Sports Illustrated released its college football preview with Josh Rosen gracing the cover. The magazine’s Pete Thamel profiles Rosen, getting a behind-the-scenes look at Rosen’s incredibly fratty apartment and his life as a budding football star trying to hang on to life as a college student.

“I’m not going to f‑‑‑‑‑‑ get in trouble for drugs or anything like that, but I don’t want to be this crystal-clean guy with perfect responses,” Rosen told Thamel. “I’m not going to pretend to be 50. I just want to be happy and enjoy the experiences I have and take advantage of every opportunity I’ve been given.”

Speaking of Rosen, he met with the media today after practice and he had more interesting comments about his life in the spotlight. He admitted he needs to be “a little more mature” in how he expresses his thoughts on social media.

      I couldn’t explain it any better than Pete Thamel does in his story. It’s definitely worth your read.
