Al Nolen on the tough start to the Big Ten Schedule:
"I looked at the schedule and, you know, I looked at it in a negative light and a positive light. You know, we could end up, you know, having some quality wins right away but also, you know, if we don't take of business we could end up being one and four in the Big Ten possibly. So we really want to get out here and get some quality wins on the road and at home so we can really, you know, establish ourselves and get some momentum going early. "

On recovering from his foot injury:
You know, I'm still working on it. My foot's not 100% and it probably won't be throughout the whole season but I'm just going to keep playing and try to help out the team as much as I can. Hopefully, with treatment and just resting, trying to rest it, it will be up to par.
