Freshman Q&A: Bradham on his first real action

With Toddrick Verdell going down with a groin injury early in the Colorado game, Nigel Bradham saw his first extended action for Florida State on Saturday. The true freshman linebacker spoke to and others in the media about how he performed against the Buffaloes, adjusting to the speed of college, what it will be like going against Miami for the first time and more.

Q: With your increased role in the Colorado game due to Toddrick Verdell's injury, how did it go for you?

Bradham: I mean, it was a big role for me to try to come in and fill Verdell's shoes. He is a great player, a great linebacker.

He has been making sure I keep my composure and coaching me up on some things. I know I made some mistakes.
