On getting into a rhythm:
We've practiced a lot and we've lost track of the practices, we just come in day in and day out. We've just to take it one day at a time and keep getting better.
On being better in games than practice last year:
Practice, you know, the way I think, you practice like you play in the game. On the practice field, I'm going to make mistakes, and sometimes you may think a little bit more because you're trying to fine tune things. Make sure you're doing and make sure it's coming natural, but in the game, you let it loose. Whatever you know, you know, and whatever you don't know, you don't know. You just play.
On feeling like he's made progress from last fall to spring to now:
No doubt. There are a lot of things. People think of practice and they expect perfection in practice and there is never going to be perfection, wherever you play. There will be mistakes here and there but at the end of the day, I'm confident in what I do and just want to keep getting and better.
On hitting the ground running:
I think that was the big thing this year and helped us out and helped us as a team. Last year, we didn't know what we were doing, but we were sort of just tip-toeing. This year, there are freshman who are going to play and they have to know what they're doing.
On the quick tempo:
We've created things to pick up the tempo of the offense. Just to try to make it even faster. As an offense, we put in little things to help us out but eventually those little things turn into big things.
On talk of the Heisman Trophy:
To be honest, it's always something. Those are external things that you've just got to put to the side and it's all about winning games. When the team achieves their goals, individuals will be recognized. And that's the way I look at it. Individual things can go away like that and as a quarterback of this team, you have to keep pushing and I don't really worry about stuff like that.
On the advances of the receivers:
Huge advances. Physically, athletically, they all progress every year. But I think mentally is where we've sort of gelled. They know where I need them to be, and with time and gelling, and I know where they need to be.
