This Date in Sports History

On December 29th 1978, Ohio State head coach Woody Hayes blows up in the closing stages of the Gator Bowl with the Buckeyes losing to Clemson 17-15. When Clemson linebacker Charlie Bauman intercepts an Ohio State pass and runs into the sideline area, Hayes sets off a brief bench-emptying scuffle. The next day, the 65 year old OSU mentor will be fired after 28 years with the team, a 205-61-10 record and 5 national titles.

Happy Birthday to...

  1. Richie Sexson, Born in 1974
  2. Laveranues Coles, Born in 1977

And an early Happy Birthday to Cleveland star LeBron James who will be celebrating his birthday tomorrow, December 30th
