"Even when I first got here and I was redshirting, I felt physically, I had to the ability to be on the field," Exum said. "But it's always the understanding of the defense, being able to make the calls, that was holding me back. It wasn't that I didn't have any natural football sense. It was just that I just hadn't seen it before."
Exum lived by the words he wrote on it, right up through this summer, when he started doing hot yoga to improve his hip flexibility and breathing, knowing this was his year to put last year's errors behind him.
