A FEW THINGS TO DISCUSS

NCAA Football: Texas State at Texas A&M John Glaser-USA TODAY Sports

HOWDY

THIS IS THE KIND OF GAME WE’VE BEEN PLAYING FOR YEARS. IN THE SPOTLIGHT. WITH GREATNESS IN OUR REACH.

BUT THIS YEAR SOMEHOW IS DIFFERENT. THERE’S NO SWAGGER PER SE. JUST A QUIET CONFIDENCE IN OUR PREPARATION. IN OUR TALENT. IN THE FACT THAT WE HAVE WORKED HARD TO GET TO THIS POINT AND KNOW DAMN WELL THAT WE’RE GOING TO PUT OUR BEST EFFORT IN ALL PHASES OF THE GAME—COACHING INCLUDED—ON THE FIELD THIS SATURDAY. THAT’S DIFFERENT THAN ANY OTHER YEAR OF AGGIE FOOTBALL. THIS TEAM IS BUILT TO PLAY IN AND WIN GAMES LIKE THIS GAME RIGHT HERE. THE TEXAS AGGIES ARE COMING TO CLEMSON. AND HELL IS COMING WITH US.

I THINK YOU’RE SEEING THAT WITH OUR PLAYERS. HOCKER THE BLOCKER AND JHAMON WHICH MEANS H.A.M. IN SPANISH MADE SOME COMMENTS THIS WEEK THAT SOME ARE CALLING BULLETIN BOARD MATERIAL. I HAVE A FEW THOUGHTS ON THAT. 1) IF CLEMSON NEEDED MORE MOTIVATION TO BEAT THE HIGHEST RANKED TEAM ON THEIR SCHEDULE THEN DABO IS A PISS POOR COACH 2) I WOULD BE DISAPPOINTED IF OUR PLAYERS DIDNT THINK THEY WERE GOING TO WIN THIS GAME AND 3) WHAT ABOUT OUR BULLETIN BOARD? HOW GREAT DO YOU THINK IT IS FOR OUR TRUE FRESHMAN GUARD AND OUR TRUE FRESHMAN SAFETY AND OUR TRUE SOPHOMORE RUNNING BACK TO SEE UPPERCLASSMAN CONFIDENT ABOUT THEIR ABILITY AND THEIR PREPARATION? WINNING IS A MENTALITY AND YOUR MENTALITY DESERVES TO BE EXPRESSED FREELY. DONT CARE A SINGLE BIT ABOUT BULLETIN BOARDS. WE’RE JUST BEING HONEST ABOUT OUR INTENTIONS FOR THIS SATURDAY.

POINT BEING IS THAT BULLETIN BOARD MATERIAL IS GOOD FOR US. AND I LOVE THAT WE SAID IT. AS WINSTON CHURCHILL SAID “I LIKE A MAN WHO GRINS WHEN HE FIGHTS”. LET ME TELL YOU SOMETHING. WE’RE GONNA BE SMILING EAR TO EAR WHEN WE LINE UP ACROSS FROM THE TIGERS.

BECAUSE WE’RE READY.

WE ARE ABSOLUTELY READY.

THIS PROGRAM IS READY.

WE’RE READY TO HIT SOMEONE IN THE MOUTH.

SO ON THAT NOTE YOU NEED TO BE READY TOO. YOU NEED TO GO INTO THIS GAME CONFIDENT AS HELL. WE ARE GOING TO WIN AND YOU NEED TO WRAP YOUR HEAD AROUND THAT.

ON A SIDE NOTE, PLEASE FOR THE LOVE OF GOD CONSIDER MOJO IN YOUR GAME PLANS. DO NOT DO ANYTHING DIFFERENT. STICK TO YOUR ROUTINE. NO NEW SHIRTS, FOODS, DRINKS, LOCATIONS TO WATCH THE GAME, RITUALS, NOTHING. DO YOUR PART AND DO IT WELL. WE ARE GOING TO DO THE LITTLE THINGS BETTER THAN ANY OTHER TEAM IN THE COUNTRY, AND THAT’S WHAT’S GOING TO GET US THIS DAMN WIN. AND THAT GOES FOR YOU AS FANS TOO.

I FEEL AN EERY CALM ABOUT THIS ONE. I AM SIMPLY EXCITED TO SEE OUR TEAM GO OUT THERE AND PLAY TO THEIR POTENTIAL BECAUSE IF WE DO THAT. IF WE LEAVE EVERY SINGLE OUNCE ON THE FIELD. IF WE DO THE LITTLE THINGS PERFECTLY. IF WE PLAY WITH TOUGHNESS EFFORT DISCIPLINE PRIDE AND GRIT

WE WILL WIN.

WE’RE GOING TO WIN.

GET YOUR MIND RIGHT.
