Oklahoma State's Zac Robinson loves contact. Mike Gundy says he likes that quality in a quarterback — but it does make him nervous. By NATE BILLINGS, THE OKLAHOMAN
How I do what I do
Zac Robinson explains what it's really like when you're working the dirty job of taking a hit. "I've always liked contact. I enjoy hitting people. I enjoy getting hit, for some reason, most of the time. Sometimes you take some pretty good shots. But I like getting hit, I like the contact. That's why I play. "The hit I took when I got the concussion against Texas A&M — that was really the only hit that I took where I really didn't know what was going on and stuff like that. Other than that, you've got so much adrenaline going during the game, you hardly even feel it. "I'd rather see the hit coming, because you can at least brace yourself for it. Blind-sided, that's no good. "I look at (being a running quarterback) as an advantage. Anytime you can hurt a defense by pulling it down and picking up eight or 10 yards, it puts that much more pressure on them.”
