. . . and one interception.
(Correction: Cousins threw an INT last season, too. Makes the presentation of the numbers somewhat less dramatic. Nuts.)
At least one observer continues to be impressed with Cousins' poise:
"A quarterback is judged by wins and losses and how he plays at crunch time," he said. "And right now I’m 1-2 as a starter and I made a critical error at crunch time."
"It hurts. I'm hurting right now," Cousins said Saturday outside Michigan State's locker room after the Spartans' 33-30 loss to the Irish. "(But) it's part of the job, part of what you deal with. I'm a man, I'll take it. I just have to learn from it and keep my head up."
