For nearly three decades in the latter half of the 20th century, Woody Hayes was Ohio State football. After arriving in Columbus in 1951, Hayes’ Buckeye teams amassed an overall record of 205-61-10, winning 13 Big Ten titles and three national championships. “Success,” Hayes said, “it’s what you do with what you got.” With what Hayes had, he proved to be one of the most successful coaches in the history of college football. His grinding “three yards and a cloud of dust” offense wore out opponents, but Hayes’ commitment to his players’ education ensured that they wouldn’t do the same in the classroom. Hayes taught mandatory English and vocabulary classes to his freshmen and was referred to as “Professor Hayes” by students.
