?Rice's Football Coach Jess Neely, explaining his team's 24-0 defeat by Georgia Tech: "I think we oversold the boys on their steady play the week before against Louisiana State; against Tech they were almost stationary."

? Art Rooney, millionaire owner of the Pittsburgh Steelers: "You know what's nice about owning one of these clubs? You get to sit in the press box, ride the elevator if there is one, eat free hot dogs. You can't beat that."

? Jimmie Dykes on Jimmy Piersall: "I didn't have a bit of trouble with him. He can play ball. If anybody thinks he's crazy, they're the ones who are crazy."

? George Shaw, Minnesota Viking quarterback after hearing Baltimore Colt fans booing their own Johnny Unitas, "If all those people were as perfect in their jobs as they want Unitas to be on every play, they'd all be presidents of their companies."
