Brooklyn Nets point guard Jeremy Lin:

“Going to Charlotte was a breath of fresh air. I learned so much from Cliff [Hornets coach Steve Clifford]. … We played the right way, we moved the ball, we played as a team. It was just beautiful. It just brought back everything I thought basketball to be, and I had so much fun with it.”



Alabama head coach following their 52-6 win over USC:

“We need to improve as a team. We need to get more guys that can play winning football and create more depth on our team. More guys to contribute on special teams. We’ve got to build around the very good players that we have, but we’ve got to get more consistent execution I think from a lot of the players so we don’t have negative plays, we don’t have some of the things we had early on on offense.”
