It was Pagac that coined the phrase that year. He was a great coach and nearly got the job over Tress when Coop got let go. His son was from Dublin and was a highly rated recruit though his Buckeye career never panned out due to injury.
Hopefully he has the same impact that Fred Pagac had when he took over the defense in 1996. We went from a pathetic passive defense that gave up a zillion yards to Michigan and Tennessee in 1995 (sound familiar?) to an aggressive blitzing juggernaut in 1996. One of the best OSU defenses of all time. That is when the Silver Bullets were born.
