Q&A with Tyriq McCord

Read on to see what junior defensive end Tyriq McCord was saying following Sunday's practice.

How much bigger have you gotten?

I've gained 10 more pounds since the end of the season.

How much do you weigh now?

"I weigh 240. I've been eating a lot of pizza, peanut butter and jelly sandwiches, and muscle milk," said McCord.

Do you feel more explosive than you were last year?

"I do feel a lot more explosive. I'm back at rush again. Switching positions. I feel a lot more mobile. Playing at rush. There's not a lot of room for error there," said McCord.

Tyriq how much does it help having Denzel back?

"A lot. He's very vocal. When he comes on the field his presence is known he changes the game. If Denzel has a bad day we all had a bad day. He's so motivated he never had a bad day. That's what we appreciate about him. He never has a bad day. He makes everyone around him better," said McCord.
