    Ugh...

    Did he give an acceptance speech? I'm sure he'd jump at the chance to reminiscent on how great Alabama is, and how we were never good enough for him, while also throwing us under the bus for not giving him more time. No sarcasterisks, lol.

    Yeah imagine how great this would've been if he was actually HC material. To bad he wasn't.

    Happy for Coach Croom. He is being inducted as a player I believe. Even though he wasn't a good HC, he was still a good player and good football coach.

    And he had zero business being a HC in the SEC....and his record and attitude (both during and after) support that statement.

    But of course we hired him and let him torpedo our already sinking ship.

    Whether or not on if he should of been a SEC Head Coach, doesn't mean he wasn't a good football coach.

    Whatever. Sure. If YOU say so.

    He was a position coach in the NFL. You said "OC", but admittedly I'm unaware of him in that position (let alone what success he had....I'd bet blind it was far from great, btw). That being said...

    He should've NEVER been given the keys to our program. And he should've been thankful he had them. Instead, he lamented not getting the Bama gig, never thought we were good enough to be graced with his presence, never had a competent offense, refused to adapt and make changes, and threw us under the GD bus when we finally pulled the plug.

    He maybe a good person and decent "football guy" (probably a more appropriate euphemism instead of your "good football coach" moniker)...

    ..but he exuded entitlement and total delusion while the HC of MSU.

    ****. Him. (I really can't say that more emphatically)

    He was the OC for the Lions during the late 90s. He was in the NFL for over 20 years. Sorry if you think a decent football guy can hang in the league for that amount of time then you really don't know football.
