Editor’s Note: The following was written by Harold Leeder, editor-in-chief of The New Circle Circular, Lexington’s #1 source of fake news you can’t count on.
When I walked into this office just now I felt the same sense of being overwhelmed by what to call on 3rd down that I felt two years ago. I know you will feel that, too (don’t run the draw, they hate that).
I wish you great happiness here. I never felt the excitement of winning some coaches have described.
There will be very tough times, made even more difficult by criticism you may not think is fair (like the draw thing I mentioned earlier, or when you don’t use your timeouts at the end of close games). I’m not a very good one to give advice; but just don’t let the critics get to you. Also, don’t get blown out by Vanderbilt.
You will be our Coach when you read this note. I wish you well. I wish your family well.
Your success is now our team’s success. I am rooting for you.
Good luck – Joker
