A Stage Full

**  Woody Hayes coached football at Ohio State from 1951 through 1978.  He died in March of 1987.
**  Last night (4/15/16) every living Ohio State head coach since 1979, former and current, was on the same stage in Columbus.  That’s 37 seasons  worth.  The occasion was the annual clinic for high school football coaches.  Current Buckeye boss Urban Meyer said, “It’s not like this in many places.”
