Football Fantastica:What was Michigan States secret
42-7 Damn thats deep. Shea Patterson struck gold with his defense, Michigans offensive line has been the story of the season. So what was the secret sauce behind such a successful strategy?
From being one of the worst units a year ago to one of the best in the Big Ten through nine weeks this year. U-M pounded the ball against Michigan State, a top-notch rush defense, two weeks ago. It neutralized Penn State's heralded pass rush Saturday and ran for 259 yards.
What was their secret Sauce? Impeccable teamwork, dynamic discipline and a belief in their potential. They did the hard plays, cultivated the practice and with single minded determination, achieved incredible success.
Many of us want a great win but we dont commit the plays to the practice. Imagine how many gruelling hours of training these plays took to perfect, the hours at the gym, the sacrifices each team player had to make. Imagine the focus, the hunger it took more than just faith. To walk into your glory, preparation is key at all times, you must manage your time and structure it, and cultivate more positive thinking more importantly learn from your losses. That is what this team did , and they exceeded themselves.
