regarding Michigan : "You ask, What is our policy (on Sat.)? I will say; it is to wage war, by sea, land and air, with all our might and with all the strength god can give us: to wage war against a monstrous tyranny, never surpassed in the dark lamentable catalogue of human crime". (see also : Manningham, Mario)
regarding the season : "You ask, What is our aim? I can answer with one word : Victory - victory at all costs, victory in spite of all terror, victory however long and hard the road may be; for without victory there is no survival. We shall not (get pointless)flag(s) or fail (to convert on third and short). We shall go on to Miami. We shall fight in the Beav. We shall fight in the 'Shoe and in Kinnick. We shall throw with growing confidence and growing strength in the air. We shall defend our quarterback, whatever the cost may be. We shall fight in the trenches, we shall fight in the backfield, we shall fight in the middle and in the flat, we shall fight on the goaline. We shall never surrender....."
"Let us therefore brace ourselves to our duties, and so bear ourselves that, if the Penn State Nittany Lions and its constituent fanbase last for a thousand years, men will still say : "This was their finest hour".
