On his leadership in the huddle:
"No, it doesn't have to do with constantly pumping guys up, it is demanding the best out of them. They are good and so it is giving them the confidence that they can and build on."
On Boise State and what a win would mean to the Beavers:
"They are a good team, they are going to be physical and will always be in their spots. We need to stick to our plan and make less mistakes then they do. Obviously it would be a huge win, especially against a good team like that, especially against Boise. They're good and we know that and it would be a good confidence booster."
On what he learned in the last game and what he wants to work on:
"Trusting the pocket and delivering strikes to receivers. I left a couple high. Usually I know exactly what mechanical mistake that I made (on a bad throw). I think when you get to your redshirt junior year you know a lot about yourself and how to fix things, especially in games."
On his first game at Reser Stadium last week:
"First game was electric and fun, the Beaver Walk is something that I will always remember, that first one."
