"That's how winning is done"

I will be back tomorrow to offer my review of the Tech game and begin to look at LSU. But until then, I offer this quote from the last Rocky movie which perfectly sums up what the attitude the Dawgs should take heading into this match up:

Let me tell you something you already know. The world ain’t all sunshine and rainbows. It is a very mean and nasty place and it will beat you to your knees and keep you there permanently if you let it. You, me, or nobody is gonna hit as hard as life. But it ain’t how hard you hit; it’s about how hard you can get hit, and keep moving forward. How much you can take, and keep moving forward. That’s how winning is done. Now, if you know what you’re worth, then go out and get what you’re worth. But you gotta be willing to take the hit, and not pointing fingers saying you ain’t where you are because of him, or her, or anybody. Cowards do that and that ain’t you. You’re better than that!

Good quote. It sounds more like a Mickey quote than anyone else.

Rocky 5 though was an abomination. Or do you actually consider the 16-year later money grab part of the series?

This was from Rocky Balboa, not Rocky 5. It is Rocky talking to his kid (the guy from Heroes)

I prefer the quote..."And David put his hand in the bag and took out a stone and slung it. And it struck the Philistine on the head and he fell to the ground" from the movie Hoosiers. GATA!
