?Jerry Mays, defensive captain of the Kansas City Chiefs, on his preference in football shoes: "I'd much prefer to wear high tops rather than low cuts, but my son won't let me. He says they make me look old fashioned."
? Charles Scott, North Carolina basketball star, whose anticipated bonus would shrink if the NBA and ABA settle their differences: "A merger will make law school a lot more appealing."
?Ray Morrison, 84-year-old former football coach at SMU, Vanderbilt, Temple and Austin College, after recalling incidents in close games that his teams had won: "I like to rehash those games, but somehow I never replay games like the one in 1916 when I was coaching at SMU and Rice beat us 146-3."
