“What do you want me to do, have him stand up there and say I hope we play a nice game?” The video below is an amazing example that many people have long forgotten.

In this era where comments are heard around the world within minutes and then put through the paces of being criticized, it is refreshing to hear that even 22 years ago coaches had to defend their players at every turn. Jim Harbaugh laid out a very confident “we’ll be in Pasadena this year, I guarantee it” and the old ball coach, Bo Schembechler was called on to defend him.
This is further proof of what all athletes around the world have known forever, you have to go in to every game thinking that you are going to win. Confidence is key and those that have doubt will, more often than not, come out on the losing end.
