    -- Clemson recruit Ray Forsythe, who was ineligible as a freshman
      because of academic requirements

   to get in. I have to drop bread crumbs to get our players to and
   from class"

   for three years, not Princeton."

   see the game anymore." -- Yogi Berra
  "I'm going to graduate on time, no matter how long it takes."
