If you had to eat the same thing every day for a full year, what would you choose and why?

I would say Chipotle, because it is just an unbelievable meal. I get the chicken burrito, double chicken, not too much rice. I'd get the green tomatillo, salsa and sour cream and extra cheese. You got to have extra cheese.

Other than a professional football player, what would your dream job be?

I'd like to be a curler. Yeah, a curler in the Olympics.

If you could change one thing about college football, what would you change?

I'd probably change the BCS system and go to a playoff system.

If you could have dinner with one person, alive or dead, who would it be and why?

Probably, Megan Fox, because she is beautiful.
