Amongst the flurry of negative takes, straight up name dropping (hi Braylon), and constant pressure/pointing from the fanbase got me thinking...how does an athelete think, in our case, a football player
- What is their schedule like? I'm assuming it involves waking up early and going to bed not too early
- What about mental state? How much energy and fortitude it takes to take hits, get back up and play through injuries (you know the type that will have majority here whining in pain). Slamming bodies every weekend ... how the heck do they do it in this violent game? Curious to know the mental state here.
- What type of goals do they have? Is it really team spirit or do they think of just raising their NFL stock. Do they actually care what the derivative of x^2 is in math class. (thinking about it, I am sure DPJ is studying hard for Organic chemistry and catching bombs on Saturday which is incredible to me)
- How many players actually despise a rival? Seems more like they chat and are "friends" outside of football games (as in M player chatting it up with OSU players...Devin Gardner going by JT barrett and consoling when he injured comes to mind). Fans talk smack and take rivalries personally, do players?
