Alright summary:

Aggie fans are the nicest people he's ever met. Family loved utah.

Perkins never fought anybody on the team.

One day at practice Shane Rector hit Lew Evans with a cheap shot to the head after a few hard screens. It gave him a concussion and he considered pressing charges. The captains agreed to suspend Rector for 1-2 weeks but it caused a riff in the team. Then we lost to the D2 team. The next day in practice, Collette showed up late in street clothes. Said he was transferring to Utah. Perkins was so upset he walked out. Had high expectations for the year after the pervious season. Perkins said he should have done it before the season, had the mindset of f$&@ David. Perkins thought of transferring before the season but felt USU was loyal to him and he owed it back. He had struggled after his sister died.

Also said he had never played PG before USU. His confidence fluctuated because of that. Felt like he wasn't being used the right way but is a team player so he did what Coach wanted. Said his senior year was tough. Got depressed during and after the season. Went from 200 to 230 lbs, didn't sleep, binge eating. Still says overall he had a great time at USU and is thankful for the opportunity to play there.

Wishes Stew didn't retire. Said he was a great coach a players coach.

David Collette is the definition of an entitled little (I can't express myself without swearing).
