Well, I waited all day to see if we had any sad, sad, comments from crying OSU fans or any glad, glad commnets from the Gator Nation fans. So far, I see nothing.
Contrary to all of the "professional" sports pundits out there prior to the BIG game that had the Gators losing BIG, the boys from Gainesville proceeded to put a big ole southern whoop-as* on the Buckeyes. Not surprising to those of us in the south that follow SEC football. The reason you won`t probably see an undefeated SEC team is that it is the toughest conference in the NCAA. The Buckeyes found out first hand on Monday night.
Plus, the Gators had "want to." They just wanted it more. They were the definite underdogs in the game going in - in the "professional" viewpoint. But those people underestimated Coach Meyers and the Gators ... a BIG, BIG mistake. But that did not deter the Gators to be the underdog. In fact, OSU getting a quick touchdown was probably the best thing that happened to the Gators. It just made` em more determined.
I`m not a Gator fan. I root for the GA DAWGs. But for one night, I was a Gator fan, rooting for the SEC. The Gators made the SEC proud last night.
From a business perspective, keep what the Gators did in the back of your mind. Have that same determination and drive. Build a good team. Coach your business well. When the "play" doesn`t work out as planned, get up and get back in the game - stay the course on the overall game plan - don`t let mometary setbacks kick your butt. Don`t give up. Give your all for the entire game. Keep score. Measure. The rewards are great for those that put everything into the Game of Work.
I`ll close with condolences to all you Buckeye fans and tell you that at least you made it to the big dance. Better luck next time
