It was a one-time thing, and it was dumb on my part. I hope (the scouts) dig into my background because they'll all see I come from a good family. I can't be out there doing what everyone else does. The spotlight is on me all the time. I'll be staying in the house for a while.

It's exciting. You know, it's all new and different for me. I'm working my way through it and trying to do what's expected of me. Like I said, you never really know where you're going or when you're going until you hear your name called. I just want to work hard and show what I can do and just see how it comes out.

Just like old times. We were roommates for two years at Arkansas, too.

I've got to take the good with the bad. You can't listen too much to the good, can't listen too much to the bad. I've just got to keep getting better.
