My Alma Mater, Mississippi State University, has had a pathetic excuse for a football team since the turn of this century. The loss in the egg bowl, against our biggest rivals, the Ole Miss Rebels, had to be the straw that broke the camel’s back. Losing 45-0 is an embarrassment that can’t go unnoticed.
Today, Sylvester Croom, head football coach for MSU resigned. Its about time. He has only had 1 winning season in his 5 years compiling a 21-38 record. Considering MSU is in the SEC, considered by many the strongest conference in the NCAA, there is no excuse to not be able to recruit talent and field a good team. Croom went 4-8 this season, making $1.7 million. I’d have to say, after seeing the computer labs that we were given to work with while I was a student there, there are a lot better places that kind of money could have been spent.
