Only one bone to pick on the article. Woody always claimed that the reason for the mid 60's drought of success was the Jack Fullen controversy. These two alpha dogs of the University didn't like each other, and when Fullen started agitating that the football tail was wagging the university dog he started to gain traction within the faculty. The Big 10 contract with the Rose Bowl had expired in 1960 and so for the next two seasons the Big Ten was not obligated to send their champion. In 1961, Ohio State won the Big ten. The Rose Bowl still extended an invite to Ohio State. But because of the lack of a contract, Ohio State was not obligated to go; it required approval of the Faculty Senate. That was Fullen's opening to get even with Woody. He was able to lobby the senate to turn down the invite and that is exactly what happened. Other schools in the Big Ten started poaching players Woody wanted and his teams slipped in talent. That was part of why he was forced to cast a wider recruiting net. After Purdue beat Ohio State 42-7, airplanes towing banners like Goodbye Woody. And Fans singing "Oh come and sing Ohio's praise, and say goodbye to Woody Hayes." were common. Woody even told his assistants to prepare their resumes because he expected to be fired. But they won their last three games of the season including the weasels. And the freshmen were already building a reputation because they beat the varsity in practice so often. So Woody was given a reprieve and the rest is history.
"And THAT's the REST of the Story!"
