It was about winning and how fans no longer are satisfied with winning a close/hard fought game -- they want to embarrass the other team. Or something to that effect. Anyone? My Google skills didnt come up with anything.
would not have expanded his explanation to such a degree. Carr really never preached his beliefs he just practiced them.
And many times he played a close hard fought game by accident against a team that should be gotten blown out, but that was often not a virtue but just bad coaching.
but as for his other quotes..."I like 'em all!"
It was actually "I like 'em both" (in response to a question about whether Brady or Henson would start).
::ANGRY STARE:: --Lloyd Carr
You can just ask Coach Hoke if you want. Some people say he is Lloyd Carr.
But then you might be able to ask Ondre Pipkins. Some people think he's really Coach Hoke, who may or may not actually be Lloyd Carr.
using this for vocals. preferably with gangnam style dancing or whatever the next ridiculous trend is.
I'll appreciate a hard fought win over tough teams, but let's be real. If we win a "hard fought" game against UMass by single digits, I won't be too thrilled.
you're a great player - no need to play for that bum Rodriguez... want me to sign those transfer papers for you?"
(Points return at the end of the month.)
No sense of humor...
One must look at one's total body of work before the mega-neg, IMO.
Can I appeal this to the high court?... ;)
I feel for you, but some things (even those meant to be funny) just lead down a path of destruction and devistation. But fear not - your points return on 9/31.
I would've accepted "I am the Laawwwwwww" as a response to my appeal.
is 9/31?! ;>]
I'm drawing a blank here for Lloyd saying that. But most coaches started talking about the never satisfied expectations of fans in the 90's, even when it comes to margin of victory.
I remember a fluff piece ESPN did the year after Danny Wuerffel graduated from Florida stating how sad Gator fans were that they were only winning games by scores of 20-10 or 21-6 instead of 62-7 and 58-6. I was only a teenager but I remember thinking what a load of crap this was to even be considered newsworthy.
Just win, baby.
not the quote you're looking for, but one of the most memorable...
when we were up on OSU by two touchdowns going into halftime, michigan decided to kill clock with two timeouts in their pocket, instead of tacking on more. the sideline reporter asked lloyd why we didn't try to get more on the board given the timeout situation. lloyd responded, "why would you ask a dumb question like that?" and walked away.
It was the 2003 Ohio game. 2004 was the Troy Smith coming out party (shudder).
good call there. (now recalls that game, takes sleeping pill)
Good, hard, physical
"Maybe you should get back to work, son, and stop all that 'Googling' around."
Why would you ask a dumb question like that?
Not sure if Lloyd ever said anything specifically along those lines, but he did say this and for some reason, I recall it:
“Dealing with success is more agreeable than dealing with losing, ... but it's no less difficult. Now we have to deal with all these people patting us on the back. But it's not wise to listen to that because it might distract you from what you need to get done.”
I've always found this to be true, and he did put it well. This, as well as over 200 other Carr-attributed quotes are here: http://www.successories.com/iquote/author/4619/lloyd-carr
“I wouldn't do that to the other school. That's just me. I wouldn't do that.”
It may not be the same quote, but it is possible that the OP combined two quotes together in his/her mind.
have just won the national championship!"
Others have said something very similar, but Lloyd's version is my favorite.
