Jimbo Fisher: Championships are won through daily habits

Marty Smith has a new interview show on ESPN, and Jimbo Fisher is now the head coach at Texas A&M. Naturally, the two linked up, and since the interview took place in Texas, both men conducted the interview while on horseback.

Smith, on a horse, asked Fisher what he told his new team in his first meeting and Fisher, on a horse, said he told the Aggies that championships are won through habits.

"People say, 'I want to win a championship.' But actually believing it and then having the characteristics in your daily habits to get there, I think that's the big thing. What I always look at: you've got to have priorities. Today, these are my priorities, this, this, this, and this, I have to do this as a person, as a student and as a player, to be successful. If I've got free time, I'll do it. If I don't, I'll stay there until the job's done. I think priorities are huge."
