    I never want to lose but I also know it is easier to fix problems after a loss than after a win. When you win after playing bad it give a false sense of security. We didnt deserve to win the game and the team that played better won the game.
    Nevada deserved to win the game.

    EFFORT IS PARAMOUNT!! Lack of quality of effort is the major contributing factor to our season long inconsistency. We have had lots of wins this season but Coach Spoon's team or program should never allow the scoreboard be the judge of whether her or her program has achieved success. Success is a standard that ranks above winning. EFFORT IS PARAMOUNT The great coaches embrace the belief that success, as measured by each one of us individually, is a peace of mine derived from making the absolute and complete effort to do the best of which you are capable. The quality of your effort to realize your potential is first and foremost. THAT IS SUCCESS. It is different than winning--beating an opponent in basketball, business or life.
    It is important to recognize that success and winning are two very different concepts and that success is the foremost of the two. Great coaches are always more upset if their team won but didn't work up to their potential than if their team lost playing at their best. This represents a radically different approach to leadership---a universe apart from "winning is everything." Great coaches and their teams have a fierce competitive instinct and a desire to win coupled with this deep desire and abiding conviction that success(absolute and complete quality of effort) supersedes and often precedes victory. Fully appreciating this approach to competition, teambuilding , and leadership is a characteristic most great coaches and great programs have in common. This approach and belief is how they are able to teach their teams to win. They teach those in their program to believe in a standard higher than victory and this is a major reason why their programs are able to win over and over and over again. They teach their players to grasp the fact that they must be able to simultaneously and ferociously "play to win" and yet not allow the results--score,titles or championships-- to be the measure of their success. Their players are taught that their is a more important contest--one beyond winning--that goes on inside each of us. It is the struggle, the effort, we make "to be the best we can be" This is the fundamental component of consistency, winning and perfection of performance and excution. It is the prerequisite for building and achieving personal perfection called competitive greatness.
