Definitely excited. Can't wait to play Kansas and everybody else.

That injury happened at Kansas, a high ankle sprain, could you tell right away?

Oh, yeah. I felt it when I went down, felt it crack and they said the bone shifted, so I immediately knew what it was. I tried to walk on it, and that night, there was no walking on it or anything. It took me awhile, I was in a cast for a couple of months, so it took me awhile to even walk again.

What was it like watching some of those games late in the year?

It was awful. The worst was that game after Kansas, against Iowa State. Losing to Iowa State the year before, I wanted to be out there. But I came to the game, sat in the stands for the first half and had to leave, it was too hard to watch. The other hard ones were the OU and Kansas State games, those are the games you love to play in, so sitting at home and watching on TV was pretty difficult.

What did you learn from being on the sidelines?

It was a very humbling experience. It could be gone tomorrow. I could go out there in practice today and it could be over. Just the wrong move or the wrong step, anything, so you have to have a backup plan. Tell all these kids out there that you have to have a backup plan.

Your initial thoughts on new offensive coordinator Mike Yurcich?

I've definitely been impressed. Seeing the numbers he put up at that level, I'm excited to see the numbers he can put up at a Division I level

Josh Stewart kind of took the leap when you were out. What have you seen different in him?

He's been that same little kid Josh Stewart that I met a long time ago. He's very humble, doesn't say much, you'll never hear about any of his stats, I'm not even sure he knows his stats. Just a real humble kid.
