About the Authors
Bill Myles has lived a fascinating life in athletics, from segregated Kansas City and Negro Leagues Baseball, to an up and coming high school coach, and then an insider in the country’s most powerful College Football programs. Bill coached under the giants at Nebraska and Ohio State—Bob Devaney, Tom Osborne, Woody Hayes, and Earle Bruce. With a career record of 170 wins, 67 losses, 7 ties, and 8 Big Eight/Big Ten Championships, Bill coached in 14 college bowl games including the Rose, Sugar, Cotton, Orange, Fiesta and Gator Bowls. Bill then served 22 years as Associate AD at Ohio State, in the biggest college athletic department in the country.
Steve Davis is a lifelong Buckeye Fan and a 1973 graduate of The Ohio State University. His first Ohio Stadium experience was the 1969 OSU win over Purdue, which propelled the Buckeyes to a National Championship. Davis was too small (and too slow!) to play for the Buckeyes, instead graduating from the OSU College of Agriculture Honors Program.
