This week’s focus point: Here’s my theory on why underdogs win: The team on top can’t achieve the proper motivation, and the team on the bottom feels it has nothing to lose and everything to gain. I look at a tough meeting, speech, or debate as a challenge, as a chance to have fun and show what I can do. I’m never frightened, or worried about “losing,” or my ego being damaged, or what others may think. Bentley doesn’t refuse to chase the frisbee if the toss is high or far. He doesn’t worry about failing. LSU beat Ole Miss last night because they were pumped up to the nth degree to knock off a top team. When you face a challenge, are you intimidated or pumped up? Motivation comes from within, not some guy shouting platitudes from a stage, telling old stories, and crying on cue.
