TALLAHASSEE, Fla. - Postgame quotes from head coach Randy Edsall following Maryland's game at Florida State.

Opening Statement:

“Not really much to say today.  We weren’t very good; Florida State’s a very good team.  I take full responsibility for this.  We didn’t play well offensively, defensively, special teams.  And we didn’t coach as well as we needed to today.  I know the guys in the locker room; I know who they are and I know the resolve that we have and we will be back and we will look at this and get better.” 

On Quarterback C.J. Brown:

“C.J. has a concussion … we will evaluate him further tomorrow to see where he’s at and go from there.”

On the hit on C.J. Brown:

“I’d rather make no comment on that at this point in time.  I know what I was told by our coaches but I have not seen it myself on film and I probably won’t have any comment after that because all of these things are in the hands of the conference.  I’m sure we will have them take a look and it we would just go from there.”

On back-up quarterback Caleb Rowe:

“I think Caleb went in and did some good things but as I told our team afterwards – we are not a one man team, it’s unfortunate that injuries happen here and we feel bad for C.J. but what has to happen is when somebody goes down everybody has to step up not just the person who is going to replace that injured person.  Everybody has to step up; guys on offense have to step up, guys on defense have to step up more, we as coaches have to do more, special teams has to do more and we didn’t get that today.”

On Florida State taking away the run:

“If you can’t run the ball that makes it tough.  That was one of the match-ups I was concerned about coming in to the game – you know – our offensive line against them.  But again, if you have got to go – and they made us one dimensional – give them credit – it makes it very, very difficult.” 

On Florida State’s Jameis Winston:

“He’s an outstanding football player.  We had him a couple of times; one of the things we worked on all week was to tackle him low, wrap his legs, and we didn’t do that, we were up high.  He made some really good plays and as he started to come out of there (the pocket) our eye discipline in the secondary wasn’t very good.  We looked back at the quarterback instead of plastering on the receivers and they got some big plays that way.  And we didn’t do a good job on third down.  Third down we were very, very poor on third down.  All around it was not a good day.”

On how you move on from this game:

“Well, we will go back and watch the film tomorrow.  Once we get through the film tomorrow and make the corrections we will move forward to Virginia.  This game is over now; the only thing that we can do is watch film and learn from it and correct the mistakes and make sure those things don’t happen again.  And move forward.  You’ve got to have a short memory in this …24 hours later you have to move on and that’s what we are going to do.  They (our players) know they didn’t play well.  Those kids are smart enough to understand.  We will look at it and move on.  We can’t dwell it.  This was one game of five that we played.  This one is over with; we will learn from it just like the other ones and now we move onto the next one”
