Croom on the Teleconference

by

Nothing particularly interesting from today’s SEC coaches teleconference. But some tidbits nonetheless from MSU coach Sylvester Croom:

• On using an off week to make changes: “At this point, you pretty much have used all the people you can use. You can’t make wholesale changes because it’s extremely difficult.”

• On the loss of Michael Brown, et al., to offseason troubles, and the loss of injured players: “Well, we lost some good football players. We weren’t a very deep team. We lost five guys that had significant minutes. Our most talented offensive lineman, our most talented defensive lineman, one of our most talented linebackers, a guy who’d started at corner for us. … We lose (Jamar) Chaney at middle linebacker, we’re forced to move (Dominic) Douglas from weakside back to the middle. In some ways, it’s like we lost three linebackers because of that. It’s taken Douglas half the season to get comfortable at that. … (The Brown situation), combined with injuries we’ve had, we’ve lost 10 guys that would’ve had significant playing time for us this season.”

• On senior leadership: “When you’ve got it, it’s like having a million dollars in your pocket. When you don’t have it, it’s like walking around with your pockets hanging out empty.”

• On last year’s 13 seniors: “From a character standpoint, they left a big hole. … They gave us not good, (but) great leadership.”

    What’s that Coach? Did you use all the lighter fluid and matches on Clark’s redshirt?
