Kyle Fetterly told a story about their time together at Syracuse when Coach O was there early in the morning working out.

An assistant asked why he was working out so early, and the iconic coach responded with, “Son, the day I can’t whoop a man’s ass is the day I don’t get out of bed.”

Inject this right into my veins. Inject it right into my soul right now. I want this quote printed out, put on posters and hung all over the office.

If you can’t whoop a man’s ass, then what is the point of even waking up? That’s the kind of energy and spirt that has LSU at 14-0 and in the national title game.

I want Coach O to just get a TV show where he gives us motivational quotes on a regular basis. I’d watch every single second of that.

That’s the kind of entertainment we crave.

Now, he’ll face Clemson for the title Monday night on ESPN. Can’t wait! I have no doubt he’ll have some more epic quotes if they win.
