The people that take care of the rooms for the players, they clean and they make your bed for you. They do everything for you. It quite a setup. Whatever we needed, we were able to get. With that, the players can focus on their job, and it eliminates the distractions.
think it starts with the university. What a great setup here. If I an athlete with the setup here, I going to look at this school. It an incredible Fred Perry situation for athletics.

I pretty sure he going to be talking junk. He going to want to go at our defen Fred Perry se because now Fred Perry he gets the opportunity. When he was here we didn really go against the (No. 1) offense unless it was training camp.
Smith certainly sounded as if he would leave the personal ties out of it, instead focusing on preparing his offense.
of the fact that I used to play there, they a good defensive unit, he said. a really good defensive unit, and they be a good test for us. He was released two days before Friday night home preseason opener against the 49ers.
