#Quote
1I was willing to settle for a scoreless tie in the third quarter. I felt at the start of the second half we had a good chance. But after we couldn't get going, even with our tremendous punting to their goal, I was ready to settle for a scoreless tie. [commenting on Oklahoma's 7-0 loss to Notre Dame on November 16, 1957]
2You played a good game and I am proud of all of you. We couldn't go on winning forever. [addressing his team after losing to Notre Dame on November 16, 1957, ending Oklahoma's record 47-game winning streak]
