Mike Norvell Quote on Sports Writers
According to the Internet Mike's favorite quote: "The job of a sports columnist is to observe the battle from the mountain top and then ride down and bayonet the wounded."Dec 7, 2019

Not sure I ever saw this before but thought it was funny enough to post it.

I have always thought the local columnists/media have been pretty easy on MN. He will see much more pressure now from the Florida media. Of course there hasn't been much to complain about during his Tiger tenure.

NTR...

Did anyone actually HEAR Norvell say this, or were the mics somehow muted?

Here's Mike Bianchi, a sports reporter, saying that quote in 2013:

I think the quote was supposedly Norvell's favorite. To me that meant that he heard it from someone else and liked it.

I've heard that quote but in relation to the big 4 accounting/audit firms.

And as it relates to auditors. It is spot on. Except they don't ride down the mountain. They pedal down on their tricycles.

He said it you just couldn't hear the question.

This is it. I had a coffee mug 20 years ago that said this about auditors.
