You've got to love college football. It is the second week of the season and already you have a huge game between Alabama and Penn. State. There are few big game coaches as successful as Joe Paterno. He is as formidable and impressive a coach as there is or has been in college football.

Here are five of his all-time great motivational quotes from my website:

1. "You have to perform at a consistently higher level than others. That's the mark of a true professional."

2. "Success without honor is an unseasoned dish; it will satisfy your hunger, but it won't taste good."

3. "The will to win is important, but the will to prepare is vital."

4. "Publicity is like a poison. It doesn't hurt unless you swallow it."

5. "It's the name on the front of the jersey that matters most, not the one on the back."
