Sinorice Moss (1:27 PM)
How's everybody doing, let's get started!
Mike: Miami, Florida
How much do you talk to your brother and what kind of advice does he give you?
Sinorice Moss (1:27 PM)
I talk to my brother every night. His advice to me is to stay focused and give 100 percent at all times, in football and in class.
Hey Sinorice who's faster in the 40 Santana or you? Hurricanes all the way baby!
Sinorice Moss (1:28 PM)
Santana ran a 4.28, this past summer I ran 4.30.
Bill (Philly, PA)
Yo Moss, I got tickets to the Orange bowl. Where should i go when im not watching the game? Ill have a couple days to kill.
Andrew (Cleveland, Ohio)
Your brother was a star at Miami! DId you have any doubts about going to Miami because of this? Or, was that not a factor and you would have been a Cane regardless?
Sinorice Moss (1:29 PM)
South Beach. Wet Willy's. You can chill. You can see a lot of people, celebrities and football players.
Dan (Orlando, FL)
How do you rate Kyle's performance this year and how good can KW be in the near future? Good luck against GA Tech and GO CANES!
Sinorice Moss (1:30 PM)
Kyle is progressing since Week 1. He has really stayed focused. Coming together, we're doing our best to let him know we have his back. He's doing what he has to do what he can to be the best he can. The sky's the limit for him.
Sinorice the offense has been running really well the past few games. What needs to be done to get to the ACC championship at this point? Go Canes!
Sinorice Moss (1:31 PM)
The same thing we've been doing. Going out and competeing and progressing as we have. Everything's been gelling. We just have to stay focused.
Sinorice, What was the best moment for you this year, playing your last year at the U. Also what are your hopes for the NFL are you going to the Combine, or is it to early to tell.
Sinorice Moss (1:33 PM)
One of my best moments this year was in the 4th game. We played Temple and I caught a pass against and went for 92 yards for a touchdown. It was a great opportunity to do that. I'm just working hard now to get ready for the NFL. As of right now, I will be going to the combine.
Sinorice!!!! What do you think about the rap song that some of your teammates put out? 7th floor crew or something like that.
Sinorice Moss (1:34 PM)
That's something that they did like two years ago. A couple of the freshmen and older guys made a rap song. It was a really cool song.
Ethan, Charlotte, NC
What is the Defence doing to stay pumped up after that incredible 6 Turnovers against Wake Forest?
Sinorice Moss (1:35 PM)
They're staying focused and working hard. Coach is never going to let the guys take a day off. They're just going to try and stay consistent. Going against these guys every day, all you see is greatness across the board. They're working hard to be the best defense.
JONATHAN T GREENVILLE, SC
WHAT IS THE BEST DEFENSE THAT YOU HAVE PLAYED AGAINST THIS YEAR? (GO CANES!!)
Sinorice Moss (1:35 PM)
The first game, Florida State. I'll probably have to give it to them. They ran around and did what they had to do to top us.
Hey Sinorice, I heard u can sing is that true?
Sinorice Moss (1:36 PM)
Yes. That's something I've been doing since i was a young boy. I'm always singing. I'm singing all day. It's something I like to do.
Alvin (Boston, Mass)
I know Miami still has 2 games that cant be over looked, But how much do you guys think about getting revenge against Flordia State.
Sinorice Moss (1:37 PM)
It's on our minds a lot. A lot of the guys can't wait for that opportunity. We have two games left and stay focused, and it's always on our minds.
Jarett (Tallahassee, FL)
Sinorice, you've done a great job this season catching everything that's thrown your way. But a lot of the younger WR's have struggled catching the football. What do you and the WR's do in practice to improve your hands? Do you practice with machines or mostly with the QB's?
Sinorice Moss (1:38 PM)
Both. We have a drill called the jug drill. Then also we have the QB's throw the ball all day in practice. Then we stay later and run routes that we messed up on in practice and catch balls.
What NFL reciever do you try and model your game after? What team is your pick to win it all in the NFL.
Sinorice Moss (1:39 PM)
I model myself after my brother. We have the same body types and speed and way we run routes. I think the Colts might take it all. They have a strong team.
Sinorice..big time Canes fan..thanks for beating down Va Tech!...do you have a fav NFL team that you maybe hope drafts you?
Sinorice Moss (1:40 PM)
San Diego Chargers. There's something about California. I've been dreaming about California since I was a kid. Tomlinson is a great back and having Drew Brees throw me the ball would be great.
