It's also a great reason for parents to send their kids to play at Nebraska IMO.In the end, it is the players team. They either make it happen, or the don't. If they fail, they need to look in the mirror. What they will see is themselves, not a coach. The disipline necessary to succeed comes from within.
I hope every recruit reads that article. Every current player should relay the message of self accountability to recruits. it is an impressive and powerful message for a young kid hear.
Agreed. Did not see this thread and posted these thoughts about the article in the practice thread.I think that might be best thing I've ever read from Dirk. He did a terrific job of showing contrasting styles without taking cheap shots at anyone. He explained the problems last year without pointing fingers at anyone. It was just a great piece of journalism IMO.
One of my favorite tunes is Turn the Page by Bob Seger.....
On the almost eve of a huge game it's time to... TURN THE PAGE.
Also liked this. Talking about personal responsibility.“Taking over a losing program is easy because they wanna change,” linebackers coach Trent Bray said. “When you take over a team that won nine games, you can’t come in and say, ‘We’re changing this because you were bad.’
Seems like this has been stated about 100 times in about 100 different ways on the board.
Oh and by the way that is the favorite of a lot of Nebraskans because it mentions Omaha. Although ironically because of the description of where they are. "On a long lonesome highway east of Omaha." The tour bus is clearly in Iowa. It is also a very good song though.Taking orders from a strong personality has its value. But at crunch time, Bray says, “the same buy-in isn’t there.”
“When it’s yours, you won’t let that slip through your fingers. You won’t let things fade away. Just that little bit of mentality is a big difference when it comes to close games.”
