More than anything, I am proud of the way that this team and their coaches have handled this season. I can't imagine how difficult it must be to lace up and go to work every single day with a consistent threat of thunderstorms everywhere you go. How do you deal with the constant doubt and second guessing? How do you stay focused on a goal, hold your team together and drive forward when everyone is raining down on you? To keep drving forward, never giving up and constantly believing while just about everyone appears to be against you is nothing short of impressive. And the most impressive part of all this to me? The players' loyalty and love of their coach. It's not just in the fact they gave him the game ball or told us and the media (once again) that they believe in him, it's the fact that they have done it since day one and never waivered, they never cracked. I have not heard one word of dissension in the ranks. They have stood together and stood tall in the face of all challenges. There are a lot of highly regarded programs with very media-popular faces that would probably not be able to pull off this same feat in the light of these types of pressures. That to me is a huge testament to that coach and the quality of the young men on the team. They have a very solid bond and a foundation that makes all things possible. We often overlook the value of commitment, loyalty, desire, and the sheer will to win. If you have this you can achieve anything. Way to Geaux Tigers!!
