Favorite Sayings...

by your former highschool or college coaches. I was bored and the board was slow today, so I wanted to spice it up a little. I always found it funny how coaches have these funny sayings that stick with you. Please share if you remember some that you found funny. I'll start.

This is from my former high school football coach.

"Don't be like crawdads in a bucket" referring to not hustling, because if you don't hustle your going to have a negative effect on th players around you. If you have never seen crawdad's in a bucket, the ones n the bottom pinch and pull at the ones on top as they try to climb out and pull them back down.

"You couldn't catch your butt with a bass fiddle." referring to one of our recievers who had a really bad first half dropping 3 or 4 passes right in his hands.

Didn't play sports. But my auto mechanics teacher always said "there is no t in American-it ends with CAN". Meaning there was nothing we couldn't do if we wanted to.

Team with most rebounds will win.

It's not the size of the dog in the fight, it's the size of the fight in the dog. Hmmmmm, Michael Vick must've had him for a coach too.

Did your coach smoke much pot? I need to see video of somebody catching their butt with a bass fiddle.
