"Pat Hill's stache always looks more melancholy versus Boise." -- @osuphil95

"Today's game at Legion Field. With games at Davis Wade and Liberty Bowl, average age of stadiums played in this year is 223. " -- Joe Galbraith

"I hope Ralph Friedgen is at this Ga Tech-Maryland game dressed as Henry VIII." -- @celebrityhottub

"We were down five, right? Up five, I mean ... It was 20-13? Up seven?'' -- Ron Zook, via SB Nation

"It's always nice to sneak up on people." -- Jim Grobe

"We're water and bamboo. That's about all I can say. Bamboo sits there and you water it, and you water it, and you water it. It sits there and it doesn't grow and it doesn't grow and you water it and you keep watering it and nothing's happening. If you don't understand bamboo, you say it's never going to grow. And then you come out and it goes ZHOOM! That's what's going to happen. I don't know when that is." -- Derek Dooley, via the Knoxville News-Sentinel
