Safety Nat Berhe

June 1, 2016

Q: Are you fully healthy now?

A: Yeah. 100 percent.

Q: Do you ever worry about it?

A: I donít and thatís it.

Q: How much better do you feel this year compared to last?

A: Itís a total polar opposite than last year. Iím happy.

Q: What do you feel you have to prove to the team?

A: Just stay healthy and play football.

Q: Itís a crowded safety room?

A: It is.

Q: How do you guys get along knowing thereís a job open?

A: For me, Iím cool with everybody. I feel no certain way towards anybody in that room. We come out here and we compete, but you compete against yourself. The competition is between you.

Q: Do you feel you have an advantage over a rookie because you were here last year?

A: Only time will tell if anybody has any advantage over anybody. Weíll see.

Q: Do you feel you have an even better grasp of the defense?

A: I think so.

Q: How much did you miss football last year?

A: Itís just like with any other job. You have your job. You clock in and you come into work. Itís hard not being able to do that.

Q: Did you follow the team as much as you possibly could?

A: Yeah. You kind of know how it feels to become a true fan sitting from the outside looking in.

Q: What did you do to pass time?

A: I was on IR with two other guys. We hung out a lot, did some things and just tried to stay close.

Q: Two other guys at your position. Itís not a club you want to be a member of is it?

A: No, but at least youíre part of a club.

Q: Do you guys have a bond?

A: Yeah. You spend most of your time with that person and you know much more about them than the average Joe.

Q: Do you think you all look pretty good?

A: Yeah. Iíd like to think so.

Q: How much did it help to be with them?

A: We all understand this is a business and we all understand this is a competition. Each day is a new day and each day you get better.

Q: Do you guys compete against each other?

A: I just try to stay in my own lane and do what Nat Berhe has to do.
Would love to see what he can do,

He seems pretty confident.

Confident enough to go third person, at least.
He knows the clock be ticking

You're right. I especially liked this answer:
A: No, but at least youíre part of a club.
What's especially interesting to me is that one of his competitors,

Maybe his main competitor for a starting role, is Darian Thompson, who was another stud 2x All Conference safety from the MAC. So they played against a lot of the same teams during their college careers, as well as against each other when Berhe was a senior and D. Thompson a sophomore. They both were multi year starters and studs in their league.
Do you suck as bad as BBI posters claim?

No, that would be impossible.
