A couple of years ago Yost asked if someone could dig up a copy of the Woody Hayes Clemson punch from the 1978 Gator Bowl. It took me a couple of hours to dig up the clip from a Clemson web site and throw some Best Damn Band music on it. Since July 2006, when I uploaded this clip on YouTube it has been viewed 287,763 times. I eventually had to turn off the comments feature because I was getting tired of deleting "F*uck Michigan" and "Woody waz the BEST" feedback from the buckeye brain surgeons that frequent that corner of the internet.
Until last week, I never actually watched the 1978 Gator Bowl game. If you are interested in seeing the actual game, I have uploaded it to MGoVideo. It is not exactly a HD broadcast, but it was a pretty good football game. Most people are only interested in this part....
As I watched and listened to Keith Jackson and Ara Parseghian attempt to describe the chaos following the interception -- I found it funny that neither of them had any idea that Woody had slugged Charlie Bauman. They both watched the replay. Not a word.
To add more chaos, Woody ended up getting another 15 yard penalty for refusing to leave the field a play later. That was what Keith and Ara focused on the rest of the way.
Even as the game ended, they had no idea that Woody had punched a Clemson player. Not one spotter pointed it out. I think everyone was in shock.
