QUOTES OF THE DAY
"I've got all them honey-dos. I've got to aerate the yard and throw out some grass seed. But believe you me, I'm going to throw me something on the grill and watch me a little bit (of football) and laugh at everybody else having all the pressure on them that day."
-- Football coach Robbie Caldwell on what he plans to do with no game on Saturday (Source: ESPN.com)
"We've just always done it. Everybody on the team loves that movie; it's a great movie. It's just kind of been our trademark after a big win. We come in and do the Rufio chant."
-- Senior center Joey Bailey on the Commodores' homage to the movie Hook (Source: The City Paper)
