Media Day: Godfrey steps in at corner

After seeing playing time at safety and on special teams the past two years, Charles Godfrey is stepping in as a starting cornerback for the Hawkeyes this season.

GODFREY: I'm still learning. Everyday I'm learning and I'll never be satisfied with where I'm at. The first day I came out, it was a pretty good practice. My goal in every practice is to come out and get better and better, but it's going real well.

Q: Does it help that you and Shada are going into this together as far as new starters at corner?

GODFREY: Oh yeah, we'll all be together. We'll go into it together as team, not just me and Shada. The whole backfield, the linebackers, and the linemen, we're all in this thing together and it's never an individual thing.
