    What drew you to Indiana University?
    IU stuck with me through the thick and the thin. At the end of the day, God placed my heart here. It's a blessing and I'm thankful to be here.

    You've got 24 TDs entering today, already ranked in the top 10 and a chance at cracking the top 5 all-time at IU. Talk about leaving a legacy here.
    It's wonderful. I wouldn't be able to score without my offensive line. I give big ups to the O-line, and to Coach Wilson for trusting me.

    Today is the third game of your final collegiate season. Has it sunk it yet that this is your last go-around?
    Yes, it has. I don't get these games back, so I'm cherishing every moment of it.

    You gave props to your teammates and coaches earlier, but what personally makes you successful on the field?
    Watching the film, practicing hard. Outwilling and outmanning my opponent. Being better than the next man.

    As one of the jokesters on the team, besides you who is the funniest guy on the team?
    Zek (Isaiah) Roundtree, because he always has a good attitude and he's always trying to make other people laugh. I have to give it to Zek Roundtree.

    Which helmet is your favorite?
    The red with the Block I on it. It's old school and we're big on tradition here. As the state school, we put the big `I' on the helmet; and at the end of the day you play for the `I' on the helmet representing your state.
