Coaches Hot Seat Quotes of the Day - Wednesday, October 29, 2014 - Francis Ford Coppola

 

 

“A number of images put together a certain way become something quite above and beyond what any of them are individually.”

And

“Anything you build on a large scale or with intense passion invites chaos.”

And

“Art depends on luck and talent.”

And

“I became quite successful very young, and it was mainly because I was so enthusiastic and I just worked so hard at it.”

And

“It’s ironic that at age 32, at probably the greatest moment of my career, with The Godfather having such an enormous success, I wasn’t even aware of it, because I was somewhere else under the deadline again.”

And

“The stuff that I got in trouble for, the casting for The Godfather or the flag scene in Patton, was the stuff that was remembered, and was considered the good work.”

And

“You ought to love what you’re doing because, especially in a movie, over time you really will start to hate it.”

And

“I think cinema, movies, and magic have always been closely associated. The very earliest people who made film were magicians.”

And

“I believe that filmmaking – as, probably, is everything – is a game you should play with all your cards, and all your dice, and whatever else you’ve got. So, each time I make a movie, I give it everything I have. I think everyone should, and I think everyone should

do everything they do that way.”

And

“I associate my motion picture career more with being unhappy and scared, or being under the gun, than with anything pleasant.”

And

“The essence of cinema is editing. It’s the combination of what can be extraordinary images of people during emotional moments, or images in a general sense, put together

in a kind of alchemy.”

And

On his film, “Apocalypse Now”, at the 1979 Cannes Film Festival: “My movie is not about Vietnam… my movie is Vietnam.”

And

“Anything you build on a large scale or with intense passion invites chaos.”

And

“Lots of people have criticized my movies, but nobody has ever identified the real problem: I’m a sloppy filmmaker.”

And

“The Godfather changed my life, for better or worse. It definitely made me have an older man’s film career when I was 29. So now I say, ‘If I had my older career when I was young, as an older man, maybe I can have a young film-maker’s career.'”

And

“Brando wants to do what you want, but he wants people to be honest and not try to manipulate him.”

Two Things Early in the College Football Week 10 – The Florida Football Head Coaching Job and Bozo the Clown – College Football Playoff First Rankings

 

 

1.  Florida AD Jeremy Foley “doesn’t want to fire Will Muschamp?”

We listen very closely to what members of the media say because often they are talking to decision-makers “off the record” about important issues of the day and we must have heard a half-dozen media members say something on Monday to the effect of…

Jeremy Foley and the people at Florida “really don’t want to fire Will Muschamp.”

What the Hell?

Most everyone here at Coaches Hot Seat had been fired themselves or has had to fire someone during their working lives and it is never a pleasant experience to get fired or to fire someone BUT please can someone explain to us when the hiring or firing of a head football coach at a place like the University of Florida is related to anything beyond…

Coaches Hot Seat Quotes of the Day - Tuesday, October 28, 2014 - Thomas Edison

 

 

“Be courageous. I have seen many depressions in business. Always America has emerged from these stronger and more prosperous. Be brave as your fathers before you. Have faith! Go forward!”

And

And

“Discontent is the first necessity of progress.”

And

“Genius is one percent inspiration and ninety-nine percent perspiration.”

And

“His genius he was quite content in one brief sentence to define; Of inspiration one percent, of perspiration, ninety nine.”

And

“One might think that the money value of an invention constitutes its reward to the man who loves his work. But… I continue to find my greatest pleasure, and so my reward, in the work that precedes what the world calls success.”

And

“I never did a day’s work in my life. It was all fun.”

And

“I never did anything by accident, nor did any of my inventions come by accident; they came by work.”

And

“It is astonishing what an effort it seems to be for many people to put their brains definitely and systematically to work.”

when they gave up.”

And

“Nearly every man who develops an idea works it up to the point where it looks impossible, and then he gets discouraged. That’s not the place to become discouraged.”

And

“The reason a lot of people do not recognize opportunity is because it usually goes

around wearing overalls looking like hard work.”

And

And

“What you are will show in what you do.”

And

“Your worth consists in what you are and not in what you have.”

And

And

Post Week 9 Coaches Hot Seat Rankings – It’s Halloween Week Johnny Cash So Scare the Hell Out of These Hot Seat Coaches!

 

 

1.  Will Muschamp, Florida – The most amazing thing about the 2014 season for Will Muschamp and the Florida Gators is that the Gators are only…

A 3-overtime win over Kentucky

A 1-point win over Tennessee

…from being at 1 – 5 right now instead of 3 – 3 which says more about the current state of the Florida football program than almost anything we could possibly write.

With the Georgia Bulldogs in the World’s Largest Cocktail Party this week for the Gators this will be Muschamp’s….

45 th Football Game

….as the head football coach at Florida with win/loss records of…

Overall: 25 – 19 (.568)

SEC: 15 – 14 (.517)

…on the board and as bad as the above win/loss records are a very good question to ask:

Is the Florida football program/team better today than it was when Will Muschamp was hired before the 2011 season?

Coaches Hot Seat Quotes of the Day - Saturday, October 25, 2014 - General Robert Neyland

 

 

General Neyland’s 7 Maxims

1. The team that makes the fewest mistakes will win.

2. Play for and make the breaks and when one comes your way – SCORE.

3. If at first the game – or the breaks – go against you, don’t let up… put on more steam.

4. Protect our kickers, our QB, our lead and our ball game.

5. Ball, oskie, cover, block, cut and slice, pursue and gang tackle… for this is the WINNING EDGE.

6. Press the kicking game. Here is where the breaks are made.

7. Carry the fight to our opponent and keep it there for 60 minutes.”

And

“The team that makes the fewest mistakes wins”

And

“To defeat a weak opponent is not the problem: The problem is to win when he is as good or better than you”

And

“Gentlemen, touchdowns follow blocking as sure night follows day”

And

“If my teams win, my press will be good. If we lose, the press can’t help me anyhow.”

And

“People think I’m the greatest damn coach in the world,” said the great Bear Bryant, “but Neyland taught me everything I know.”

1. What about this headline from Big 12 Country?

Oklahoma State sues Texas’ Joe Wickline, Max Olson, ESPN

“Oklahoma State has sued Texas co-offensive coordinator Joe Wickline for breach of contract, alleging he misled his former employer about his new position at Texas, and the school is seeking more than $593,000 in damages.

According to the suit filed in an Oklahoma district court Oct. 17, Oklahoma State’s board of regents asserts that Wickline violated his contractual agreement to pay a buyout fee of $593,487 if he left OSU for a Football Bowl Subdivision offensive coordinator job that did not include play-calling duties.”

Mike Holder is the former legendary golf coach and current athletic direction at Oklahoma State and we here at Coaches Hot Seat have only ONE question for Mike Holder:
