?Charley McClendon, LSU football coach, on playing golf with Lee Trevino: "He's the only man I've ever known to talk on his backswing."

? George Culver, Houston pitcher, after opposing 6'7", 285-pound Frank Howard in an exhibition game: "You don't mind facing a guy like Howard unless he hits it up the middle. If he does, he takes you with it."

?Ed Khayat, Philadelphia Eagle coach, asked if Running Back Ron Bull might change his mind about retiring: "Before ecology, you got a lot of that. Come autumn and the smell of burning leaves, a guy would decide he wanted to play again. Now, because of pollution laws, you can't burn leaves."
