Q&A with UM quarterback Ryan Williams

Quarterback Ryan Williams was unable to speak with reporters following Tuesday's practice, but took the time to answer some questions left behind by the media on Wednesday.

> How much are you looking forward to the scrimmage on Saturday at Milander Park in Hialeah and why?

"I’m really looking forward to the scrimmage. It will be the first time that we can get out there in a game-like situation and see how the offense is coming together. Are we keeping score? I want to get out there and win, beat the defense."

> What are you looking to accomplish during the scrimmage, both personally, and as an offense?

"To go out and execute each play and not have any mental errors or turnovers. To see how the offense competes.

> What would make the scrimmage successful for you?

"A win."

> Will it be tough considering the depth issues at receiver?

"No. We have a whole group of offensive skill players who have stepped up, including walk-ons."

> How have you seen freshmen Preston Dewey and Gray Crow improve since they've gotten here?

"They are learning the offense and getting a feel for the speed of the game."

> How much are you looking forward to getting out there in front of fans, friends and family?

"I’m excited to get out there. It will be fun to be able to give the fans to see how far the team has come since last year with a bunch of new faces."
