That sounds great in theory... but realistically if you "poll" the players

and the majority of them don't want to play... what kind of effort can you really expect if you decide to go against that feedback? I know in an ideal world every player would cherish every chance he gets to put on the jersey and represent VT... but that's not realistic. If 70% of your players say "No we don't want to go to a bowl" and the AD says "You're going" then I have to imagine the result would be a lackluster performance. In general trying to force groups of people to do something they don't want to is not a recipe for success.
