?Gary Hammond, SMU's senior quarterback, after his final game: "You start out in college worrying about growing up, and when you finish you're worrying about growing old."

? Frank McGuire, South Carolina basketball coach: "The Cable Car Classic takes us to San Francisco. We've already chartered two jets for the trip. Our kids get to the West Coast, to Chicago twice, to Texas, to New York and to Las Vegas. I'm not running a basketball show. I've got a geography class."

? Bob Cousy, Cincinnati Royal coach, on the sparse crowd of 2,379 that showed up for a recent Cincinnati game in Baltimore: "I looked around and saw a small crowd. I thought we were playing at home."
