Sorry folks. A day late on these. Better late then never I suppose.
“You have six great plays but then you give up two big plays. I don’t care how good you think you are, it doesn’t matter”
“I started doing [pushups] the week after I was cleared from surgery, and that was 36 weeks ago, and every week I do one more, so I’m up to 36. Reminds me of how far I’ve come”
Chase Pine / Phil Campbell
Pine – (about reading keys) “The coaches tell us small keys, small eyes. Focus on yours”
Campbell – “Seeing it on film and doing it are two different things. You definitely need the practice reps. If you can’t do it at practice how are you going to do it in the game?”
MM Note: Compare Pine’s seeming confidence with Narduzzi’s comments about Pine’s inconsistency. Pine still has a long way to go. Hope the lightbulb goes on this spring or we are going to be seeing a lot more long runs by opposing running backs.
“Naw I wasn’t surprised, I’d seen the coverage so I knew I was going to be open.”
MM Note – Was this against the 1’s or the 2’s? If against the twos well then he damn well better be beating them. Regardless, it’s nice to see how Shocky’s presence has improved each year. We know he’s got the physical tools. He’s got as good a chance to breakout as anyone. Check out this year’s interview versus the previous two springs’.
Last year after spring game:
Spring camp 2018 (true freshman year)
“This defensive line could be very lethal, but we just have to continue putting the work in every day”
“I just didn’t want to get caught from the back”
Same question as Shocky. Highly doubt this was against the 1’s. Still, it’s encouraging to see the cut and the speed. With that being said, I really like how this guy carries himself.
