  3. Just out of curiousity, why are we blatantly stealing from another site? I know it is a free site, but it is still their stuff, right?

    Reading these quotes/stories makes me sad to have never lived through his era.

    Those "good 'ol days" seem so distant as well. The game has gotten too big for people to recognize the kid's in equation. Woody saw the college kid's for who they were and took care of them in ways I can only imagine. He was a great man.

    Kuhn eating glass, while a punter/recruit is in a bar on a campus visit? Just won't happen anymore...:(


    These quotes are great.

    Great "Woody Story" On Bucknuts Today

    Quote of the day for July 9, 2008:

    "Everyone knows that Woody was famous for his practice eruptions. My first year when I was a sophomore -- remember that freshmen could not play back then -- on a Thursday afternoon, we were practicing for The Game. Michigan. We were practicing punt returns. Back then it was standard to employ two return men, and I was one of them. The other was Matt Snell. Now, it was a whale of a windy day. Matt went to field this punt, and it was blowing so hard, there was no way he could catch it. He dropped the punt. "Woody came running down the field, and he referred to us as 'jackasses.' This was Michigan week, so everything had to be right. So we lined up and did it again. Matt said, 'You take this one.' So I dropped it, too. Woody was beside himself. This was the week before my 19th birthday, and Woody came running down the field, ripped off his hat, and started jumping up and down on it. Then he ripped it apart at the seams. I was thinking, 'Wow, how could he be that angry to rip that hat apart at the seams like that?'
    "Now fast-forward to 20 years after that day. A friend of mine who worked for an NFL team would go to Ohio State to scout players. He always spent time with Woody. One day, they were talking for about an hour and Woody got up and said he had to get ready for practice. He reached in his desk and there were about a dozen of those black hats with the Block "O." He grabbed one and grabbed a razor blade and started to slit the seams. He wanted it to be ready in case he needed it to prove a point. It took 20 years, but I found out how he ripped that hat apart so easily."
    Paul Warfield, from the book "What It Means to Be a Buckeye" by Jim Tressel and Jeff Snook - Morning Woody Quote: July 9
