Mississippi State’s associate athletic director for media relations is Bill Martin, and he was a staffer at LSU for many years before heading to Starkville. He was even there for the national championships the Tigers won in 2003 and 2007 and received rings for each year.
Thus, Martin was understandably perturbed when he returned home from the Bulldogs’ game against Texas A&M in College Station to find that a burglar broke into his house and stole said rings. Martin took to Twitter to express his outrage.
Martin, of course, has every right to feel this way. Getting one’s house robbed is not only an invasion of property and privacy, but a violation that one feels personally. On top of that, those championship rings are truly priceless.
Hopefully, they turn up and those responsible are punished accordingly.
