This should get everybody fired up ... here is the Cleveland paper, bragging about Ohio State stealing Francis Schmidt from us back in the 1930's.
When the Buckeyes snatched away TCU's coach, and an Ohio State football tradition was born: Doug Lesmerises
"In an effort to hire a mentor well-known to Ohio fans," Milton Yelsky wrote in The Plain Dealer on March 11, 1934, "the Texas Christian coach was neglected during early stages of the coach-seeking game."
Yelsky also called Ohio State "skeptical at first at hiring a 'minor league' coach."
Eventually, athletic director Lynn St. John, the namesake of St. John Arena across from Ohio Stadium, got on the phone this man from Texas, and asked the innovative, hard-charging, Nebraska-bred football coach at TCU to take a train to Columbus.
They considered us the Little Sisters of the Poor even back in 1934!!! Slanderous! I demand satisfaction!!!!
