Sly Croom was introduced as the new Head Coach for Mississippi State University this afternoon. I must admit that he wasn’t my first choice, but I’ve been very impressed with what I’ve heard about him and impressed with Croom himself after viewing the press conference. I was (and still am a touch) concerned about his being out of college coaching for the past 17 years. But I think he’ll be able to jump back into it fairly easily. I think lots depends on the staff that he assembles.

These next two months are critical as far as recruiting goes. I’m very interested to see how it all turns out.

LSU is getting a raw deal, Steve. I’m not going to jump on any Tiger Bandwagon. But I have been hoping for LSU success for the past few weeks. I really wish you guys would get a shot at the Big Game, but it just doesn’t look like it’s going to happen.
