My daily post theme for 2017 is on Colleges and Universities.
The plan for starting my blog back in 2014 was at the urging of fellow coaching colleagues to share posts on leadership and/or motivation. Somehow that idea got derailed and turned into daily posts on one theme for an entire year.
In 2014 my daily posts were on the “Beer of the Day”, 2015 it was “A Friend of a Friend”, 2016 I wrote about “North Carolina”, and for 2017 I will focus on “Colleges and Universities”.
I have been associated with colleges since I was 18 and I love them. I have coached/worked at four different universities and in my professional and personal travels visited 100’s more. Each college has something in its history that I want to share that to me make it unique or personal.

Name of University: University of Mississippi
Location: Oxford MS
It is the first day of March and with it we begin in this country our fascination with college basketball and March Madness. It is a month that will have colleges and their fans endure drama, upsets, and Cinderella stories as the NCAA tournament unfolds.
As much as I love college basketball and I do love it. The excitement that occurs before a college football game with tailgating is something the sport of basketball does not replicate.
There are a lot of great places to tailgate but what takes place at the University of Mississippi is consider by many to be at the top of any list.
Starting on Friday, Rebels fans and students will claim a spot in The Grove, a 10-acre area that morphs into tailgate heaven. Canopies and red cups overwhelm the prime spot, which is more of a picnic than a backyard barbecue.
The Walk of Champions leads players through the arch and into Vaught-Hemingway Stadium. And the Southern hospitality seen in the tailgate becomes raucous one-sided support for Ole Miss.
