There is a lesson for coaches of all levels in this: it’s a game no matter how the stakes are perceived. It’s a game of motion, spontaneity and creativity. When the passion turns into stiff repetition, the fun is gone and the players respond accordingly.
"To have an opportunity to coach a team with this much talent and this much possibility is a great chance for me. I look at the players and the roster and I look at a group that can win games right now. We need to do that starting (Monday) on the Island. We can do this but the players have to believe that we can do this. That’s the approach that we’ll take."
