Louisville quarterback Teddy Bridgewater weighs in on the incredible year he had in 2012, the recent dominance of Louisville athletics, the impact social media has had on his life, his expectations for this season and the preseason Heisman hype that's surrounding him.
Bridgewater said he has a high tolerance for pain that came from watching his mother battle and overcome cancer.
"I saw my mom struggle to get out of bed," Bridgewater said. "I saw my mom's hair fall out. As far as I'm concerned, no pain is too tough to deal with."
Bridgewater also said he's been working on his stamina and footwork this offseason by training in the boxing ring in South Florida. Bridgewater said he's been watching video footage of legendary Mike Tyson fights on YouTube.
Bridgewater said he has seen former Auburn running back Michael Dyer on campus and that the Cardinals would "take him in and welcome him" if he were to join the team this season.
Dyer, who was on the Tigers' 2010 national championship team, was kicked out of Auburn, as well as Arkansas State, because of incidents involving drugs and weapons. He has not played in more than a year.
