  • Well you know, that's still my first love. I'll die and say that I was a DB. But you know, there's still time —— there's still time in my life to still be able to fulfill my dream.
  • I didn't end it [my career at Ohio State] the way I'd like to end it, but I ended the way I had to. That's a bad memory, but at the same time, we made it to the national championship game. I scored in the national championship game. That's the only way I can remember it.

  • I'm not the type of guy who is greedy. I take what they give me. If they say, 'Hey, go to quarterback,' I go to quarterback. I just have that type of mind.'

  • Records are made to be broken. Someone else will come along and break it [the record of punts returned for touchdowns], and that's great. You're only here for a short time in your life, so just go out and have fun with it.

  • You have to be patient. I want to be the possession receiver, the go-to guy. When it's time for a big play, they can come to me.

  • In order to be the go-to guy, you must have everything right. You have to be on point with your routes and catch the ball no matter where the quarterback puts it. You just have to have confidence. I'm rolling, and I want to go out and have fun.

  • Once you see a touchdown, there's no need to make a move. You just use your speed.

About Ginn[edit]

  • Here is guy who came to us as a return specialist and defensive back and has developed into a very good receiver. Has always had great hands and he has become a very good route runner. With his speed, he is a threat to score anytime he touches the ball.
  • He's pretty special. He's probably a little bit better on nine toes than most people are on 10.
