Christian Johnson told everyone, including his brother Micah, that it would not be easy for Micah…
Johnson happy with Cats' success
Johnson did seem on the verge of making a big impact early when he broke into the starting lineup. However, his playing time diminished and he was mainly limited to special teams play late in the season.
So is he disappointed or downtrodden going into Friday's game against Clemson in the Gaylord Hotels Music City Bowl? Absolutely not.
"This bowl game is so big for our program. I told people when I came here that we could win at least seven games," Johnson said. "People quoted me on that and some people thought I was crazy. But we did it and it feels great. I know a lot of people didn't believe me when I said this program had talent, but I knew there were good players here and that we could win."
But certainly he has to wish he was a bigger factor in that success this year?
"It is cool. I am a team player. I am excited for the team. We won and I am happy for that," he said. "The goals I set were fine, but just development-wise it was just more mental than I thought it would be at this level.
"I will be better, the defense will be better and I will continue to grow as a player. I will learn to make more good plays. I will learn to become more of a factor on this team. But there's no way for me to be anything but happy about us being in a bowl game. I came here to be part of this and now I just want to show people that we can do this every year because I know we can."
