      “It’s really good to get game one under the belt and get the victory.”

      Says they did some good things in all three phases, especially special teams.

      On Anthony Richardson: “It’s tough to single out any one thing.”

      Stoops said his arm and passing ability stands out the most because everyone knows about his legs, but he can zip it with his arm.

      On Ricky Pearsall: Says it reminds him of a few transfers they’ve brought in.

      “Ricky’s definitely a guy who’s polished at this point.”

      On Billy Napier’s 17-3 record in one-possession games: “I haven’t paid attention to that stat like you have… Something that comes to mind is how smart of a play-caller he is.”

      Says he’s not going to take unnecessary risks, which makes him a good play-caller.

      On his own success in one-possession games: Says there’s a belief in the program that they can make big plays, which comes from staying in the moment and finding ways to win.

      On the sacks given up on Saturday: “Without questions, it’s the most visible (issue) to the naked eye.”

      Said a lot of it had to do was communication issues rather than guys being beat on the line.

      On prepping Will Levis: Said they will throw a lot of different things at him (blitz packages, coverage schemes, etc.) due to just how fast SEC defenses are.

      On the difference between last season and this season for Florida: Says they do look different, obviously, but he can’t remember specifics due to constantly game-prepping for different teams. Says Napier’s offense stands out the most.

      On tackling: Says they had good success against Miami (OH), but the challenge is bigger against Florida. “Great tackling comes from great positioning on the football and great team defense.”

      That concludes Stoops’ availability.
