Quote of the day on the crimson tide:
“Sylvester [Croom] was the first black football coach in SEC history. Before he was hired, my goal was to create a national conference. We were a bit regional. As long as we had shown that we couldn’t provide opportunities for everyone, we wouldn’t be the kind of national league that I wanted us to be. With the hiring of Sylvester, it was a huge story, especially outside the state of Mississippi. It allowed us to become that national conference that we wanted to become. – Former SEC Commissioner Mike Slive on what he considered his greatest achievement
