    "In order to excel, you must be completely dedicated to your chosen sport.  You must also be prepared to work hard and be willing to accept constructive

       criticism.  Without one-hundred percent dedication, you won’t be able to do this.”  Willie Mays

 

 

Coaches Hot Seat Quotes of the Day - Friday, July 25, 2014 - Willie Mays

 

 

“Baseball is a game, yes. It is also a business. But what is most truly is is disguised combat. For all its gentility, its almost leisurely pace, baseball is violence under wraps.”

And

And

“They throw the ball, I hit it. They hit the ball, I catch it.”

And

“Every time I look at my pocketbook, I see Jackie Robinson.”

And

“It’s not hard. When I’m not hitting, I don’t hit nobody. But when I’m hitting, I hit anybody.”

And

“At ten I was playing against 18-year-old guys. At 15 I was playing professional ball with the Birmingham Black Barons, so I really came very quickly in all sports.”

And

“In 1950, when the Giants signed me, they gave me $15,000. I bought a 1950 Mercury. I couldn’t drive, but I had it in the parking lot there, and everybody that could drive

would drive the car. So it was like a community thing.”

And

Today we mark the passing of the Great James Garner who to all of us here at Coaches

Hot Seat was “Jim Rockford” the wily if sometimes cowardly detective on The Rockford Files hit TV series that aired on NBC between 1974 and 1980.

Coaches Hot Seat Quotes of the Day - Tuesday, July 15, 2014 - General Robert Neyland

 

 

“General Neyland’s 7 Maxims

1. The team that makes the fewest mistakes will win.

2. Play for and make the breaks and when one comes your way – SCORE.

3. If at first the game – or the breaks – go against you, don’t let up… put on more steam.

4. Protect our kickers, our QB, our lead and our ball game.

5. Ball, oskie, cover, block, cut and slice, pursue and gang tackle… for this is the WINNING EDGE.

6. Press the kicking game. Here is where the breaks are made.

7. Carry the fight to our opponent and keep it there for 60 minutes.”

And

“You never know what a football player is made of until he plays Alabama”

And

“The team that makes the fewest mistakes wins”

And

“To defeat a weak opponent is not the problem: The problem is to win when he is as good or better than you”

And

“If my teams win, my press will be good. If we lose, the press can’t help me anyhow.”

And

“People think I’m the greatest damn coach in the world,” said the great Bear Bryant, “but Neyland taught me everything I know.”
