C.J. Stroud firmly believes that dwelling on the past is a futile exercise. He is someone who lives in the present and focuses solely on the future. The Ohio State quarterback understands that success can only be achieved by learning from past mistakes and constantly improving. Therefore, he does not waste time thinking about what has already happened and instead channels all his energy towards achieving his goals.
A question was posed to the ex-Ohio State quarterback regarding the current NCAA inquiry into Michigan for supposedly engaging in unlawful sign stealing.
What was his reaction?
According to Stroud, the situation is as it appears – no more, no less. “It is what it is,” he remarked.

During Stroud’s two years as the starting quarterback for the Buckeyes, they were defeated by Michigan each time. It’s worth noting that the purported sign-stealing operation was carried out throughout those two seasons.
Stroud expressed his disappointment in the team’s defeat, stating, “They beat us. It is what it is.” However, he quickly shifted his focus to his current position in the NFL, stating that he is not concerned about what happened in college. Stroud added, “I’m not super happy with that, but man, I’m in the NFL now.”
“We had a suspicion that there might be something happening, but ultimately, it is what it is. I don’t want to dwell on it any further. As a Texan now, I’m focused on moving forward and not worrying about the past.”
As a rookie starter for the Houston Texans, Stroud has been making an impressive entrance into the NFL scene. Despite being the No. 2 overall pick in the draft this year, Stroud has not let the pressure get to him, and is delivering solid performances on the field.
