I really like this quote from Terry Godwin.
“We tell these young guys, we never want to come up one play short again,” receiver Terry Godwin said. “That’s the difference between a national championship, and being the runner-up. Nobody ever remembers the runner-up. You always remember the champion. We don’t want to be one play short.”
The challenge for Smart isn’t going to be making players like Godwin stay hungry. It’s going to be infusing the same attitude in the rest of the team.
