seasons

A Quote by Alfred, Lord TENNYSON on freedom and seasons

And statesmen at her council met Who knew the seasons, when to take Occasion by the hand, and make The bounds of freedom wider yet.

Lord Alfred Tennyson (1809 - 1892)

A Quote by LaVell Edwards on chance, good, play, retirement, and seasons

BYU takes on defending national champion Florida State in the Pigskin Classic in Jacksonville, Fla., eight days after announcing that the 2000 season would be his last before retirement: We looked at it. We knew it would make things tougher. But how many chances does anyone get to play Florida State? It was too good to pass up.

A Quote by LaVell Edwards on difficulty, experience, history, justice, people, seasons, and victory

After the Cougars' 19-15 Cotton Bowl victory over Kansas State We're the only team in NCAA history to win 14 games in a season. It was just a great experience and I can't say enough about it. . . . People don't know how difficult it is to get up for 15 games.

A Quote by LaVell Edwards on belief, dreams, farewells, play, retirement, seasons, and time

Speaking as he unintentionally launched his farewell tour by announcing that the 2000 season would be his last before retirement: Honestly, I had never, ever in my wildest dreams believed I would ever do this. All I wanted to do was to play it out and when it was time to go, hang it up, take off and sail into the sunset somewhere.

A Quote by LaVell Edwards on careers, chance, coaching, college, day, football, goals, justice, men, mistakes, opportunity, play, problems, seasons, starting, thinking, and thought

Steve Young is one of the most gifted young men that I have ever known. He is fast, strong, big, handsome, ... and rich. It is easy for us to look at Steve and say, "With all those attributes, you ought to be great." However, it is more than his physical attributes that have made him great; it is the way he thinks! When Steve was a junior and was starting his first season as our quarterback, we had one of the greatest opportunities presented to us in our football program at BYU. We were scheduled to play Herschel Walker and the University of Georgia, the defending national champions. We worked very hard and felt we had a chance to beat them if we played our very best and did not make mistakes. Before 82,000 fans, and on a "rainy day in Georgia," Steve threw five interceptions in the first half of the game-more than he would normally throw in five games! In spite of the interceptions and two missed field goal attempts, we were still tied 7-7 at halftime. Going into the dressing room, I thought to myself that I must talk to Steve and assure him that everything would be fine. The rain, the crowd, the tipped balls, etc.-I had all the excuses ready for throwing five interceptions in one half. I started explaining this to Steve and before I could finish, Steve stopped me, looked at me as if I was crazy, and said, "Hey coach, there's no problem. I can hardly wait to get back out there. We're going to win." I found myself thinking, "What do you mean there's no problem, you dummy. You have just thrown five interceptions!" It's the way he thinks. That's what has made him what he is and enabled him to accomplish what he has done. As you know, this was just the start of a career that would see him become one of the finest quarterbacks to play the game of college football.

A Quote by LaVell Edwards on facts, feeling, retirement, seasons, serenity, time, and wives

BYU takes on defending national champion Florida State in the Pigskin Classic in Jacksonville, Fla., eight days after announcing that the 2000 season would be his last before retirement: I do know this, that I'm finally a little bit more relieved than I've been for some time. Patti (his wife) and I have talked about it a lot and came to that conclusion (to retire). I had a feeling of serenity, if you will. In fact, I was feeling so serene that I put in a film of Florida State, and that got me out of that mood in a hurry.

A Quote by LaVell Edwards on retirement, seasons, and thinking

BYU takes on defending national champion Florida State in the Pigskin Classic in Jacksonville, Fla., eight days after announcing that the 2000 season would be his last before retirement: It's exciting. Thinking back to when I first came here, to when we were playing games where the Richards P.E. Building is, with the likes of Western Michigan - who beat us - and other teams like that. Now after all these years we're playing teams like Florida State.

A Quote by LaVell Edwards on day, happiness, history, kindness, people, seasons, talent, time, and winning

Looking at the championship-winning quarterbacks, Edwards remembered their particular talents: Robbie Bosco: One of my all time favorite people. He never changed from the day he came here to the day he left. He's a very happy guy, laid back, casual, kind of self-effacing. Yet look at that Michigan game. That was one of the guttiest performances in the history of anything. All those games during the championship season when we had to come from behind to win. He could reach back and kind whatever he needed to win. He could run, he could throw, the other players wanted to come through for him. He did it all.

A Quote by LaVell Edwards on good, retirement, seasons, and time

Considering retirement? When that happens, I don't want that to be the story of whatever the season it is. I don't want to have to be talking about it all the time. My plan is when the time is up, it'll be time to hang it up. When that comes, it'll come. But right now, I don't have any clue as to when that'll be. It's been that way the last couple of years. . . . I've often felt if I ever get to a point where I don't want to go recruiting and can't get excited about it, then maybe it's time. That's a pretty good indication that's probably it. And I haven't reached that point at all yet.

A Quote by LaVell Edwards on anxiety, chance, football, good, health, problems, and seasons

How is your health? I feel pretty good, and I'm very anxious to get the season going. I think we have a chance to have a good football team. I don't have any health problems. I don't know how any of the stuff gets started. . . . My health is very good.
