Super Bowl XXXI, XXXII, and
Today, thirty-three games into the season, the
Toreros answered back with a sweep of the Gonzaga Bulldogs in a
run for another conference championship. This weekend was a
perfect response to an unacceptable series and midweek contest
the previous week.
A return to individual responsibility and a lack
of excuses were key ingredients in this weekend’s performance,
and prove to be a theme of a championship future.
spoke with the team before the game Friday and made sure that it
was understood that though it is said often in a cliché manner,
that Friday’s game was the most important game of the season and
that we had better believe it! I shared my feeling that in
hindsight this summer we will look back on Friday and say that
it was the turning point where we either made a choice to give
the commitment needed to achieve our goals or it was the point
where we gave it all away. So we treated Friday like it was our
Super Bowl, and we played like it.
After the game, the message was much of the same.
I expressed that unfortunately in our line of work it doesn’t
get any easier and that now tomorrow is our Super Bowl. In my
opinion, given the intensity and commitment we should bring
every day, we should never lose. So from here on out, conference
game or not, fans in the stands or not, our PA guy announcing
our names like we are heavyweight contenders or not, we will try
to play every game like it is our Super Bowl.
Break out the 7-layer dip, Tuesday is Super Bowl
