University of Tennessee at Chattanooga backup quarterback Graham Nichols, a redshirt junior, answers three quick questions about wrapping up his career Saturday against Elon.
1. What made you decide to call it a career with a year of eligibility remaining?
Nichols: "I'm going to be graduating in May and I had a great time here, great experience, and I just feel like it's time for me to move on. I feel like I did everything I could do for this team, and I feel like I contributed as much as I can."
2. Obviously you wanted to play more and contribute more on the field, so how do you leave here feeling about how things turned out on the field?
Nichols: "I still love football and I still love the guys. Everything didn't go as I'd planned, but I still ended up having a great experience and met a lot people -- so it was worth it and I wouldn't change a thing."
3. And what's it like to go out as an undefeated quarterback? (Nichols' only start came in the Mocs' 24-9 win at Samford last season.)
Nichols: "I won my start and I have my one claim to fame. ... I at least had that experience of getting to start. It was fun and I had a great time. Everyone wants to go through that at least once, and I was glad I got to do it."
