|Quotable Quotes, Part III
|"If you weren't ready to practice, George would throw your ass off the football
field. There were times where he would throw the coaches off the field, too,
because he didn't feel they were ready." -- Shawn Moore
|"The brainchild of Sports Promotion Director Todd Turner, who described it
as 'an entertainment device,' the Hoo...debuted at Virginia's home opener
against Duke on Sept. 3 and promptly (1) was showered with ice cubes from
detractors in the stands and (2) suffered the forced removal of its tongue by
pie-eyed fraternity boys. Because of fear of further violence, the Hoo (with a
student inside) appeared only briefly on the sidelines during the Navy game
on Sept. 10." -- Sports Illustrated, describing UVA's ill-fated (and short-lived)
|"One thing I could never understand about Steve Spurrier, and you can quote
me, we scored touchdowns on seven straight possessions in that game.
And...it could've been worse. And then he said, Well, we should have been
champions, because we beat the kings. They beat Clemson, and we didn't.
I'll tell you what. I might have been able to score 70 that night if I wanted to." --
George Welsh, responding to Steve Spurrier's claim that Duke, not UVA,
should have received the ACC's berth in the 1989 Citrus Bowl

|"[Coach Welsh] would throw anybody out of practice, including Tiki Barber,
anybody. Once, he threw both teams and the coaching staff off the field and
make them stand on the sidelines." -- former Welsh assistant Danny Wilmer
