UGA women’s basketball coach Taylor – Georgia vs. Missouri – January 25, 2018

 
 
The title statement is from women’s basketball coach Joni Taylor after Thursday night’s 12-point victory over 11th ranked Missouri (03:54 mark in the video below). Although it may seem perfectly natural for a coach to express confidence in her team, Taylor’s casual certainty about the direction of her program and the unity of her team is striking, but the same declaration made by football coach Kirby Smart would also ring true. Winning coaches have an intrinsic understanding of the effort, focus, and the cohesion necessary to play for championships and convey the message to their teams with the authority of conviction.
