Before the news broke concerning the announcement of the impending NCAA sanctions, Al Goldens Miami Hurricanes began preparing for their next game against Wake Forest by trying to block out the outside noise of being ranked seventh in the BCS as well as the mega-matchup with BCS No.?2 Florida State a week from Saturday.
I wouldnt say [there has been] slippage, but its a challenge, Golden said of blocking out the distractions.
There is cheese all around them. Dont take the cheese. Dont take the trap. You have a guy here or there that all of a sudden theyre seduced by it. They want to hear about it. They want to talk about it. It has nothing to do with the outcome. Doing your job, preparing, asking questions, being engaged, doing your role all those little things, thats what we need to focus on. Thats what we need leadership for.
