[addressing players] Let me put it to you as clean as I can. We have 95 players here so accomplished as athletes in high school, we gave them scholarships to the finest football program in the land. NCAA regulations allow us to dress just 60 for home games. That means 35 scholarship players will be watching the games from the stands. Now, if any of you has any dreams of one day running out of that tunnel with your gold helmet shining in the sun, you'd best leave them right here. Of you 15 dreamers out there, maybe we'll keep one or two. My job is to basically beat the shit out of you for the next five days. Our first teams are gonna pound on you like you're their worst enemies. Your greatest value to us is that we don't care if you get hurt. Like what you hear so far? Anybody want to run home to Mama? Joe, they're all yours.

He's so little!

Who cares how much effort I put in, if it doesn't produce any results?

We've had a hell of a goddamn run haven't we?

Rudy Quotes

You're five foot nothin. A hundred and nothin. And you have barely a speck of athletic ability. And you hung in there with the best college football players in the land for two years. You're gonna walk outta here with a degree from the University of Notre Dame. In this life, you don't have to prove nothin' to nobody but yourself. Am I making myself clear?

Fortune

No one, and I mean no one, comes into our house and pushes us around.
