- Reaction score
Sylvester Croom was speaking to a group of Mississippi State alumni in Louisiana last night. He had high regards for Nick Saban. His comments about Nick Saban were that Nick was a great evaluator of talent. Sylvester said that he didn't pay any attention to what other schools were doing in recruiting except for LSU, because Nick could spot a good player that no one else knows about. Sylvester also said that he danced a jig when Nick announced that he was going to Miami, because he no longer had to face him. One comment that was made was that Nick Saban showed a lot of class last season, because LSU could have put up 75 points on Mississippi State but didn't because Nick turned it down a notch. I can't remember the final score, but it was like 52-0 or something like that.
