Some fascinating games last night. Auburn had Florida beat in the O-Dome until they made two bone-headed mistakes in the last few seconds. Boston College (2-10, ACC; 6-19, overall) beat undefeated Syracuse AT Syracuse. Just goes to show how important concentration and execution are in practically every game.

I have said before that this team seems to have ADD. What other explanation is there for this constant "losing focus"? You do what you are taught to do ALL THE TIME. If playing the game right bores you, go play playground ball! Or maybe the Globetrotters are hiring. Winning teams win because they do the right things out of habit, not because they are constantly cajoled into doing the right things. This is a mark of maturity in any area of life, and lasting success of any kind can hardly be won without it.

10 losses and now they "re-focus". Well, isn't that nice.
