He's a great guy. We spent a lot of time working on our games in high school. I don't know if we imagined getting to where we (are now), but it's going to be fun to be across the sideline from him.
I'm enjoying football a lot more this year than in years past, ... This is a whole lot more of what I came here for. It's the coaches and the seniors on this team who have created an atmosphere that you want to be around. This is a winning atmosphere.
I think he's back to his normal self. He's real competitive all the time. He doesn't like to be looked off. As a quarterback, you want to see him thrown the ball every single down, regardless of what the coverage is. I feel like he's getting back to where he needs to be.
We had run that earlier and got a critical first down, ... I think that defensive end learned from his mistake.
It's a long season, ... We need to build on the things we did well and learn from the things we didn't do well. Guys were making plays that maybe they didn't know they could make. There's no reason we can't keep doing that the rest of the season.
Everybody wants to know how bad it is, and it's not as bad as you think, ... I don't think there's anything that could keep me off that field on Saturday. I can't make a fist, but as long as I don't have to punch anybody, I'll be fine.
That's the game of football. That's what you call momentum. We weren't able to get it back. It's an entire group loss, offensively, defensively and special teams.
It definitely slowed down this weekend, ... Coach Harris prepared us all week so I could look at their defense and get us in the right play against their looks, front and coverage. The game is slowing down when you start to notice tendencies.
This will definitely help us out confidence-wise, ... But I remember being at Washington State last year after getting our fourth win of the season. That was a confidence booster at the time, but things didn't pan out the way we expected. We didn't achieve our goals.
There's so much more energy, ... There's so much more life. You get more attention from friends and relatives, from people on the street. That's why I came to Stanford For the chance to be proud of what we're doing here and where we're going.
