just to add tomlins perspective-
What is the psychology of going into a game as an underdog?
That is probably some of the games Hines (Ward) likes to play with himself to get himself ready to play. Most guys do that. Hines is better than most. Hines has a ‘me against the world’ mentality. Hines still believes that a lot of people doubt his ability and that is the driving force for him. The reality is that they are a very good team and we think we are capable of being a very good team. This is not an Appalachian State at Michigan football game we are going into this weekend. They are good and we have to play well to have a chance to win. If we don’t, we are probably going to lose.
