Sean Payton delivered an inspiring speech to the North Texas football team just 9 days shy of their matchup with powerhouse LSU. Albeit heavy underdogs, Payton has a panache about him that players respond too. In his first appearance in front of a football team in three months, Payton talked about challenges that faced his Saints team that won the Super Bowl and compared it to North Texas matchup against LSU.
“You’re a week away from playing and no one in Louisiana gives you a chance in that game,” Payton said. “And really no one gave (the Saints) a chance in that Super Bowl. You can go through the history of sport, that’s why you play it.”
