Coach Al Golden, asked Monday about the progress of freshman quarterback Kevin Olsen, said Olsen needs to really improve the mental aspects of his game and cant waste this year.
Said Golden of Olsen, who is expected to redshirt this season: Hes got to learn the game. Hes got to be obedient to a regimen to be a quarterback, and its got to be the same every day. Hes got to be disciplined in terms of that. Hes not there yet. He hasnt owned the process yet.
Hes got to really improve the mental aspects of his game so that he can play the game fast, and he cant waste his time, cant waste this year.
Hes got to get better. Hes out here right now throwing. Hes got to. Hes got to be out here throwing every day. And when were not throwing, hes got to be throwing anyway.
Hes got to be watching the way Stephen [Morris] and Ryan [Williams] conduct themselves and how they run the offense. Hes got to know every signal, every call. Hes got to make the right Mike calls on runs, get us in the right protection. Hes got to get going on that side of it so he can play fast.
