“I”ll do this as long as I go to practice and am excited about practice. Most people get excited about games, but I’ve got to be excited about practice, because that’s my classroom. And as long as I have that feeling in my head and my heart, then I’m going to do it. When I walk in there and I’m practicing, and I’m thinking, ‘I don’t want to be here,’ then I’m not going to cheat anybody. I’ll tell the university in a heartbeat that I’m done.
