Lavell Quotes

Post by BYULV » Sat Aug 04, 2012 5:23 pm

Thought soe might find these funny/interesting:
Edwards was asked if a Playboy magazine article predicting BYU to finish 7-5 in 1978 had any merit. Edwards' response: "Not too many people read Playboy in Provo."

"I'm a firm believer in hard work to reach the desired goals. But I also believe football should be fun; a sport the players, as well as the fans, should enjoy. It doesn't have to be regimentation or drudgery. The outgrowth of football should be good, positive values that will benefit a players for the remainder of his life."

A Sports Illustrated article described Edwards as a "large, lumpy chap, secretly something ofa poet and a romantic." Edwards called a columnist at the Provo Daily Herald to find out what that meant. She told him, "it means you're a fat daydreamer." The columnist was Pat Edwards, LaVell's wife.

Embarrassing - the company we keep. Playboy polls. Beer commercials on TV. Great TV moments posted recently on BYU TV show a big Marlboro banner in the background as McMahon launched the miracle bowl pass.

Lavell's response was a classic. Not just the line - but the delivery.

Anae just might be the guy. Wisconsin DC says Anae is totally unpredictable because he just runs a bunch of plays with no rhyme or reason. Whooped Butt on Houston DC for 3 of 4 quarters. Destroyed Texas DC and HC careers.
