Famous quotes containing the words football and/or college:

    In football they measure forty-yard sprints. Nobody runs forty yards in basketball. Maybe you run the ninety-four feet of the court; then you stop, not on a dime, but on Miss Liberty’s torch. In football you run over somebody’s face.
    Donald Hall (b. 1928)

    Mrs. Pilletti: This girl is a college graduate.
    Catherine: They’re the worst. College girls are one step from the street, I tell you.
    Paddy Chayefsky (1923–1981)
