’s a wild experience talking to all these coaches and general managers. It’s something you can’t explain, you have to go through it yourself.
→What did you tell scouts about the Cotton Bowl?
It was a dumb mistake on my part. Half of them were thinking it was something else (not just missing curfew). I told them I was being stupid, it happened twice. The first day it was about 12 of us, we just felt it’s our last bowl game why not have fun? The second time, it was a dumb mistake on my part. I shouldn’t have left. I was trying to bring in the New Year’s and I got caught out. It’s something I’ve learned from.
→How is your relationship with Coach Gundy?
It’s cool. I still have to talk to him about a few things.
→Do you understand the decision he made?
I understand it. It’s something I shouldn’t have done, he made a decision, that’s his job. It teaches me a lesson, but I really still want to know, ‘Why the whole game?’ But other than that, it’s in the past, I can’t get it back, (so I) just forget it.
