The difference in programs

I just read two articles today, one from ESPN quoting Tim Floyd after his beating to Oregon, and one from Darren Collison on Sunday from the Times.  It's just funny how different our programs are, and I'm glad for it.  First, Floyd:

"It was embarrassing," Young said.

USC erased some of its 39-point deficit only after Oregon went to its bench. The Trojans would have set a record for the largest title-game loss in the tourney's 10-year history, but a late scoring spurt saved them the embarrassment by two points.

"We won't be watching any film on this game," USC coach Tim Floyd said.

Now Collison:

Collison said that he had no trouble watching film of UCLA's two straight losses. "Why not watch?" he said. "We're trying to do something really special here, and you have to go through tough times to do that."

Exactly.  This is the difference between a program that is going somewhere, and a program that is just a blip on the radar.  Ben makes his players learn from their mistakes.  If we have a bad game, he makes sure our players watch game tape even more, and then he makes them sweat in practice.  I wouldn't be surprised if Tim let his players skip their next practice so that they can just "shake it off".
