?Archie Moore, asked how he thought Joe Frazier would do against Muhammad Ali when they meet in the new year, drew closer and whispered in the ear of the inquirer: "I'll tell you something. In my book, Frazier will knock him out."

? Ben Davidson. Oakland Raiders defensive end, on business in his nightspots: "It's picked up since the Kansas City game. They see your name in the paper, and they get thirsty, I guess."

? Mickey Mantle, on his baseball career: "During my 18 years I came to bat almost 10,000 times. I struck out about 1,700 times and walked maybe 1,800 times. You figure a ballplayer will average about 500 at bats a season. That means I played seven years in the major leagues without even hitting the ball."

? Woody Hayes of Ohio State: "It worries me that there's supposed to be two coaches meaner than I am. I would hate to have them start referring to me as 'Good Old Woody.' "
