Matthew Stafford has had his share of ups and downs this season. He is 3-1 as a starter as has…
Dave McMahon -- What is it like starting now after being 2nd and 3rd string for all these years?
Michael Turner -- It is great starting, but it is the same. You have to prepare each week the same. I still have to work hard to keep my status. I don't want to lose it.
DM -- You were at tackle earlier this year, but now you are starting at guard... is there a big difference?
MT -- The biggest difference is that I am going against bigger guys. On the outside my opponents are much quicker, inside they are more physical.
DM -- Changing positions should not be new to you... you came to Georgia as a tight end... how big were you back then?
MT -- I weighed about 240-245 pounds.
DM -- What do you weigh now?
MT -- About 290
DM -- What has Coach Callaway been saying about how you have been playing?
MT -- He said I have been OK, but I have some improving to do.
DM -- What teammate currently or in the past... have you learned the most from?
MT -- I would say it was Kedric Golston. Just all the things he went through. I remember in high school he had the really bad leg injury, but he kept his positive attitude and he is now starting in the NFL.
DM -- What do you know about Kentucky's defense?
MT -- They are physical but also very fast. We have to be ready.
DM -- Reading your bio, it says you were also a pitcher at Brookwood, have you ever faced anyone on Georgia's baseball team before?
MT -- I don't think so, but I did face Jeff Francoeur when he was at Parkview?
DM -- How did you do against him?
MT -- I did pretty good.
DM -- Do you think anyone on the football team could hit off you on the baseball field?
MT -- No... I'd strike everyone out.
DM -- Thank you for your time and answers.
