I met someone today. I didn’t get to shake his hand. I didn’t get to see him face to face; but, I felt as though I got to know a bit about him and how he thinks.

He was on the spot. He was being tested. He was being broadcast around the world. Yet, he said, ”it’s not about me.” Too infrequently do we encounter people who honestly say, ”it’s not about me!”

It’s a tough business coaching college football. It’s not the steadiest of career ladders one can climb. Yet, in a few, brief comments, I felt as though we met a winner who could be with us for a long time to come!
