Pretty much everyone--if not indeed everyone--reported the quote without the word "like." So as was the case with Bill Cosby, it's Garrett's word against dozens.

What I think happened is that Garrett was so angry and worked up when talking with the press after the game that he either meant/tried to say the word "like," but it did not come out audibly for the press to pick up. Hence, it was not reported...

How many reporters do you think were there to cover the 1985 season-opening game between Columbia and Harvard? Let's put it this way. They probably had left over sandwiches after the game.

I'll bet that when you read "pretty much everyone" reporting what Garrett said, it's other people reporting what the New York Times printed he said.
