Favorite Movie Quotes: Glory Road

Today's Favorite Movie Quote is from the Movie, "Glory Road (2006)" starring John Lucus as Don Haskins...if you haven't seen this movie it is based on a true story based about Texas Western's Head Basketball Coach Don Haskins when he went on a pursuit to find the best basketball talent in the land... no matter if they were white or black and found 12 players, 7 blacks and 5 whites... which led to the first all-black starting lineup to the win the 1966 NCAA National Men's Basketball Championship.

Here are some of my favorite quotes from Glory Road...

Willie 'Scoops' Cager: They're trying to take our dignity away from us.
Coach Don Haskins: Your dignity's inside you. Nobody can take something away from you you don't give them.

Coach Don Haskins: [while recruiting Orsten Artis] Brother, without a little work I don't think you can get past an old timer like me
Orsten Artis: Get past you... I will go past you, through you, over you, under you, around you. As a matter of fact I will spin you like a top, twist you in a pretzel, eat your lunch, steal your girl and kick your dog at the same time... pshh get past you.

Play for you at Texas Western? Thanks Coach - but I'm partial to winning!
