KENT TAYLOR: There was so much talk about you guys going to the Orange Bowl â€“ what was your first thought when you saw Sugar Bowl, and you saw Florida?
ADRIAN BUSHELL: Just to get a chance to play against my old team, my old school. Just another opportunity really, got a chance to go out and make a lot of people mad, a lot of people happy and a lot of people satisfied at the same time. Not many people are picking us to win, but we have a chance to go shock the world.
TAYLOR: How much do you keep in touch with Florida players and how much have you talked to them since the matchup was announced?
BUSHELL:Â I got a couple of guys, my roommate actually, that I went to Florida with, Frankie Hammond, but thatâ€™s about it.
TAYLOR: What do you think theyâ€™re thinking about playing Louisville from the Big East?
BUSHELL: I think they think this is another Cincinnati. I feel like â€“ like I said â€“ we have the opportunity to go out and do something that weâ€™ve been working hard towards the whole season. Spring workouts, summer workouts and now going through 12 games of the season to get to play the No. 3 team in the nation â€“ itâ€™s a big opportunity.
TAYLOR: Did you play at all in that 2010 Sugar Bowl?
BUSHELL: I played some on special teams.
TAYLOR: What makes Florida so good?
BUSHELL: Defense, front 7. They have a great defensive line and I think thatâ€™s where the game is going to be won, is in the trenches.
TAYLOR: Is it any easier being an underdog?
BUSHELL: A little less pressure, but you still have to go out and do your job.
TAYLOR: How much buzz has there been around campus?
BUSHELL: The city is definitely excited. More people out in the streets are asking about the football team. Itâ€™s just different around campus.
TAYLOR: Were you disappointed by the turnout at â€œCard Marchâ€ on â€œSenior Day?â€
BUSHELL: I try to not pay too much attention to it. It was â€œSenior Night,â€ I had family in town. We were just trying to send the rest of the seniors out with a win.
TAYLOR: Iâ€™m sure Teddy Bridgewater has impressed you countless times in practice and games, but what did he show you with his performance in the Rutgers game?
BUSHELL: Unbelievable toughness, with the wrist, the ankle, not even being able to take snaps under center. I give him all the credit.
TAYLOR: Having played at Florida with those type of players, there is talk of a Heisman campaign for Teddy â€“ is he that type of player?
BUSHELL: I believe so, the sky is the limit for Teddy. If he continues to work hard, no telling what he can do.
