Some Coach Groves Quotes to End the Year

  1. "If you're better than the Big Ten, then you're a professional,"
  2.   "The competition is so awesome, you'll crap in your pants."
  3.   "There are no gifts in the Big Ten. You have to earn every point and every place."
  4.  Another time a bunch of us went out to eat after a track clinic in Philadelphia. The Italian restaurant was packed and the maitre d' told us it would be at least a 2 hour wait. Someone pointed to Groves and said, "But that's the senior senator from Virginia." Within 10 minutes we had a table in the back room. I still call Harry "Senator" when I see him.
  5.  " could run you until you dropped but had trouble spelling cat even if you spotted him the "c" and the "a" "
  6.   "Victory does not come from the second wave." 
  7.   "I've been busier than a one-legged man in an ass-kicking contest"
  8.  "I'd rather have Mike Sands than some g** d*mned American record."
  9.  "No matter how talented they are, no matter how mature they seem, sooner or later they prove they are just kids."
  10.  "I hate big kickers because they often get beat by other big kickers" 
And don't forget to get your 5 votes in on the left sidebar for the Finalists in the Performance of the Year!


  1. #10 should read "The problem with big kickers is that they get beat by other big kickers"

  2. For the fourth year in a row at the golf outing (not to mention dating back to the 1994 NCAA X-C Championships and even previous to then) Harry greeted me with "You still look better with clothes on?"
