Default Great coach speak !

Just for fun list your favorite coach speaks. Spurrier had many but my 3 favorite are....

Ohio St. was leading 42-0 in a game and score again with less than a minute to play. Woody Hayes went for two on the play making it 50-0. When he was asked after the game why he went for two he said, "because they wouldn't let me go for 3"

Lou Holtz was asked after a game about the execution of his offense to which he replied..."Well we thought about it, but we thought it might be a little harsh."

I think Woody Hayes said this after asked about not passing more in the game, "When you pass the ball one of three things can happen...and two of those are bad."

Great moments.....

Better than Holtz's quote was the one by the first coach of the NFL's Buccaneers (forget his name... John something). He was asked how he felt about his team's execution and he said "I'm in favor of it!"

1 - In response to a question about his team's execution - "I'm all in favour of it."2 - On an interception thrown by Steve DeBerg in 1984 that cost the Bucs a game against the Giants - "It was thrown to nobody. Well, it was thrown to somebody, Harry Carson. But he happened to be playing for the New York Giants at the time. It would have been a good pass if Harry had been playing for us." 3 - After a particularly heavy loss - "The bus leaves in an hour - anyone who needs a shower, take one." 4 - On losing a key game - "I told our players that there were 700 million Chinese people in the world who didn't even know the game was played. The next week, I got five letters from China asking "What happened?" 5 - After the Bucs broke their 26-game losing streak - "Three or four plane crashes and we're in the playoffs." 6 - On recruiting his son John to play for USC and then the Bucs - "I had an advantage - I slept with his mother." 7 - On the prospect of a late-season trip to Green Bay - "Going there is like winning the 98th prize in a beauty contest with only 97 prizes." 8 - On hearing how Buc kicker Pete Rajecki was nervous about McKay watching him in the 1976 pre-season - "That's unfortuntate as I plan on attending all the games." 9 - At a post-game press conference in 1976 "You guys don't know the difference between a football and a bunch of bananas." 10 - The following week after a media member has dropped off a case of bananas at his door - "You guys don't know the difference between a football and a Mercedez-Benz."

An agent came in to Lombardi's office and wanted to talk.about a player receiving a raise. Lombardi told the agent to hold on just a minute and left the office. he came back in and said, "I just fired that guy. now, what would you like to talk about?"

If memory serves, this is a true story. Back in the day, Vince was HC and GM and he traded the player while his agent was waiting to talk to him.

Other Lou Holtz quotes:

Holtz’s first head coaching job was at The College of William and Mary. The press asked him why he thought they lost a game. “We had too many Marys and not enough Williams.”

"He who complains about how the ball bounces is likely the one who dropped it."

Lou Holtz was coaching Arkansas and the Razorbacks were winning a game that promised a trip to the Orange Bowl, and the students started throwing oranges on the field. Afterward they asked Holtz what he thought about it. “Thank God we’re not going to the Gator Bowl,” he said.

When Corso was the coach at Indiana, he had a small running back that gained over a thousand yards one season, when asked why he recruited such a small running back, Corso answered, "because our o-line opens small holes"
