Who said it: Josh Pastner or Michael Scott? The definitive quiz

If you've read the site for any period of time, you probably know how I feel about Josh Pastner, the Memphis State turned Georgia Tech head coach who has a tendency to say things that sound an awful lot like something Michael Scott from "The Office" might say.

With Louisville set to take on Pastner's Yellow Jackets Thursday night, what better time to bust out the definitive "Did Josh Pastner or Michael Scott say this" quiz.

The answers are in the comment section.

1. "It was quick. It happened within hours. There was no time to dilly-dally around. It was A to B to C to D to E within hours."

3. "No, I never visited the campus. But I've got good instincts on stuff, and this one felt totally right."

4. "Go fly a kite and take a hike."

5. "We were very undisciplined, and I don't like that because I like discipline."

15. "I have never out-coached anyone. Ever. I have probably been out-coached, though."
