We would love to help continue the work in your town. Parenting has a role to play, but it is only a part of the equation. He said he could look in the paper everyday and find someone calling him a poor leader and questioning his decisions. The ability for the athletic department to terminate a man who has given so much to the aggie community in the fashion they did, speaks to the rushed and poor decision making they displayed. As a university that prides itself on integrity and honor, we could not have employed a coach that embodied those values more than Mike Sherman did. I remembered John David Crow and the great Jack Pardee.

I had the fortunate opportunity to speak one on one with Tim Cassidy last summer at a dinner and he only said great things about Sherman. Do we really have a winning tradition? If you give yourself time to absorb this, you have my highest regards. Words can not express the respect I have for this man for continueing to lead with passion and integrity despite the difficulites he faced. There is no question Sherman is a football genius and losing him was a big loss for the University. Reading this post in 2013, it is amazing to see what has unfolded.
Even the Longhorn celebration was muted in the mob. He had the opportunity to win and for whatever reason, he did not. It is my belief that all student-athletes should take an ethics class early on in their college career. He had all the promising qualitites such as honesty, integrity, loyalty, and character. As head football coach, Sherman had his own standard for character and performance.
Thanks to Mike Sherman for helping us to remember what colleges and universities are here to help young people learn from great role models. Know I have loved every blissful, exhausting, sometimes gross, second of it. Many people in the class voted to terminate him, and they have a strong basis for that. Gene Stallings was the Coach he head-coached St Louis Cardinal later and losing to tu was always a norm. This is leadership that is rarely found in the business world or in athletics. Listen to Dire Straits Brothers in Arms if you don't get this. That could not be more true than it is now.
Your legs and arms reach out to explore, but you turn back, seeking assurance. You clearly disagree and you are very much entitled to that opinion, but I do not think this is the place to spur such a debate. Shaub, thank you for the well written article. Shaub mentioned about his character. However this disappointment was quickly lost as the success of our team unfolded last fall. The lasting impact that coaches have on these players transcends the sport, and the most important lessons are easily applied off the field.
It was a shame to lose him, but we can only hope to have more like him in the future. In essence, accepting a leadership position is making the statement that you are most capable or most qualified to effectively handle the worst situations and organize efforts and resources at the most inconvenient of times. By writing this, Kipling lives forever. Part of it is engraved on the entrance to Wimbledon to remind players of what it is that makes a man. A statement like that has to make Mike Sherman smile wistfully. Along with film, he has also written stage plays video art projects and illustrated novels as well as other forms of artistic expression.
I have never heard him blame others. I have high hopes for our aggie future. I remember reading this blog back in December and agreeing fully with everything that you wrote. He was struck by misfortune once more when the bank where he kept his savings collapsed, leaving him penniless. If this statement is true, then every Aggie football player ever coached by Sherman got the greatest gift from being on that football team. But I can say with confidence that he was wasting his time doing so.
Honestly, I did not know much about coach Sherman before he left. From reading some of the comments already posted, it clearly is a controversial topic. I have listened to him talk many times and always left feeling encouraged. Kipling took you on his journey, which many of us go through, but he let you know you can win, you can survive whatever and everything you put your mind to. If you can talk with crowds and keep your virtue, Or walk with Kings - nor lose the common touch, If neither foes nor loving friends can hurt you, If all men count with you, but none too much: If you can fill the unforgiving minute With sixty seconds' worth of distance run, Yours is the Earth and everything that's in it, And - which is more - you'll be a Man, my son! His father wants to be hands-on with the upbringing of his son and has demands about his upbringing, but his business requires his time during the hours from 4:30 to 9 during the week when Léo is done with school. We lost a great leader and was too fast in pulling the trigger to let coach Sherman go.
You'll Be a Man Tu seras un homme You Will Be a Man. It is far more important to me, and many other Aggies, to have public figures, such as Sherman, represent this school with integrity and class than to simply win games. His mother was one of the talented and beautiful Macdonald sisters, four of whom married remarkable men, Sir Edward Burne-Jones, Sir Edward Poynter, Alfred Baldwin, and John Lockwood Kipling himself. He turned our program around and made it into an environment of winners on and off the field. Overall, the blog is great for anyone who aspires to be a leader and want to understand the reality of the role.
Coach Sherman is clearly a man of integrity. I remember thinking how unjust it was what was happening to Sherman and his family when all of this was happening. Just look at Arkansas and Bobby Petrino. That speaks volumes and there are few people that would handle that kind of situation with as much class and honor as Sherman did. It doesn't even make any sense. Excellence, integrity, leadership, loyalty, respect, and selfless service are values we cherish at this university, and Coach Sherman upheld these values both on and off the field.
