The Great Locker Room Speech

There is no place on earth like a football locker room. Each locker room is unique, with its own set of rules, cliques and hierarchy. The head coach is the undisputed CEO of the locker room. When he speaks, players listen. Each coach has his own style to the locker room speech. Some are fire and brimstone, some are calm and collective. All have message.

Two of the most respected coaches in the history of the game square off in today's round -- Mack Brown and Barry Alvarez. Both coaches give their speeches before or after college football's most historic game, the Rose Bowl. Brown addresses his team (and celebrity fans) moments after Texas defeated USC in 2005 for the national title. Alvarez returned to sidelines as the interim coach for the Badgers in the 2013 Rose Bowl.

Now is your chance to select the best college football locker room speech. Vote in the right rail for today's speech. The winner will advance to the next round and a champion will be crowned right before the kickoff of the 2014 season.
