Video: 'It's not about the shoes, it's about what you do in them'

Utah State has found a formula for success, and it has nothing to do with uniform combinations, or fancy chrome helmets. Matt Wells, and his predecessor Gary Andersen, have found a way to get the most out of the guys on their roster and that approach has led to 20 wins over the past two seasons.

This video was shown on the senior's banquet night, as they reflected on their final season of college football, and the line that the video leads with could not be more fitting (courtesy of the great Michael Jordan and a recent commercial).

"It's not about the shoes, it's about what you do in them. It's about knowing where you're going and not forgetting where you started."

"It's about having the courage to fail. Not breaking when you are broken. Taking everything that you have been given, and making something better. It's about work, before glory. It's about doing what they say you can't." Jordan explains

That's as powerful of an opening line as I've ever heard. The video goes on to recap the season's highs and lows and is well worth the seven and a half minutes.
