Dear Student Body:
As we begin our journey to Detroit and the 2012 MAC Championship Game, I want to share our program blueprint and the importance of you, the student body, to be “All-In.”
Passion... Discipline... Toughness... Faith... these words signify the four pillars of our football program.
We believe that teaching young men to be better people while simultaneously developing them into better football players will build a foundation for sustained success.
This foundation guides our daily actions and behaviors in our desire to create a championship program that will make you proud.
As a football program steeped in the tradition of competitive success without sacrificing academic excellence, the rallying call this year is more than ideal. “All-In” is not just a slogan. It is a commitment.
This is a commitment to excellence in everything we do.
From the way we compete daily on the practice field, to work effectively in the classroom, to the ultimate goal of becoming champions, our commitment to each other is to be “All-In … All the Time.”
We want you to have the same feeling when you experience Miami football … “All-In … All the Time.”
“All-In” also is a commitment that speaks to the passionate pursuit of excellence we all share as an institution of higher learning.
On Sept. 8, we have the opportunity as both a campus and a community to unite as one at Yager Stadium.
What could Game Day become with the entire student body at Yager?
When, 16,000 students make the walk down Weeb Ewbank Drive to Yager Stadium, history will be made, renewed excitement will be felt and UNITED we can accomplish anything … the epitome of “All-In.”
I look forward to seeing you on Saturday, Sept. 8, as we kickoff the home football season.
Love and Honor,
