    Well, boys ... I haven't a thing to say. Played a great game...all of you. Great game.

    (He tries to smile.) I guess we just can't expect to win ‘em all. (Rockne pauses and says quietly). I'm going to tell you something I've kept to myself for years -- None of you ever knew George Gipp. It was long before your time. But you know what a tradition he is at Notre Dame...

    (There is gentle, faraway look in his eyes as he recalls the boy's words). And the last thing he said to me -- "Rock," he said - "sometime, when the team is up against it -- and the breaks are beating the boys -- tell them to go out there with all they got and win just one for the Gipper...

    (Knute's eyes become misty and his voice is unsteady as he finishes). I don't know where I'll be then, Rock", he said - "but I'll know about it - and I'll be happy."

    Shoeless Joe Jackson:
    The first two were high and tight, so where do you think the next one's gonna be?

    Archie Graham:
    Well, either low and away, or in my ear.

    Shoeless Joe Jackson:
    He's not gonna wanna load the bases, so look for low and away.

    Archie Graham:
    Right.

    Shoeless Joe Jackson:
    But watch out for in your ear.

    Larry Bird, after the Celtics lost Game 3 of the 1984 finals vs the Lakers.

    “We played like a bunch of sissies.

    If anyone has heard audio of this, let me know. I have read a few people claiming he actually said women, but every major source is sissies

    "Some people say we're lucky. I say luck is what happens when preparation meets opportunity, so we work on our "luck" all week."

    Said by Paul Brown when the guy driving the Team bus to the stadium got lost: " I don't blame you, I blame the man that hired you."

    Another by Paul Brown: "Next time you make it to the end-zone act like you've been there before."

    I think it was Sam Huff when asked about how to stop Jim Brown at the goal line: "We've been studying film on that all week but he's been scoring from 40yds. out."

    Sam Rutigliano during the post-game after a Browns loss: "There are a billion people in China who don't care that we lost today."

    Maybe it was Bum Phillips coaching for the Cowboys. Bob Hayes had recently won the olympics 40 yd dash, setting a new world record. Bob Hayes, the world's fastest human, could not run a mile. Some reporter asked the coach about that and he said "if it is first and a mile, we won't throw it to him!"

    The Super Bowl

    Mahomes to OC Eric Bienemy- "Do we have time to run wasp" (meaning time in the pocket to get the pass off)

    Bienemy- "you like wasp?" In his headset- "he likes wasp"

    Thereby setting the stage for the comeback win.

    Funny John McKay Quotes
    When asked about his team’s execution: “I’m in favor of it.”

    We didn’t tackle well today but we made up for it by not blocking.

    Intensity is a lot of guys that run fast.

    We’ve broken down the expansion teams and they’ve averaged winning 2.7 games their first year, which to me is rather difficult. I figured out the 2, but the .7 has got me wondering what the hell is going on.

    Emotion is highly overrated in football. My wife Corky is emotional as hell but can’t play football worth a damn.

    On his team’s blocking strategy: “Hold when you’re at home and don’t hold when you’re on the road.”

    Kickers are like horse manure. They’re all over the place.

    If you have everyone back from a team that lost ten games, the experience isn’t too important.

    Success is like wrestling a gorilla. You don't quit when you get tired. You quit when the gorilla gets tired!
