The Team!

We've all heard this speech a hundred times, but I figured it was appropriate to post now. 

"We want the Big Ten championship and we're gonna win it as a team!  They can throw out all those great backs and great quarterbacks and great defensive players throughout the country and in this conference.  But, there's gonna be one team that plays solely as a team.  No man, is more important than the team. No coach, is more  important than the team. THE TEAM! THE TEAM! THE TEAM! And, if we think that way, all of us. Everything that you do, you take into consideration, what effect does it have on my team? Because, you can go in to professional football. You can go anywhere you want to play, after you leave here. You will never play for a team again! You'll play for a contract. You'll play for this. You'll play for that. You'll play for everything except the team! Think what a great thing it is, to be a part of something that is, THE TEAM! We're gonna win it. We're gonna win the championship again, because we're gonna play as a team! Better than anybody else in this conference, we're gonna play together as a team. We're gonna believe in each other. We're not gonna criticize each other. We're not gonna talk about each other! We're gonna encourage each other! And when we play as a team, and the old season is over. You and I know, it's Michigan again, MICHIGAN!"

From my limited interactions with you, I might suggest that you have sort of a pots and kettles problem. Anyone can criticize -- the people who have offered diaries have taken time to compose their thoughts on something important to them. You have offered only snooty little asides. I'd love to know if you can do better.
