Green Bay Packers LB A.J. Hawk should be used to Super Bowl. Though he's never been in a Super Bowl, he has been through a BCS Bowl game schedule with Ohio State.
Hawk made an appearance at the 2011 Super Bowl Media Day on Tuesday and suggested the two were similar so the craziness of Super Bowl week isn't totally unexpected for him.
Hawk played at Ohio State when they appeared in the Fiesta Bowl and happened to be dating Notre Dame QB Brady Quinn's sister at the time. If you followed that game, you know the amount of media attention that they gave those three.
It's easy to see how a guy like Packers RB James Starks could be overwhelmed considering he went to school at Buffalo and hasn't seen anything like this before. Some of the big time college football guys, like Hawk, are a little more prepared for this.
Hawk said the one-day-at-a-time mantra comes into play with events like this.
Who knows where Hawk will be playing next year but he talked about staying in shape to make sure you're going to be around for a while. He mentioned Donald Driver, who is turning 36 years old on Wednesday, as someone who's been able to do that.
