“We push the guys pretty hard,” Rodriguez said. “It’s pretty intense. (Devine’s) work ethic is outstanding, which goes to be expected.”
“Everyone seems so supportive, positive,” Devine said. “I’m starting a new life up here. I have a different reputation up here.”
When asked if he missed Southwest Florida, Devine quickly answered “no.”
“That place was holding me down,” he said.
When asked how WVU’s recent dubious honor of being crowned the No. 1 party school in the nation would affect him, he said it wouldn't.
“I went to school to play football,” he said, “You have to follow the rules and stay focused.”Devine said he and his teammates have an 11 p.m. curfew.
“It helps keep you out of trouble,” he said.
Devine, who has yet to declare a major, said he is taking 17 credit hours. That is six more than required to be considered a full-time student.
Over the past few years, it has been common for Devine to cut interviews short, as he did with The News-Press on Monday.
However, the reason he gave for his departure was one he had never used in the past.
“I have to go now,” he said. “I have to go study.”
