got up celebrating. In the process of celebrating, my calf cramped up a little bit on me, but…

Q. The time of possession in the first half, you weren’t on the field a lot. The second half it kind of flipped. How much did maybe being fresh in the first half help you in the second half?

DEVIN MOORE: Yeah, so kind of like what I referred to earlier. Definitely having more depth season helps us a lot. Like you say, we weren’t on the field that much in the first half. Second half just being able to rotate guys, there being no dropoff, that definitely helped us. Helped some guys get some rest. Just come out there fresh.

Q. What have you seen from Scooby?

DEVIN MOORE: Scooby this year, he made dramatic improvement this year. He takes a lot more stuff serious. He’s doing those extra hours, all that work. He was last year, too. He kind of got those tips from Ventrell. Ventrell kind of said that stone, all the little things that Ventrell did Scooby does. You can see it show up on the field for sure.

Q. How important is it when the offense holds the ball for minutes and minutes to the defense?

DEVIN MOORE: Yeah, that’s real important. We’re on the sideline constantly going over what we got the previous drives. Just being able to have that time to collectively as a unit just go over those plays, any slipups we had, make sure to correct those, continue to just look at the packets we have on the sidelines to stay focused, what calls we’re going to get. Even it gives the position coaches time to talk and see what they saw, too.

Q. How did you see what Jordan did after Ja’Keem gave up that touchdown?

DEVIN MOORE: I think that’s great. I mean, for him being so young, both of them being young guys, for him being so young to just showcase that skill, that leadership, let Ja’Keem know he’s still a great player, we going to get this back. That’s a great trait to have.

That just showcases the standard that the older guys set. It’s a really bright future to see, like, I’m showcasing those talents being so young.

Q. Did you see it?

DEVIN MOORE: I didn’t see it. From what you said, that’s a good trait to have, for sure.

Q. How important is it to keep composure so you don’t get anyone out of a future game?

DEVIN MOORE: Yeah, it’s extremely important. Just having the composure to keep it, just being disciplined enough to be smart in those moments even though the stakes are high and emotions are high, just keep your composure is definitely very important because there’s been, like, other teams in the past losing key guys in moments of high emotions and things like that.

Q. How often do you get mad in a football game?

DEVIN MOORE: Oh, I couldn’t even tell you. Yeah, a bunch of times.

Q. I’m sure it happens a lot.


Q. (Question about the altercation.)

DEVIN MOORE: I mean, we kind of as a team just trying to tell Micah we got to keep our composure, be smart in those situations. We weren’t trying to boost that up or anything like that.
