SchianoSchianoI’ll be back with a column on Schiano’s arrival and what it means for the Bucs, including one player in particular. But, in the meantime, let me throw out a few of Schiano’s best quotes.

  • “There is going to be a Buccaneer way and they’re going to be Buccaneer men.’’

  • “Great defense. Win the special teams battle. Be a physical offensive team that takes shot down the field. That formula works.’’ – on his overall coaching philosophy.

  • “We’ve got to reconnect with the community. We have to earn your trust. I can’t wait to do it.’’

  • “We’re going to try to be the best, starting today.’’

  • “There are 1,440 minutes in a day. What you make of them, that’s going to determine our success.’’

  • “I can’t wait to work with players all day. We get them in a tight window in college.’’
