Listen to the Pistons

This article on Sunday's Pistons victory over the Rockets was published in Monday's Detroit News. It describes an alley-oop from Rasheed Wallace to Ben Wallace that was successfully executed in the final minute with the Pistons up by two points. The article includes the following quote from Pistons coach Flip Saunders, which made me think of what was lacking in Michigan's 2005 football team:

"That play showed the mentality of our team," Saunders said. "Joe Dumars and I were just talking, and we were saying, you can't be afraid to win a championship. And what I mean is, you can't be afraid to make plays."

Hopefully Lloyd and Jim Hermann were at the Palace on Sunday night.

And this comment holds weight because they've actually won a championship, were minutes away from another, and appear on their way to one this season.
It's because Pete Carroll had this same attitude that I thought his decision to go for it on 4th down late in the Rose Bowl was the right choice.
