The rest of the world is sweeping past us. The oil and gas of the Texas future is the well-educated mind. But we are still worried about whether Midland can beat Odessa at football.
Mark White

Rugby is a game for barbarians played by gentlemen. Football is a game for gentlemen played by barbarians.
Oscar Wilde

Football is, after all, a wonderful way to get rid of your aggressions without going to jail for it.
Heywood Hale Brown

You really don't want a president who is a football fan. Football combines the worst features of American life. It is violence punctuated by committee meetings.
George Will

Baseball is what we were, and football is what we have become.
Mary McGrory

Baseball players are smarter than football players. How often do you see a baseball team penalized for too many men on the field?
Jim Bouton

When I went to Catholic high school in Philadelphia, we just had one coach for football and basketball. He took all of us who turned out and had us run through a forest. The ones who ran into the trees were on the football team.
George Raveling

Football is not a game but a religion, a metaphysical island of fundamental truth in a highly verbalized, disguised society, a throwback of 30,000 generations of anthropological time.
Arnold Mandell

I do not like football, which I think of as a game in which two tractors approach each other from opposite directions and collide. Besides, I have contempt for a game in which players have to wear so much equipment. Men play basketball in their underwear, which seems just right to me.
Anna Quindlen
Living Out Loud, 1988.

The Rose Bowl is the only bowl I've ever seen that I didn't have to clean.
Erma Bombeck

Rugby football is a game I can't claim absolutely to understand in all its niceties, if you know what I mean. I can follow the broad, general principles, of course. I mean to say, I know that the main scheme is to work the ball down the field somehow and deposit it over the line at the other end and that, in order to squalch this programme, each side is allowed to put in a certain amount of assault and battery and do things to its fellowman which, if done elsewhere, would result in fourteen days without the option, coupled with some strong remarks from the Bench.
P.G. Wodehouse
Very Good, Jeeves, 1930.

Australian Rules football might best be described as a game devised for padded cells, played in the open air.
Jim Murray

I like to believe that my best hits border on felonious assault.
Jack Tatum

He was the only man I ever saw who ran his own interference.
Steve Owen
About Bronko Nagurski.

The tactical difference between Association Football and Rugby with its varieties seems to be that in the former the ball is the missile, in the latter men are the missiles.
Alfred E. Crawley
The Book of the Ball, 1913.

When it comes to football, God is prejudiced - toward big, fast kids.
Chuck Mills

Leadership is a matter of having people look at you and gain confidence, seeing how you react. If you're in control, they're in control.
Tom Landry

Speed, strength, and the inability to register pain immediately.
Reggie Williams
Asked his greatest strengths as a football player.

What about football? Is it a sport or a concussion?
Jim Murray
Los Angeles Times.

The fewer rules a coach has, the fewer rules there are for players to break.
John Madden

To succeed...You need to find something to hold on to, something to motivate you, something to inspire you.
Tony Dorsett

The difference between a successful person and others is not a lack of strength, not a lack of knowledge, but rather a lack of will.
Vince Lombardi

There are several differences between a football game and a revolution. For one thing, a football game usually lasts longer and the participants wear uniforms. Also, there are usually more casualties in a football game. The object of the game is to move a ball past the other team's goal line. This counts as six points. No points are given for lacerations, contusions, or abrasions, but then no points are deducted, either. Kicking is very important in football. In fact, some of the more enthusiastic players even kick the ball, occasionally.
Alfred Hitchcock

The word 'genius' isn't applicable in football. A genius is a guy like Norman Einstein.
Joe Theisman
The NFL quarterback.

Baseball ain't like football . . . you can't make up any trick plays.
Yogi Berra

Leaders aren't born, they are made. And they are made just like anything else, through hard work. And that's the price we'll have to pay to achieve that goal, or any goal.
Vincent Lombardi

If you train hard, you'll not only be hard, you'll be hard to beat.
Herschel Walker

You have to perform at a consistently higher level than others. That's the mark of a true professional.
Joe Paterno

If you can believe it, the mind can achieve it.
Ronnie Lott
