Coach Eddie Robinson R.I.P.

 :'( :'( :'( :'( :'( :'( :'(

My first classic game I ever went to was GSU vs MissValley St. in Chitown and just to hear the crowd roared when his name was mentioned over the PA system during the introduction of GSU football team was amazing and Coach paved the way for many Black football players to enter the NFL.

coming straight from GSU website (bcuz other newsmedia outlet does not give enough summary on his legacy)  peace and blessing to Eddie Robinson's family, GSU, SWAC, HBCUs and football fans who enjoyed watching GSU football program during ER's legacy.

As a product of a SWAC school, Eddie Robinson represented excellence in football even though I didn't attend Grambling.  I remember going to our games against Grambling just to catch a glimpse of the legendary coach on the sidelines.  As one of my boys at the time put it...He was our Bear Bryant.  Coach Robinson will always be remembered as a pioneer, a great coach, but more importantly for being a leader of men.

Coach Eddie Robinson....in my mind...is the undisputed GREATEST Black head coach ever.I completely agree with the assessment of him being our Bear Bryant.I am deeply,deeply saddened to hear of his passing...so saddened that I couldn't even click the link that was so generously provided.I will peep it,though,as a way of paying my final respects.Just not now...
