Ohio State's legendary football coach Woody Hayes was asked by a Chicago writer how he continued to attract top players.


"It's very simple," replied Woody. "We recruit and coach on a positive basis. We seek the quality, the best kids. I couldn't get along with any other kind. Then we set high standards; we challenge them to be better than they think they can be. Once they find out how they can be better, they respond to you, respect you. I get sick and tired of the way our society talks down to everyone. I believe in reaching the best in the boy."
