It was a coverage we were working on all week. When they got into three-receiver sets, I was sitting outside that third receiver, so any time we've got an out route, I can jump it.
I always stand up on the bench. I'm waiting to see Brady do something. It's fun to watch them.
I tried to watch everyone from Mike Tyson to Marvin Hagler to de la Hoya to (Felix) Trinidad.
I think to the outside people, it's not what they expected, but it is what we expected.
That's our team. We're way too competitive. We're not just going to, as coach says, 'Slap it out there.' We're going to go out there, and plays are going to be made, people are going to be hit.
This is a BCS game. That other stuff has nothing to do with us. (This year), there is a lot of maturity with the guys. Coach, with his experience in the NFL, gives us that extra edge.
As a defensive guy, you're just happy to get the ball in your hands any chance you get. I'm not this great physical specimen 6-feet, 205 pounds, so I just try and make people miss and run away from them.
We are a little uneasy but the secondary will make plays. After we get settled in you will see that we make plays.
Coming into the Big House and getting a win shows we can play anywhere with anybody.
I saw the hit and I saw the ball go flying. I got a little excited but it was premature and I knew another play was coming.
Eighty percent of the plays against us last year went for 2 yards or less. It was the big plays that killed us. If we can cut down on the big plays, we're going to be a lot more dominant defense.
That's only one-third of the game. I'm pretty sure their offense and our defense are pretty important, too.
It doesn't matter who we're facing next week. We're going to have to get better. I don't think this is going to diminish our confidence. We're going to come back and show our true character.
He ripped us apart. He told us what he was feeling. He didn't care if we listened or took it to heart. He was going to tell us what he had to say. Almost everyone on the team took it to heart. It was motivating, coming from somebody who had had his success.
I don't care who my coach is as long as we're 2-0.
They went with their judgment and you can't blame them.
I never liked baseball. Too much sitting around for me.
