All right thanks to a former Oregon defensive coordinator Miguel DOD pretty frank conversation with him was like him very thoughtful. -- back to the players' side here pac twelve media day I USC quarterback Cody Kessler has sat down this year. I see -- -- -- yards last year twenty touchdowns not too bad good -- are things different now with the new to the coaching staff in place. Galveston. You know different -- -- -- for us on the as a team last year and reveals a lot of adversity you know it could Santos have gone on so. On the coaches and houses and at the newness. Because our senators don't know who Romeo he's come in these guys would buy into the system sort of believed him in and we had to get to face them springs Maryland courtroom -- Typical let's that you come in UN way to pull very highly recruited him in the top quarterbacks the country come to USC. Feed off that great year with Barkley and then it just. Didn't really happen to give a lot of media scrutiny there and kind of people point fingers in the fire Lincoln stuff. How hard was that for you as as a young player to just kind of have that be your first experience. Yeah knows there was very difficult -- -- season you know I said in not only was accomplished going -- I was season's first two weeks of you know the regular season -- I was. That was tough to split time you know during game when my focus was trying to win a -- -- on -- game you know so as. It was difficult for me but you know after awhile I forgot and things after you are finally got my opportunity to play a full game in and be doing. You know we went up the starting job I thought things are -- -- got more comfortable. On the and then the next thing you know Coach Kiffin was let go some -- after another thing your army and then coach or to go over to the great job and -- the end of the season to let him go solos as very very typical season since the -- seemingly focused but. On these guys hundreds of -- -- of that the -- some seniors that they can call meetings about and you coaches. On the -- just a player meetings in and realizing notices did this business you know you never know because -- good for the players. If you were on the inside beat beat on the outside it sounded like a lot of the reports were that lot of the guys wanted. But coach coach runs day you know you're happy now starts here everything. That's all over but it was -- push from the players for for a push on to get that job. Yeah I mean it was an even have a wasn't gonna -- jobs is still young staff at some point and announced it yeah yeah I mean he did. I mean what coach -- differences -- amazing and became man and he took -- -- through into. And it's pretty much in -- written off for the rest of the country in and we. And turn things around and ended up going into games of the season. Most of pro government about six and you know Lou we're very thankful for what he didn't Romulo person. Image in that what did he do that may seem like even tourism. It was. Maybe bad enough as the right word but it was there was some friction enough that maybe anybody could have come in in. It was a lighter load wants lame Ethel what was or something that it specifically that I think in the tighter turned. I just think Lewis is sick because so bill that are known god guys you know it's where Jesus is -- one went for a new one clip from. On the not a -- -- has given into a vs you know there's a different feeling between -- and you know also forever grateful Coach -- knew he gave me my opportunity to do this sort of finally bit. Yeah -- console came in in January football fun again I think was the main thing you're made of fun for us again. It felt less like mr. -- mostly to jobs and more right but Purdue has an hour but we're accused of experience. I don't buses. The dual threat is that appropriate term for you. I mean yeah a more like I've got to show that I can do outsource right now I'm ho -- just from Arizona watching film but. You know that's because we have the post office I was never under an -- against appointments. He's always -- -- heard that the quarterback competition to do you with the guys. More mobile and now moves are coming in. How much of that is -- -- clear roles in this offense you've been at the opera. I'm I'm excited doing our budget in high school that we don't have to move around run on the eve wasn't designed run -- so drawn out of the pocket and at some broke down taken off. You know we can do a lot more this often. Those are things are showing -- would. Bass Wal-Mart whole time in -- and that's why in high school and middle school and that's one reason sort recruit who Washington used as my criticism. On some now it's -- kind of finally showed a little bit and then. You used my feet to Mormon settlers policy you were you considering you don't -- and -- my number jas is goes -- down the SE most of them. That's gonna finally gotten because -- have -- a good job you can laugh and -- as big government have to. This is a USC quarterback Cody Kessler grip pac twelve media day. Parents hitting eighty the fan -- you as a loaded with talent. That means of not as deep as years past because it thinks is anything but give me a couple of names you become a nightly although about. Williams build up but I yard. -- buck Allen now -- -- it -- it got to came on last year it was it was where is this. I think everybody we never got a chance you throwing an opportunity in meets argumentative. I think the cool thing about -- like there's a lot of names we have. Like you know George farmer and his -- -- Mitchell. Ticker blog goes mainlanders Rodgers is for names and receivers. That have always kind of been you know overshadowed by guys like Robert Woods and mark he's the Nelson. Who now this year with mark he's being gone and those alarming perhaps I thought you know so I think. Some of those guys I've ever opportunity being number two number three guy and step up and make a huge impact and down there's also -- confession and I've seen that. We've been worked with over the summer I mean do your job. It's. Considering -- and this. -- second walk through that apology it's yeah it's easy. -- is that you have these national championships. Part is that the same note it seems like SC just sells itself that it really -- since there's very few programs that. I felt like -- for gimmickry -- -- out mostly cut you out as love places and and you see it errors is that while I mean this this this tradition -- -- -- they -- behind it. You know everything they've done. You know hide the bars -- senate by guys from your harmony is passed on this awesome you know it's really cool feeling you know that. You're playing for you know who have played before you run you're representing them. On the -- little more pressure on you to succeed. And notes it's going to cylinders so expectations always I would think JUST sanctions or whatever and that's over now let that be to Italy led to me is that. The goal every year yeah I mean her right arm and focus on his first statement. You always materials nuclear. They want to win their division you know for consumers to -- him to fourteenth. But you are right now for example camping in infancy and then I'm going from the. I'd Abbas wants this to be more social media savvy we -- you know what that means social means youth in you know -- -- -- -- -- -- that so yeah do you mind. A little bit of a stealthy. And -- vote Obama. Are the only treatment that costs are okay but a deterrent they -- -- if you don't mind and murdered -- a pride. Take a look Cody Kessler USC version -- the are coming up next we're gonna move on to -- cal looks like their coach Sonny dykes is hanging around and that will talk to him also actress Anderson from Yates now. -- in the -- Larry -- markets Mario honesty sake Derek Malone all still to come. Hear from actual -- --
