DAYTONA BEACH - Selected player quotes from Sunday's Bethune-Cookman football media day at Municipal Stadium.

Wide Receiver Eddie Poole and quarterback Jackie Wilson on having three offensive coordinators in three years: Both had an identical response: "Doesn't matter. It's the same offense."

Running Back Isidore Jackson on being a 1,000-yard rusher: "It'd be nice, but it wouldn't define me. I'd rather see us rush for 2,000 as a group."

Former quarterback David Blackwell on converting to wide receiver:  "I love it. There's a lot more running. It's been an easy transition."

Linebacker Jarkevis Fields: "We have guys on d-line pushing everybody. Losing guys like Ryan Davis and Reggie Sandilands is motivating us."

Safety and Daytona Beach native D.J. Howard: "I remember tailgating as a kid coming to B-CU games and watching (Jacksonville Jaguars DB) Rashean Mathis play...The more you know about a defense, the better you play. The secondary is looking good."

Offensive tackle Terrance Hackney: "We have a family mentality on the o-line. Everyone has a job to do. I prefer run blocking...We have different things we're keeping a tally of, and at the end of the season, the player with the most pancakes blocks goes to IHOP and the one with most rib shots gets a side of ribs. Not a bounty thing, though."

Defensive tackle Harold Love III: "We're holding each other accountable. We're not relying on certain key guys. Everyone needs to know the playbook and needs to know their role. People have to step up at the right time. I'm dealing with this humidity the best I can, being from an area [Oregon] where it rains a lot."

Junior place kicker Sven Hurd: "I'm working on my steps, driving through the ball and keeping my head down. The goal is to be more consistent."
