Jay Davis Transcript
What are your overall impressions of the spring and today's game?
I think, for the most part, things went pretty well. It's tough going up against the #1 defense in the nation, but we learned a lot this spring and we're ready to move on. It's a learning process and we don't play a game tomorrow. We play on down the line and we'll be fine.
Were there any major adjustments with Coach Trestman coming in to run the offense?
No, not too much. We're still running our same stuff…running what we're good at. It's not too different. It's just different terminology.
Did Coach Amato naming you the #1 quarterback give you a lot of confidence going into the fall?
Well, no. Marcus Stone obviously looked good today. We're still pushing each other. I'm not going to be too comfortable with it.
Have any receivers surprised you this spring?
Brian Clark had a great spring. Sterling Hicks, Lamart Barrett and, of course, Tramain Hall… all those guys look good.
Are you going to stay here this summer?
Yes. About 90% of the team will stay. We'll have time to work and we've got a long way to go, but we don't play for a while. So, we'll be all right.
Is there a different mental approach this year with you coming in as the starter?
No, I don't think so. I think now I know what I need to work on a little bit more and hopefully that will help me. It's the same approach, though.
Do you have to remind yourself that you're going against the #1 defense and it's not always going to be like this?
Yeah, it gets frustrating and it's tough out there, but you've just got to fight through it.
What is your evaluation of yourself and what you need to work on?
Well, you always want to work on arm strength and footwork. One major thing that I've got to improve is to just manage the game better. Knowing what I have to get on first and 10, and second and short. Just really being in control of every situation in the game.
