About this title:

Synopsis: This book contains nearly 700 of the most memorable, hilarious, inspirational and motivational quotes in the history of college football up through 2013 SEC Media Days. It features a cast of over a hundred characters: coaches, players, announcers, journalists, authors and even a few Presidents of the United States. Legendary coaches like Bear Bryant, Woody Hayes, Darrel K Royal, Bobby Bowden and Lou Holtz produced so many classic quotes during their careers, they each received their own chapter. You’ll also find memorable quips from these iconic coaches included in sections throughout the book. The book begins with the chapter ‘Hilarious Quips and One-Liners’, which is a collection of the funniest quips, insults, zingers and one-liners ever uttered, with multiple appearances by Steve Spurrier, Bobby Bowden and Lou Holtz. The next chapter, ‘Football Down South’, is a collection of the greatest quotes from and about the Southeastern Conference. With seven straight national championships as of publication in August 2013, the SEC deserves this spot. If you are going through a rough patch and need to be inspired, flip immediately to ‘Life Lessons from the Legends’. The wisdom and knowledge contained in this section is timeless and transcends the sport of football. ‘Texas Football And Royalisms’ is a collection of the greatest words ever said about football in the Lone Star State, plus dozens of classic quips from Coach Darrell K Royal. In ‘From the Heartland’ you’ll find quotes from Big Ten country legends like Woody Hayes, Bob Devaney and Bo Schembechler. The best quotes from Notre Dame coaches Lou Holtz, Knute Rockne and Frank Leahy can be found in ‘Luck of the Irish’. West Coast football is represented in ‘Pacific Coast Pigskin’, which contains quotes from John McKay, Pete Carroll and Chip Kelly. The latter part of the book contains individual chapters on topics ranging from Keith Jackson and Twitter to Playoffs and U.S. Presidents. Poring over the words of brilliant coaches and incredible players to compile the best quotes was an incredibly rewarding experience. I will feel blessed and humbled if the words contained within this book serve to motivate, educate and inspire just one reader to set high goals and achieve them. Highlights include: “There are two things every man in America thinks he can do: work a grill and coach football.” - Rutgers head coach Greg Schiano "But the real tragedy was that 15 hadn't been colored yet." - Florida coach Steve Spurrier addressing a group of Gator boosters in 1991 by telling them that a fire had broken out at Auburn University's football dorm, which resulted in 20 books burning. “There are many people who don`t know what real pressure is. Some people are born on third base and go through life thinking they hit a triple.” - Oklahoma coach Barry Switzer “Well, the Southeastern Conference season has begun. I have it on good authority that other college football teams around the country will also be playing games this fall.” - Sports Illustrated columnist and NPR contributor Frank Deford in 2012 “If you're bored with life - you don't get up every morning with a burning desire to do things - you don't have enough goals.” - Notre Dame coach Lou Holtz “You've got to think lucky. If you fall into a mudhole, check your back pocket. You might have caught a fish." - Texas coach Darrell K Royal “I will not permit 30 men to travel 400 miles merely to agitate a bag of wind.” - Cofounder of Cornell University Andrew Dickson White, who is believed to have prohibited the school’s football team from traveling to Ann Arbor to face Michigan in 1873. This quote appeared in the November 7, 1944 edition of the New York Times.
