? Woody Hayes, Ohio State coach: "When we lose a game, nobody's madder at me than me. When I look in the mirror in the morning, I want to take a swing at me. I'm only interested in pleasing one fellow, and that's Woody Hayes. He's the hardest of all to please."

? Augie Donatelli, retired National League umpire, asked if he had ever made any bad calls: "Now, what the hell. Do you think I'd admit to that?"

? Bob Kuechenberg, Miami Dolphin left guard, on the hidden asset of playing with a steel pin in his broken arm: "The unusual thing is that ever since they put this pin in I've been getting great reception on my car radio. I wonder what'll happen when I try to get on an airplane."

? Don Canham, University of Michigan athletic director, on the financial future for college athletics: "There is not an athletic department in the country where officials are optimistic about the financial outlook five years from now. Not at our place, not at Notre Dame, not at USC. To me, that's frightening."
