After missing Geibel's opening game of the season due to an injury, left-handed junior quarterback Brandon Kushnar has rejoined his teammates on the field.

Q: How hard was it for you and your teammates to have to forfeit the first two games of the season?

A: It was difficult, but I look at this year as a learning experience, and it gave us two extra weeks to learn.

Q: What was the injury that kept you out of the start of the season?

A: It was a broken right hand. It happened in our scrimmage.

Q: What goals have you and your teammates set for the remainder of the season?

A: We want to make it through this season, then work out all offseason and come back ready to go.

Q: How long have you been playing football?

A: 11 years.

Q: What is your favorite food?

A: I like salad bars because they are healthy and you can pile a lot of stuff on top.

Q: What is your favorite movie?

A: It's a tie between “Remember the Titans” and “Gridiron Gang.”

Q: If you could have dinner with anybody, who would it be?

A: Urban Meyer. He's a great coach, and he does a lot for the Ohio State program.

Q: Who is your favorite athlete?

A: Hines Ward. He is a big role model, and he is always positive.

Q: What are some words you try to live by?

A: Stay strong and be positive. Everybody loses games, but few people change games.
