Is it September yet?

S: There was one quote that stood out for me from last season. It was after the Michigan State game when Michigan's offensive coordinator Calvin McGee described your play as "inconsistent, as always."

T: I guess I feel like that's a difference of philosophy from the previous staff. Granted, coaches do different things to get the most out of their players. Some people close to me were upset that a coach would call me out in front of the media, but you know, in the end it didn't really matter to me. And to be honest, my play in the Michigan State game was inconsistent. Is it right to say that at the press conference after the game? I mean, we had just lost a big rivalry game, so I would chalk most of that up to emotions after a big game like that.
