"When we started off 0-2, I kept hearing whispers of I might be here next year, I might not be here and things like that," Stephon said. "But as we got winning, those whispers started to calm down, then after the Ohio State game, I heard them again. And I talked to those guys: 'It will be stupid to leave here. Where else would you want to go? Let's not think football. Lets' think about getting a degree, the support you will have with getting that degree. Not to knock other school, if you get a degree here. It means a lot.'"
