Bearcat Insider asked Mick Cronin about Steven Toyloy and his importance to this year's team and Mick said "One thing about Steve Toyloy is he gives you everything he's got. I tell ya, I'm going to miss him, I wish I would have had him for four years. He's a great kid he gives you everything he's got. He's a little hard headed at times but that's what makes him a tough kid. He's a wonderful kid… Effort is never a problem with Steve I think he'll be good enough to play somewhere for some money. I also think he could start for Butch Jones next year, I don't know what position but if I was a quarterback I wouldn't want him rushing me."
Bearcat Insider also talked to Toyloy about his senior season, his goals, and what he is looking to accomplish.
Q: Do you sometimes feel underappreciated by the fans?
ST: Sometimes, but not really it don't matter I just have to do what I do.
Q: Do you think after being through the Big East once it has helped you be prepared for this season?
ST: Ya it did, that first year was crazy, the game is faster, player aren't that much stronger but a lot more talented and as talented as me so I had to learn to compete every night, because you get to play against really good players.
Q: You're known for you defense and rebounding, what do you think it is that makes you so successful in those areas?
ST: Nothing really, you just have to want to do it, that's it, if you don't set your mind to something you're not going to be able to do it.
Q: Coming out of Miami Dade you averaged a double-double; does the lack of touches bother you? ST: It bothers me a little, I do want to touch the ball more but as long as we win it doesn't really matter.
Q: What are some of your goals for your senior season?
ST: Score some more points, grab some more rebounds, play some more defense, win the Big East and compete for a National Championship.
Q: Mick said he could see you making money to play is that something you're looking to accomplish?
ST: Of course, why wouldn't I?
Q: Mick also said you could start on the football team; his exact quote was I wouldn't want him rushing me, thoughts?
ST: I've thought about that a couple times, but I'm not sure, I've never played football before (laughter).
Q: You have two consecutive road games coming about, what do you have to do to get a couple of wins?
ST: Everybody has to come prepared because road games are tougher games. Everyone has to get there mind right.
