A Little Wisdom from a Wise Coach

ark-aub

Since my beloved Arkansas Razorbacks are playing Auburn today on the plains of Alabama, my mind wanders back to an old story that I heard about longtime Auburn football coach, James Ralph “Shug” Jordan (pronounced Jer-dun, like it should be).

Shug was explaining to one of his assistant coaches the kind of players that he wanted him to recruit. He said, “You know those players that get knocked down and they don’t get up? Don’t recruit them. But, you know those players that get knocked down, and get up. Then, they get knocked down again, and they get up. Then, they get knocked down again and they get up?” The assistant said, “So you want me to recruit the players that keep getting up?” Shug said, “No. I want you to recruit the players that keep knockin’ them down.”

Go, Hogs, go!
