Speech of the Week

Kirk Cousins

Big 10 Kickoff Luncheon Address

"If I were to categorize my experiences while being a part of the Big Ten, I would place much of what has already occurred under the heading: 'Privilege.'"

"And it's here, in this place of privilege, where perhaps danger lies. I have been taught that human nature is such that the "place of privilege" most often and most naturally leads to "a sense of entitlement" -- the notion that I deserve to be treated as special, because I'm privileged."

"The Bible says in Luke 12:48: 'From everyone who has been given much, much will be demanded; and from the one who has been entrusted with much, much more will be asked.'"

"We have a responsibility to use the platform we've been given to provide a true example of what it means to be a young man to those 10 and 12-year-old boys who see us as bigger than life."

"I don't believe it's too far-fetched to think that we as college football players could make a significant, positive difference in the youth culture of America simply by embracing the responsibilities that accompany this place of privilege."

"We could redefine what is 'cool' for young people."

"We could set a new standard for how to treat others."

"We could embody what it means to be a person of integrity."

"We could show to young people that excellence in the classroom is a worthy pursuit."

"We could show that it's more important to do what is right than to do what feels right."
