Jeff High grad Ed Wright-Baker in the mix for starting quarterback at Indiana


> SOUTHERN INDIANA — Q: You just had a big coaching change there at IU. What are some of the differences between this coaching staff as opposed to last year's coaching staff?

A: I don't really know how to answer this question. I don't wanna put down last year's coaching staff or nothing, but I don't know. This year's coaching staff, I mean they're pretty hard on us and they push us. The difference is the new offense we're running this year. It's an up-tempo offense, real fast. We've been doing a lot of running every day. We've got the whole team here this summer. We're building a better team chemistry. So I mean that's helping a lot.

Q: Is there anything in particular that you really like that this coaching staff is doing this year, or has done so far?

A: I think having all the guys — I mean, it's really not the coaching staff for us. I think what's going good this summer is like, everybody, the whole team's here and everybody's just working hard every day. We're out having seven-on-seven and lifting, running every day, the whole team is doing it. There's not one person that's not here so that's going to benefit us this year, so. We got the new coach, he's been doing that.

Q: More personal to you, how has the competition been for quarterback so far this year?

A: It's been pretty good. I haven't really been worried about the competition perspective, I've been worrying about myself because I think that's how I'm going to strive and get better. I think I play worse when I worry about what other people are doing. I just worry about myself, so, I mean, as far as myself, I've been preparing hard this summer, doing extra stuff, watching extra tapes, doing extra footwork every day so. I think it's going to be a good battle.
