The Ohio State Buckeyes have reportedly added quotes from both Bill Belichick and Kobe Bryant to their team meeting room for this season.

Ohio State meeting room has quotes from Belichick, Bryant

The Ohio State Buckeyes are expected to put up a very good effort this season in order to make a run at repeating their championship success from last season. It isn’t going to be easy, but head coach Urban Meyer has put together the type of roster that is capable of doing just that. They have quite a few awesome quotes in their team meeting room to draw motivation from, and they’ve added two of them this year.

According to a report and picture, the Buckeyes have added quotes from New England Patriots coach Bill Belichick and NBA superstar Kobe Bryant to their meeting room wall.

Having both of those guys on the wall is a very good decision. They are two of the best players and coaches in their respective positions, and they are also known as two of the most competitive guys in their sports as well. Belichick is one of the best head coaches in NFL history, while Bryant is going to go down as one of the top basketball players to ever take the court.

Quotes don’t necessarily pump players up as much as they should, but some players truly do feed off of those type of comments.

One saying that rings true in each and every sport, is that hard work beats talent when talent fails to work hard. If the Buckeyes truly want to come away with a championship, they have to work hard and can’t afford to get lazy. Looking up to both of the new quotes on the wall is a very good example for all of them and they need to strive to be like both of them.
