How about a nice story on a more reserved Gopher coach. Tubby Smith wasn't able to do anything with the kids in Cass Lake but he made the trip and talked about leadership to those in attendance.
"Being a leader means you have the willingness to stand for something you believe in and take charge," Smith said. "Leaders have good people around them and people who won’t just say ‘yes’ to them. I try to surround myself with assistant coaches who are strong men that can stand up and fight what they believe in and help us become better people. They have goals, ideas and dreams."
There were a number of great quotes but this article just reminds me how much I appreciated having Smith at the U of Minn.
