Facebook co-founder and CEO Mark Zuckerberg is starting a tour of all fifty states, and of course his first stop is Alabama. There he got to hang and take a tour of the University of Alabama with head coach Nick Saban...


Per Zuck's Facebook page...
quote:

We stopped by the University of Alabama and sat down with Coach Saban. We talked about what it takes to build a world class football organization. Many of the same things go into building a good company and a winning football program -- a focus on recruiting, developing talent and setting high expectations.

We also got lunch with some of the Alabama Football players who come from all over the country to be part of this program. We talked about about the pressures of being a student athlete -- not only the personal pressure of achieving their goals of making it to the NFL, but also having the hopes of their community ride of their success.

We all need to be part of something bigger than ourselves. Communities can form around all kinds of things -- churches, schools, teams -- and it's clear that for a lot of folks in Alabama, college football is an important part of their community.

I didn't realize anyone outside of the southeast/uneducated states gave two shits about college football. How'd Zuck get roped into this?

Yep the same things needed to build a great business. Hiring and out paying everyone else to make sure you have the best talent available.
