That feels very good to say and type. For this team, after so much turmoil and adversity, to play its way to the championship title of the SEC regular season, is something I pray I never forget.
Without going into all this team has overcome, watching them draw closer together and fight for each other was sheer joy.
Thank you Coach Pearl. Thank you coaching staff and all those behind the scenes for all you've done. Most of all, a large THANK YOU to all the players. Every single one of you.
