Happy birthday Coach Hayes! We miss you!
Learned to hate him in the 80's
Hated him as an NFL player
Hated him as a coach
Looking forward to hating him even more
Habu - I fully concur. He is not trustworthy. I ran into him after he pissed me off...'hello John' ...'call me BuckeyeGuy'....'go to hell John'
Nice read. I graduated in 86, left for LA in 89, thinking it was home. Realized that home had become Central Ohio and came back in 93. 21 years back, marriage, two kids, divorce and nearly every home game in the 'Shoe. Would not change a thing. Glad to live here, and someday - hopefully a long time from now - I will be glad to die here. My son and I will be in the 'Shoe tomorrow. Homecoming.
I was a soccer player, and a crappy one to boot. Dislocated my kneecap around to the back of my leg at 33 years old. Took 9 months of heavy duty rehab to play again,and my quad muscle was never the same. Of course, I am NOT a natural athlete and Josh Sweat is.
