A little before my time (I was 8 when he was fired from OSU), but man did he set up OSU for my time, having hired both Tress and Urbs to his coaching staff.  Urban has always been a very vocal Earl Bruce guy.

His departure from Colo St. Which a big deal at the time, would be such a bigger story in this era.  His press conference was quite a scene.

Rip.

His last game as Buckeye coach was an upset of the Wolverines, after which he was carried off the field by his players.

Clark’s catch is still one of the most iconic plays in NFL history.  OAM was asking in another thread about earliest bowl memories. One of my earliest sports memories is that Championship Sunday in January of 1982.  The Bengals beat the Chargers in “The Freezer Bowl” in the early game and then the 49ers and Cowboys played their instant classic in the nightcap.  

ALS is a horrible disease but Dwight Clark will forever be the guy making the fingertip catch in the back of the end zone in Candlestick Park to me.

Wasn't yet born when that final play happened, but growing up and playing football with the neighbor's kids, Clark's "The Catch" was always the plassing play we tried to emulate in our backyards.

Not sports related, but Anthony Bourdain has passed today, apparently of suicide.  Once again I hope something like this helps shed some light on mental illness in our country.

RIP
