Neuheisel Conference Call Pt. 5

On Sean Sheller:
“It was the fair ruling because Sean missed two of his seasons with injury. the NCAA did the right thing and we appreciate that. I know Sean appreciates it. He’s kind of had a second, a rebirth of sorts in terms of his football career. He had some real hard luck early and last year became a starting football player and I know is very excited about extending his career. I’m looking forward to him improving and becoming a real leader for us in front.”

On Glenn Love:
“We want Glenn to have a chance to win a job. Akeem has left and we wish him well, but Glenn being a senior, being a guy who does everything right in the program, I want him to have a chance to win that job. His body is built for a Sam linebacker. He certainly has cover ability. Now its just about the physical portion of the job and being instinctive. We also have Ryan Hoffmeister joining us for the spring and Eric Kendricks who will get a lot of reps at will linebacker.”

On Datone Jones
“I’ve got no reason to think other wise. I know he’s excited about being back in uniform and getting going again. Hes an exciting player when hes at full speed.”

On Todd Golper:
“Todd is released to play and now he has to get back out there and get his sea legs, so to speak. He’s been down a long time with a nagging back injury, and we hope that’s all behind him and he’s ready to go and be a contributing player again.”
