Benn surprises Juice

| No Comments | No TrackBacks
Told that Arrelious Benn said he'd been putting too much pressure on himself, Juice Williams had a hard time believing it. ``If he was putting too much pressure on himself, I didn't know abput it,'' Williams said. "He does a great job of keeping a level head and never showing his true feelings. That's surprising to hear. He's a sophomore performing like a senior.''
One reason Benn, who's averaging 135.8 yards and 7.2 catches per Big Ten play, might have caught Juice off-guard: He merely agreed that he had relaxed a bit in the last month when asked about it while mentioning a number of things, including Juice throwing well, other receivers catching balls and an offensive line that was protecting well.
``Maybe I put a little pressure on myself at the beginning,'' he said. ``But I calmed down, let things come to me and just went out and had fun. I'm having a lot of fun. This is something I love doing.''
