A lot of people are doubting us right now, ... But the reality is that we've lost two conference games on the last play of the game. . . . We have a lot of freshmen and sophomores running around out there, and they're good players. You look at us on paper, and I think we have the chance to develop into a very good football team this year and into next.
I also played two years of high school football but I wasn't very, how shall I say it, talented.
I did play two years of high school football and was very short and uncoordinated but the second year I was very tall and skinny and very uncoordinated.
I played soccer growing up, and then high school came along and the football coach came out one day and was like, 'Hey, do you want to kick for us?' I was like, 'Sure, I'll come out and kick one day.' I got moved up to varsity and that's how the story began.
Alex Smith, what he's done over the last two years for this football team, this is a mistake in not starting him. He needs to be the guy and it's going to be tough if (Colin) Kaepernick doesn't play well today and now you're coming back saying, "Alex, we're going to put you back in there.'
I just always felt I'd be playing football in the NFL - or at least playing for a living.
I'm concerned that if one of those two areas doesn't play up to par " if they give up some points or they can't run the football " and it gets stuck on Russell Wilson's shoulders"if he has to stay in the pocket against good defenses, read coverages, make the right plays, see the field, that's where I worry.
LeSean McCoy has become the most exciting player in the National Football League. I believe he's the MVP this year.
On the football field I keep my emotions tied up inside. But when I'm with family, I let them out.
It's a group of guys that put their mind to going out and playing great football. Everybody that needed to step up, stepped up. Everybody that needed to make a play, made a play, and that's what it's all about.
No matter what happens on the football field it doesn't change the kind of person I am.
I think Marshawn Lynch is the most important player in this football game.
I liken actors and movies and TV shows to football teams. We all have our favorite ones.
The closest Ive come to knowing myself is in losing myself. Thats why I loved football before I loved music. I could lose myself in it.
I like watching sports. I like going to sports games and that's kind of my life during football season for sure.
The essence of football was blocking, tackling, and execution based on timing, rhythm and deception.
The morning we left South Bend, every student and professor was out of bed long before breakfast and marched downtown accompanying the team to the railroad station. It was the first time I'd seen anything like this mass hysteria generated on the Notre Dame campus over a football game.
Football is a game played with arms, legs and shoulders but mostly from the neck up.
The best thing I ever learned in life was that things have to be worked for. A lot of people seem to think there is some sort of magic in making a winning football team. There isn't, but there's plenty of work.
Four years of football are calculated to breed in the average man more of the ingredients of success in life than almost any academic course he takes.
I enjoy talking to my football men and my chemistry classes and I feel sure that they are quite interested in what I have to say.
Generalities don't count and won't help you in football.
No star playing, just football.
I don't like to lose, and that isn't so much because it is just a football game, but because defeat means the failure to reach your objective.
My drug of choice is beer. It's not only socially accepted, you can't even watch a football game without having it shoved in your face a thousand times.
Every girl who has dated a football player ... They all have sex the same way.
It's easier to date a football player for sure. Football players have one game a week, and they practice every day, but they're all at home. In basketball, they're on the road all the time.
Back in Kansas City, I associated Harvard with sort of gnarly guys who wore capes for effect in a kind of Oscar Wilde scene. Even though I also knew there was such a thing as the Harvard-Yale game, I was still a little surprised that Harvard had a football team. I just assumed if there were such a thing as gay people, that they were nothing like us. Little did I know that probably half the swim team at Yale was gay.
The best art on a football field usually happens during kickoff returns.
Any time you do an Adam Sandler film, it's kind of like a boys' club, because you're hanging out and there are guitars around, and basketballs and footballs and electric bikes and scooters and different people dropping by.
In the late-'80s, there was a big push to make American football big in Scotland. The Super Bowl was on TV, but it didn't really catch on. When I was a kid, though, I became a big Miami Dolphins fan. I don't really know why - I just liked the logo, I guess. I didn't really know what was going on.
Football is the priority, even more than school. Art is frowned upon. I had to sneak music in.
I get paid to play football, not to sit on the bench, I don't enjoy that. Over the years loads of players have been very happy to do that and pick up their money. That used to really wind me up.
The press keep asking me but I will stop when I stop scoring. The problem is football is very ageist. When you reach 30, they keep talking about your age.
Every club if I am not playing, I leave because I want to play football. All I wanted to do since I was a kid is play football and if I wasn't at a club I'd be playing with my mates on a Sunday. I still come home and play five-a-side with my mates.
This is the culmination of a lot of people's vision. I think this is just another step towards making Central Michigan football among the elite programs in the Mid-American Conference.
I'm not a person who goes into a deep depression after a defeat. I try to remain reasonably upbeat. I'm realistic enough to know that results of football matches are often unpredictable and, when all is said and done, things don't always work out as one would wish!
English football is in a bad way because the foreign players here are so good, so dominant.
Football's always easier when you've got the ball.
England can end the millenium as it started - as the greatest football nation in the world.
