QUOTABLE II: "The atmosphere here is unbelievable. It's so neat because obviously Southern California loves winners and they're really starting to win. It's great to see this community. I love the San Diego community. I'm really glad they have something to put their hands on. Coach Fisher is a class act. He treats me like gold. The fans are great. We don't see it where we play. You can't boo. You can't do all that stuff so it's kind of neat because it's a real college atmosphere.
