Example text

Out west, I hit up UCLA and USC. I had to make single trips for a few, like Miami and Texas A&M, because of practice date changes. Another huge issue was transportation. The only way to pull off this jammed-up schedule and to allow for total freedom and flexibility of time with each school was to fly private. For example, at LSU Les Miles let the assistant coaches take the night off to take me to dinner at Sammy’s. We ate more crawfish than I thought humanly possible. I was having a blast shooting the breeze with these guys, and the last thing I needed hanging over my head was a flight time to catch.

Kansas: They lose a lot on defense but have lots of offensive power. 15. BYU: Very well coached and powerful. 16. Arizona State: Experienced QB and solid coaching staff. 17. Texas: Will receivers step up for Colt McCoy? 18. Illinois: Can they build off Rose Bowl appearance? 19. Oregon: Second year for offensive coordinator Chip Kelly. 20. Tennessee: Time to get back to business. 21. South Florida: QB Matt Grothe is a playmaker/ leader. 22. Penn State: Lots of potential with skill and good linemen.

It was like being on a victory tour. Each day and each game was more than a dream come true. I’ve said many times that I was lucky to have played in the real NFL. I was a young pup playing with guys like Steve Nelson, John Hannah, Steve Grogan, Stanley Morgan—men who were a part of the vintage days of the NFL. I’ll never forget the day I walked in the Patriots locker room and there was this veteran sitting at his locker smoking a cigarette. What? I was shocked. I’d always heard that if you smoked, you couldn’t be an athlete.
