There's no crying in rugby either. Unless you're Italy and you just beat France.

Thank you "outonleave" and "Drood," I saw this and thought about a "real" man and a coach as I'm sure you also did. Then I think about Calipari and Pitino (who coached my Providence Friars) and many other coaches. A man who can cry, cares, and Sydney Johnson is a man! Maybe Princeton is as far as he goes, but that's far enough for any man. I would hate for him to compromise his love for his players and school to sell out as others have for money. Mr. Johnson, be happy and content where you are, love Princeton and in the following days, if not today, I'm sure they will tespect and love you more. We all should be as lucky. Please be the next Pete Carril (thirty years, but maybe not his style). Coaches, in general, need your example. I wish you happiness.
