They gave up 53 points all season. "There were three other teams at least that were clearly, visibly, unquestionably more talented," says Pioli. "We outtoughed them. We outthought them. We outconditioned them." And this is when Pioli started to think about what a team of intensely devoted and disciplined players could do.
