Let me give you an example. He'll start the winter program like he's suffering from some terrible disease. Then after about three weeks, he'll be fit and get it going. But that's his personality. When he has pressure on him, he gets it done.
You do it in drill work, you do it in team period, you do it in seven-on-seven. You have to create turnovers and address that nearly every day. It's a mind-set that you'll get them in, but it's also a technique.
Our kids are ready to play. We've had some very good practices. It's great to be in a bowl game, but it's even better to win a bowl. We're a much more mature team now then when we started four years ago.
We've had a very businesslike approach. The team's very focused. We want our seniors to go out in style. They've grown with this program. We interlocked our arms and started the march up the hill together.
Charlton has a lot of heart. I was concerned he couldn't play tonight, and despite all that, he put pressure on the quarterback, he made plays in the running game, he hustled around. It's a real tribute to him because he was very, very ill.
We had an opportunity for our senior class to leave in great fashion. They led us to a winning season for the first time at KU in 10 years, a bowl victory, and you all know all the great things these kids have done leading up to this game.
