If you can raise the level of effort and performance in those around you, you are officially a leader.
It is so easy to be average. It takes a little something to be special. Why be around average?
I have yet to be in a game where luck was involved. Well-prepared players make plays. I have yet to be in a game where the most prepared team didn’t win.
Elite warriors, when they accomplish their mission, they celebrate.
At the end of the day, I’m very convinced that you’re going to be judged on how you are as a husband and as a father and not on how many bowl games we won.
But what I didnt want to have happen, and I made this clear to Jeremy (Florida AD), if I am able to go coach, I want to coach at one place, the University of Florida. It would be a travesty, it would be ridiculous to all of a sudden come back and get the feeling back, get the health back, feel good again and then all of a sudden go throw some other colors on my shirt and go coach? I dont want to do that. I have too much love for this University and these players and for what weve built.
I remember when I was coaching down at Florida, we would always lose kids in recruiting battles to Clemson. I would tell my coaches that we shouldn’t be losing kids to Clemson. Charlie Strong responded ‘coach have you ever actually been to Clemson?’ I hadn’t but I’ll tell you what, I’ve been here now and I get it. This is an exceptional, special place.
It’s competition. It’s putting them in environments, in situations where I want to see who the fighters are and who they guys are that are going to compete. And there will be rewards at the end of the day. Gatorade if you win. You drink out of a water hose if you lose and do some running. And that includes the coaching staff.
I have yet to be in a game where luck was involved.
You don’t get 5 years to build a team any more. You get 2 if you’re lucky.
The future is bright at Ohio State.
I have ignored my health for years, but recent developments have forced me to re-evaluate my priorities of faith and family.
I don’t like disrespecting other teams.
Anyone can run the option. I can run the option.
What makes LSU is the environment and the fans and those guys wearing the jerseys. They’re really good players.
Coaches do get very nervous.