How do you relax yourself before a big game?
Sinorice Moss (1:41 PM)
Listen to slow music. R&B. I just listen to that. I don't like to listen to the hard rap where I get too pumped up. I listen to the slow jams and make sure I stay on top of my game.
Matt (Clifton Park, NY)
Sinorice, congrats on your season thus far! I was curious, from a WR perspective, what do you feel is the biggest difference for the team with Wright at QB this year? Go Canes!
Sinorice Moss (1:42 PM)
His confidence in the team. He has a tremendous confidence in himself and the team. Everyone sees that. It's amazing how we do some stuff in games and how everyone gels together.
Drew: Dallas, TX
Who would you rather face given the opportunity, Texas or USC?
Sinorice Moss (1:43 PM)
USC. I'd love to play against the Trojans.
Mat (Scottsdale, AZ)
Are you in favor of a playoff?
Sinorice Moss (1:43 PM)
No. Some of the best teams might fall too soon when thinking about a playoff. Now a days anything can happen in a college football game.
How's your little nephew? I remember seeing him at the games when I was UM and he was the cutest thing?
Sinorice Moss (1:44 PM)
He's doing great. He's 5. He's talking and running real fast. He lives in Washington with his mom and his dad.
Whos the fastest Cane this year? Are you fasted than Hester?
Sinorice Moss (1:45 PM)
Me and Hester never raced against each other. He has great speed also, but we've never raced against each other.
What personal/career goals have you set for yourself to accomplish in the next 10 years?
Sinorice Moss (1:46 PM)
I plan to be a successful NFL player. I have many dreams and goals of acting and starting a singing career. I'm getting a degree in criminology, so I've thought of being a detective also.
Kyle (Austin, TX)
There were people that seemed surprised by the way you guys took it to Va Tech. It appeared to me going in that you guys had a much more complete team. How do you approach a game against a team that is getting that type of attention and is undefeated?
Sinorice Moss (1:47 PM)
You have to approach it like any other game. That's how we approach it in Miami. We went in and started fast and finished fast. We went out and played Miami football.
Jimmy Dallas, TX
Was there any doubt Miami would be the school you attended. What other considerations. Would have love to see you here with Vince Young
Sinorice Moss (1:48 PM)
I thought about going to Florida or FSU. But once Spurrier left, I crossed them off the list. In my heart, I always knew I was going to be a Hurricane.
Sean (Charlottesville VA)
What worries you most about UVa in two weeks?
Sinorice Moss (1:49 PM)
Nothing really worries me. They're a good football team. It's giong to be a hard fought game. We're just going to focus on doing what we need to do to beat those guys.
Being a small receiver do you feel that you have to make more big plays than other receivers?
Sinorice Moss (1:50 PM)
Yes I feel like that. They look at my size and say I'm too short to play receiver. I play with my heart. I have to go out there and make big plays. But I have to go out there and make plays whether I'm big or small. I use my speed and heart to show those guys I can make any play they need me to make.
If You had the chance would you stay here another couple of years?
Sinorice Moss (1:51 PM)
Of course. No one ever wants to leave Miami once you're a part of the program. I'd love to be able to stay and help the program another couple of years.
scott: ny, ny
How many hours a week do you spend on football practice and games?
Sinorice Moss (1:52 PM)
Do you really want to know? I wake up 5:30-6 every morning for meetings. Two to six is all football. Then go home and study and do it all over the next day.
My brother is a huge Canes fan and he was at the Va Tech game. He said he got goosebumps there just bieng in the stands. Do you ever get goosebumps before a game?
Sinorice Moss (1:53 PM)
Actually I don't. I really don't. I just go out there and just think about the game itself. It's a game I like to play. I just think about the team we're facing. I get real pumped and psyched to play college football.
madden or NCAA and ps2 or xbox?
Sinorice Moss (1:54 PM)
I like the ps2. I'm not really a game guy. I don't play it as much. Kyle Wright likes to play and I just sit around and watch them play it.
abraham san diego
who is the hardest working player on offense and defense ?
Sinorice Moss (1:55 PM)
The whole team. We all work hard. We're out there working hard on both sides of the field. I really can't pick out one particular guys who's outdoing everyone.
Sinorice Moss (1:55 PM)
Thanks for the questions. Go 'Canes!
