ESPN’s College Gameday just did a feature on Alabama Crimson Tide QB Greg McElroy. As many of you know, McElroy has not lost a game since the 8th grade when his team lost 8-6 to Cross Timbers Middle School. The following are some great leadership quotes I wanted to pass along to .
- “In trying to do too much to win, you make mistakes. He doesn’t do that.” – Head Coach Nick Saban
- “He is so positive and gives the team confidence.” – RB Mark Ingram
- “I made a decision in the 8th grade I didn’t want that experience (losing) again.” – McElroy
- “If you take what the defense gives you, they will eventually give you the game.” - Coach Saban
- “What is a game manager? I want to be a field general. A field general sounds more explosive.” – McElroy
- “He is so focused. McElroy is a veteran and extension of Offensive Coordinator Jim McElwain.” – ESPN’s Kirk Herbstreit
McElroy will lose again one day, but not today. Alabama will defeat the Florida Gators 27-14. Time to make your prediction.
