Akron's athletic department released a nice video last night entitled "The Dawn of Bowden Ball" that features the Zips putting in some serious off season work.
Bowden addressed the team before one workout about midway through the clip, just before they cut to guys dripping in sweat.
"Everything you do, you have a choice on. You've got a choice right now. Your making that choice, in your mind, right now whether your going to have a great day, or an average day, or a sorry day. Your deciding for yourself whether I'm going to be in the front, in the back, whether to go full (speed) or whether to go half (speed). Decide to be a champion."
