? Al McGuire, Marquette basketball coach, on the touring Soviet Union team: "It's strange to see so many tall, thin white guys with 1936 uniforms on."

?Elliott Oppenheim, Community College of Baltimore football coach, praising his players after a loss: "They have accepted all the responsibilities of football players like men. We got our heads handed to us in the homecoming game, but every one of them showed up at the dance."

? Joe Theismann, on what it's like being a third-string quarterback for the Redskins: "It's like when you have three wheels for a bike and you only need two. One has to lean against the wall. Well, here I am."
