The Essence of Muddy Waters

News of Muddy's passing is being printed across the country and most articles are a rewrite of the same story or Hillsdale's release, but I saw a quote in the Lansing State Journal that really sums up why so many people were deeply touched by this man's life. More than winning football games, this is why Muddy was so great:

"He’ll be remembered as a very generous person who gave his time to a lot of young men and mentored a lot of young men,” said “Murky” Waters, who played at MSU under Duffy Daugherty in the late 1960s. “He didn’t care if a kid was a first-stringer or a last-stringer, if he had a problem, my dad would bend over backward to solve it.

“He believed in everybody.”
