Well said Charley. I think somewhere in this wonderful expression of honour, should be maybe an interior artistic ring around the whole place with sayings like the one above, as well as others. Some of my favorite expressions from Coach Rob are "You gotta let him know that he has a man in front of him, and that he is gonna hurt tonight". The other one which surfaced after the first game with Morgan State University; was "Football games are won and loss on the field, not on the phone". There was a controversial call made by an official saying that the Grambling player went out of bounds or did not cross the goal line. The MSU coach contacted Coach Rob the following Monday saying "How do you want the games results be stated, it is clearly evident from watching the video tapes that Grambling scored and won the game. The Oldsmobile commercials that are still around on YouTube provided this one, "It's such a pleasure being pulled along with the Oldsmobile Front Wheel Drive".
