UNTIL WE CHANGE EVERYTHING WE DO

NCAA Football: Texas A&M at South Carolina Jeff Blake-USA TODAY Sports

NOTHING WILL CHANGE.

IM NOT MAD ABOUT LAST YEAR. LAST YEAR WE RAN INTO THE PERFCT STORM WITH LSU. A TEAM PERFORMING AT AN ELITE LEVEL LED BY A GENERATIONAL TYPE TALENT AT QB WHO FELT SCORNED ABOUT THE WAY THE YEAR BEFORE HAD GONE. THEY DID WHAT THEY NEEDED TO DO. IM NOT MAD ABOUT IT. THEY WERE LIGHT YEARS BETTER THAN US AND SHOWED IT.

IT’S NOT ABOUT THEM. JIMBO SAYS THAT THEY’RE A NAMELESS FACELESS OPPONENT, BUT THINGS NEEDED TO CHANGE AS A RESULT OF THAT GAME. WHICH IS WHY YOU SAW THIS IN THE WEIGHTROOM.

THAT GAME TAUGHT US ABOUT US AND TAUGHT US THAT WE WERENT GOOD ENOUGH. THINGS NEEDED TO CHANGE. IT’S NEVER PERSONAL. IT’S ALWAYS BUSINESS. THERE’S ALWAYS ROOM FOR GROWTH.

THIS GROWTH WASNT JUST ABOUT PLAYERS. I READ SOMEWHERE THAT OL COACH JOSH HENSON REEVALUATED EVERYTHING HE DID—EVERY METHOD HE USED TO EACH HIS PLAYERS—OVER THE SUMMER IN HOPES OF BEING BETTER AND GETTING BETTER. HIS 2019 BEST WASNT GOOD ENOUGH AND THINGS NEEDED TO CHANGE.

ID SAY THAT EFFORT PAID OFF.

SO NOW HERE WE ARE A YEAR LATER. FINDING THAT BALANCE OF BEING EMOTIONALLY INVESTED IN PAYING BACK A TEAM THAT WHIPPED OUR ASS A YEAR BEFORE WHILE ALSO LOOKING AT THEM AS A NAMELESS FACELESS OPPONENT. I DONT KNOW HOW, AS A COACH, YOU FIND THE BALANCE BETWEEN THOSE TWO THINGS, AND THAT’S WHY IM JUST SOME DUDE SITTING BEHIND A KEYBOARD.

UNTIL WE CHANGE EVERYTHING WE DO, NOTHING WILL CHANGE.

THE TEAM CAN LOOK AT LSU AS A NAMELESS FACELESS OPPONENT BUT IM A FLAWED HUMAN BEING WHO LOVES HIS DAMN FOOTBALL TEAM. AS MICHAEL JORDAN WOULD SAY ABOUT LAST YEAR “AND I TOOK THAT PERSONALLY”

ITS PERSONAL. AND ITS NOT. BUT IT IS.

UNTIL WE CHANGE EVERYTHING WE DO NOTHING WILL CHANGE.

ITS TIME TO PROVE IT ON THE DAMN FIELD HOW MUCH WE’VE CHANGED. TIME TO PLANT A DAMN FLAG IN THE SAND TO SAY THAT 2020 IS DIFFERENT. WE’RE BUILT DIFFERENT. FROM TOP TO BOTTOM.

ONE JOB TONIGHT. ONE SIMPLE JOB.

WE SAY WE’VE CHANGED.

TIME TO PROVE IT.
