Renowned preacher/motivational speaker Eric Thomas is a Michigan State alum, and he used Michigan State's improbable win over Michigan as the inspiration for an incredible motivational video. 

The video was filmed with inside the Spartans' indoor practice facility. Standing at midfield and repeating the mantra "Never give up, Never give in," Thomas implores his audience that with mental toughness, any adversity can be overcome. He draws on MSU's miracle win and his own personal life experiences as proof his message is legit. 

The video is almost eight minutes long, but it's worth a watch. If you don't get chills at least once or twice during it, you're either not alive, or you're a Michigan fan.
