Character Matters

4 December 2003

Apparently, I wasn’t the only one who was deeply moved by the way Sylvester Croom handled his introductory press conference at Mississippi State University. ESPN continues to cover the story. In a world of big money sports, fierce competition on every front and repeated scandals, this is a guy you want in charge. He seems to have the perspective that he’s got five years (or less) to influence some 17-and 18-year olds for good. I hope he can retire from Mississippi State in 20 or 30 years a happy man.
