- America's High-Five
For years, the team has long been said to play with a chip on it's shoulder. When no one gives them a chance, they find a way to win. To symbolically represent that chip, each player brought a poker chip to yesterday's game against Penn State.
Both on the field and in the spirit. And if the coaches deserve credit for adapting to its personnel, the players deserve credit for re-discovering the theme:
The poker chip.
Every player had to bring one to the game Saturday. Literally.
“Khari Willis said we’ve got to bring that chip mentality back,” explained Dantonio, speaking of his senior safety.
“Bring a poker chip with you. So, everybody got a poker chip,” he said.
But they didn’t just bring a literal chip. They walked in and slammed it down on a hard surface.
