"It's night and day. I pretty much fully understand what we're doing as an offense, and understand all my reads. All it is now is just getting reps in scrimmages, and getting comfortable with the game speed, and with the linemen flying by."
Was the adjustment helped by all the action in the spring?
"I got so many reps in the spring, and I was playing so much, I don't think it was too big of a jump. Our offense during the spring is simplified, so during the fall we have more to learn. I can grasp most of that stuff pretty easily. It's not too big a jump."
You're taking the second-team offense against the first-team defense. How impressive are they?
"The defense is just ridiculous. Our D-line's going to be nasty. The team speed's just great. Our secondary's looking a lot stronger, too."
You've stayed after practice the last couple of days, working on snaps with John Frady. Is that more for you, or for him?
"He's never played center, in his whole life. He just picked it up this year. We're having a little trouble on goal-line, with our snaps, because he's got a noseguard right over him. When you have a noseguard, it's tough for the center to get the snap and block his man. We're just working it out after practice."
Have any of the second-team receivers stood out?
"I think Chauncey (Stovall) and Chris Davis are both ridiculous. Chris Davis is pretty much the prototypical Peter Warrick-type player, maybe with a little more vertical speed. And Chauncey Stovall, like I've said before, plays just like Tamarick Vanover. Vanover and Warrick are two decent receivers." "
