College football coaches are constantly finding new ways to motivate their players. One new trend this offseason has been for programs to bring in professional coaches to speak about what it takes to win - both on the playing field and in life. Alabama had two such speakers last week - ESPN's Herm Edwards and Super Bowl champion Ray Lewis.
Today, the Tennessee Volunteers will be getting a visit from another national champion - Miami Heat coach Erik Spoelstra. The school tweeted out the news this morning.
While football and basketball are much different games, the same core values apply for preparation. Maybe Spo will bring LeBron James with him - then he'd really have their attention.
