(MARK EMMERTON CHANGING NCAA RULES):
Before this next academicyear is over, we’re going to have a major re-write of our rulebook,throwing away a lot of the rules that are just plain silly, unenforceable,don’t have anything to do with the integrity of the game and insteadfocusing on those things that really count. I always say, ‘the things ourmama’s taught us.’ You don’t lie, you don’t cheat, youdon’t take money, you don’t cheat on your school work. The thingsthat are really fundamental to what sports is about. And then putting in placeon top of that, an investigation, an adjudication and a penalty structure thatputs real teeth into holding accountable the people that are really engaged inthese things.
(EMMERTON NCAA’S MODEL):
I think the collegiate model is an extraordinary one. We’re theonly nation on earth that has combined athletics with higher education in theway that we do. It’s something that’s uniquely American and I thinkit’s a great American tradition. If we move to a place sometime in the future,after I’m gone because it wouldn’t happen on my watch, if we moveto a place where we convert our student athletes, who are students who happento be athletes, into professionals, well then we’ve completely thrownaway that model. Then we’ve moved to a place where we’ve completelysaid, ‘No, this is just a business, this is just a commercialactivity.’ And think of the consequences of that. If you were a presidentof a University you’d immediately move to a place where we only careabout the sports that generate revenue. So get rid of everything else: golf,tennis, swimming, track, field, volleyball, women’s basketball.

(BILLSNYDER ON HIS RETURN TO COACHING):
It was a hard decision. It was a very,very difficult decision. When I retired, you know it takes a little time to getadjusted to it but I had so many things that I was able to get involved withthat were really significant to me, my life and certainly to the state of Kansas. So when I wasasked to come back, it really was a very, very difficult decision. It took along time. It probably took a couple of months and a lot of dialog with my sonSean and all of our family. And just the thought process that went into it waskind of complex, but nevertheless, here we are.

(BRADY HOKE ON HISCOACHING PHILOSOPHY):
I’m a D-Line coach. When my wifeintroduces me to this day, she says, ‘he’s a defensive line coachat Michigan.’And that’s probably right. For me, being close to those kids, workingwith them on a daily basis, you love the coaching and the fundamentals and thetechniques. That’s what you love to do. And so Mike Martin and myself,Will Campbell and Quinton Washington, we get into that office and watch thepractice tape together, grade the practice tape, put-ins the whole thing. Itreally is probably selfish, but it keeps me where I need to be.

(ALGOLDEN ON VIOLATIONS AT MIAMI):
There’s no questionwe’re happy. We’re in one of the greatest hotbeds there is forcollege football. We have an incredible tradition at Miami, we’ve played for more nationalchampionships in the last 30 years than anybody. We have more players in theNFL, we had the most players in the pro-bowl, we had the most first-rounders.So there’s so many great things in addition to being a top-40 institution.But for me to say I wasn’t blindsided would be crazy. It was me and ourstaff and I’m sitting there with my wife, and this is being played out.What you guys saw on video was real. You talk about reality TV, we were goingthrough it. Again, I’m really proud of our kids for just saying focusedand being competitive and fighting through the adversity, most particularly ondefense.
