Excerpt from "Legend of Leader" Post:
...Before every season, Mark Dantonio has each player fill out a goal card.
“I don’t put Rose Bowl. I don’t put throw for a certain number of yards," Cousins said. "I put ‘Bring an unquenchable enthusiasm every day to practice.’ Because I know the days that I do that, our team performs much better than the days I come in lackadaisical and don’t perform at a high level emotionally. And I think second, third week of training camp, it’s human nature to start to complain and grumble.
"And I’ve already talked to our seniors and said, ‘Guys, if we as seniors do not complain and do not grumble, the whole team will feed off that. The coaches will feed off that. If we as seniors decide second or third week, it’s hot, we’re tired, if we start to let that creep in, this whole thing could go south.’ So I’m more focused on controlling what we can control, such as our attitude and our preparation. Things like the Rose Bowl will take care of itself.”
