How do you go back & forth from world beaters to ditch dwellers weekly? It is a pure FACT that the Hogs do just that.
Motivation is just as strange of an animal as Momentum. However both do positively exist on a football field at all levels. There are books analyzing these two mental conditions in athletic competition.
Coaches must manipulate motivation for momentum to most likely ever emerge. I think a fiery personality is best and by far the easiest way to achieve motivation on the college level but I think there are other ways for an innovative smart coach to go about it.
I never thought of Les Miles as fiery or smart. However he did win an NC at LSU before they fired him. What I first noted eventually most likely got him but he lasted at LSU a long time. The answer for his longevity at LSU was good assistants who were good at motivation as well as at coaching.
I think the assistants is the avenue Bielema must go. He may have had them at Wisconsin. Bielema is surely not a fiery dude and does not strike me as an Einstein either. Bielema needs fiery good fundamentally sound coaching assistants. I hope he gets them before he must be fired.
