No Jay Leno but...
Big Ten coaches try their best to
liven up their acts with bits of humor

by Mike Gill'
Daily Football Writer
What's in a joke?
Well, Big Ten football coaches
often used jokes as springboards{
for assessing their teams. Some
coaches slotted the jokes neatly
into their assessments, but others
seemed to be fishing for anything
to lighten the mood. Michigan
coach Gary Moeller tends to stick
to business - no bundle of laughs
here.
When coaches addressed the
media in July at the Chicago
Mariott, they polished their
stand-up routines.
Here is some of the best of the
worst.
*Ohio State's John Cooper told
about the morning he got up early
to go golfing and stopped in at a
little dive for breakfast. After
insisting this was a true story,
Cooper delved into the details.
Reading the morning paper over
his breakfast, he spotted an
article which said that the
university president was
searching for a new house. The
article said that the expense
would fall to the taxpayers. As he
sat at the table drinking his
coffee, another man sat down
next to him. Cooper asked him if
he saw the article about the
president's house. The man,

replied yes, and then said
(obviously not knowing who he
was sitting next to), "Hell, wait
till football sep-son's over and he
can have the football coach's
house."
*Minnesota's John Gutekunst
on passing the ball more since All-
Big Ten running back Darrell
Thompson has moved to the
NFL: "I may be going more to the
drug store more than the air
without Darrell Thompson."
"Gutekunst, on what to call
the Big Ten conference now that
Penn State has been admitted:
"Why don't we call it the Big
Mistake?"
"Gutekunst (again) on his
team not having a lot of stars:
"We're going to hire Ed
McMahon and have a Star
Search."
*Michigan State coach George
Perles on his troublesome off-
season when he fought for the job
of athletic director and leaned
toward a job with the New York
Jets. "I used to think the off-
season was great and the only bad
part of this job was 11 Saturdays.
Now I know it's the off-season
when you really get beat up."
*Perles also had the most
memorable quote of the luncheon.
After explaining how he sets
goals, and how this is America
where you are free to choose
whatever job you like, Perles
remembered something he had
once told his wife (supposedly
about setting goals and reaching
high): "I said to my wife a long
time ago, 'Hang on honey, we're
going to go for the moon."'
*Illinois coach John Mackovic
responding to the laughs Perles
received: "George, you didn't say
anything inappropriate. It's their'
minds."
"Mackovic also had some good
off-color humor. Somehow,
Mackovic related the following
incident to how you can't build

up your team too much to the
press nor talk it down too much.
He told of a man who went
golfing and told his wife he soon
would be home. But after
shooting 18 holes, he and his
buddies stopped for a few beers. A
few too many later, a young girl
seduced him and he went home
with her. Afterward, he felt very
guilty about what had transpired.
When he arrived home, four
hours later than expected, he
decided to tell his wife the truth.
"You no-good lying snake -
you played 36 holes, didn't you,"
the women asked.
"Sometimes when you tell the
truth, it just doesn't come out
right," was Mackovic's moral to
the story. Corollary of the fable?
Coaches never are honest when
talking about their teams.
*Mackovic on Jeff George
leaving Illinois a year early to
turn pro, and eventually signing a
$15 million contract with the
Indianapolis Colts: "Someone
asked me if I thought he made the
right choice and before I had a
chance to answer, someone
turned and said, 'Hell, for $15
million, I'd leave grade school."'
*Purdue coach Fred Akers,
where George once played, on his
contract. "John (Mackovic) did a
great job with Jeff, but if he'd had
stayed at Purdue, he'd make some
real money."
