Listen: Jerry Jarrett, Football, Clemson discussed on The Paul Finebaum Show
"It was way more nervous getting down on one neat. It's funny somebody people ask me, what did you say to her? And I tell them guys, I blacked out like I have no idea what I said to her. It was just kind of all kind of all happened in such a fast way. So I definitely feel more comfortable. Probably doesn't people and then getting on one knee. So she did say yes, right? Yeah, she did actually. Well, great. Well, congratulations again, it's a great story and we're all happy for you. So let's talk about the the coming season camp is reach beyond the halfway point. The games are finally in sight, and you guys have one of the biggest games in the country. Maybe the biggest, the opening weekend against Washington. How is the preparation gone? It's been great. Everybody's been really excited this fall camp on a finally back on the field doing our thing. I mean, like you said, we, we have the biggest, the big game college football week one, and we're preparing really hard for them and I'm sure they're doing the same to us. So it's it's going to be a great challenge week one, but we we got a really good football team this year and really looking forward to it. We've talked to coach malzahn a couple of weeks ago. We certainly have paid a lot of attention, and there are some questions at Auburn. You hear people talk about the line. You hear people talk about maybe not having a name running back. Talk about the pieces around you on this Auburn offense. I think I think we're going to, we're going to surprise people think, coach Grimes, tremendous job with the offense, this fall camp and finally starting to see some some chemistry. Those guys really joing together front, which has been phenomenal. And then in the running back position, we have a lot of young talent Cam Martin's kind of the kind of veteran guy now. And he's been really helping out some of these younger guys. And like I said, they're super super talented and really looking forward to to seeing how they play throughout the year and obviously on the outsides everybody's back so that that makes my job a lot easier to try and get those guys, the ball, you know, let them do all the, you know, all that they can do to to get touchdowns I down whatnot, and we actually have some some really good young talent on the receiving end as well. And so. I feel really comfortable with those guys and you know, super excited to to get them the ball, the season, Jerry Jarrett a year ago. Certainly. There are a lot of unknowns. I mean, we knew you were very sound quarterback based on what we've seen. I didn't Waco, but it was your first go around in the SEC. How much more comfortable do you feel today? I feel so much more comfortable, you know, being being in this league for an entire year, getting all that experience against the top talent in the country. You know, it's it's awesome because I can say here and, and you know, like you said, looking back a year ago, I had no idea what I was getting myself into, but but now I can really comprehend what the SEC is all about and what it takes to to be some of the best teams in the country. And so this year really trying trying to build on top of that and carry it from game to game this season and try to do the best that I can to help my team win joke. I don't think he. Laughing coach malzahn, not long ago about the schedule you had last year force, Clemson beginning, Georgia, Alabama, those three of the four participants in the college football playoff. So I mean, you saw the best of the best. What did you learn from from seeing all those defenses? Certainly Clemson that you got a lot to overcome their, but you seem like you recovered quite well that had to be an incredible experience for you.."
