Some college football bon mots: Caught this on the wire, but the article containing them by The Denver Post's John Henderson should make an appearance on the Web soon.
The quotes, both courtesy of Blake Elliott of St. John's (Minn.):
Best In-Your-Face-Trash-Talk comeback: Blake Elliott, St. John's (Minn.) wide receiver. After catching a pass and being told by a defensive back, "That's the last catch you're getting today, 2," Elliott shot back, "Considering it's 48-0 and I'm coming out of the game, you're probably right."
Best quote: Blake Elliott, St. John's receiver. After beating Bethel for Gagliardi's NCAA-record 409th victory, he was asked if the team had discussed the goal much this year. Said Elliott, "We didn't talk about 409 unless it was about cleaning supplies."
