? Tim Wood, Indianapolis high school senior, who broke the world record for consecutive sit-ups with 15,525 in 10 hours, asked what he wanted to do when he finished: "Go to the bathroom."

? Babe McCarthy, former coach of the Dallas Chaparrals, after recruiting for a few weeks as the University of Georgia's new basketball coach: "I'd forgotten what college coaching was about. I've been on a gravy train for six years."

? Lance Alworth, Dallas Cowboy flanker, on San Diego-bound Johnny Rodgers, the Heisman Trophy winner who was 25th choice in the NFL draft: "I think the pro clubs missed the boat on him. So he weighs only 175. That's what I weighed when I turned pro. Tommy McDonald wasn't any bigger. And Rodgers has more moves than McDonald."

?Lynn (Pappy) Waldorf, former University of California football coach: "I was a college coach for 33 years, and I never believed a boy was too small. If he could play, I'd find a spot for him. You can't have too many good players. Good players win games for you, not big players."
