My favorite memory was when he was fired the band went to his house and played on his front lawn. Then they beat the team up north and they carried him off the field. Groot with ohio state. In spite of being a lifelong Michigan fan and football season ticket holder, this is still one of my favorite traditions in all of college football. To have Earle Bruce. dot the “I” in Script Ohio was a true honor for him.

I hate losing to the Buckeyes but always felt bad for the guy that he was fired then beat us after the fact. I hope he enjoyed some degree of satisfaction during the Cooper years. Hail and Farewell Coach Bruce! There are traditions, and then there are the truly elite traditions. Groot with ohio state. Have no ties, just tons of admiration for this tradition. I remember him on the sidelines and then later in the press box as an analyst after he was unceremoniously fired as coach. He certainly was a character. From a Michigan fan.

Linie-gate will not be the same. Coach, our sadness is a reflection upon your love of The Ohio State Buckeyes. Your toughness and compassion will be missed. I know he got the rap for difficulties playing Michigan. Probably the first coach (now there are more) who was ever fired for averaging 9-2 seasons. Never forget his psych game down in Baton Rouge when he refused to enter the field first against LSU. The Tigers were loaded and heavily favored but he made them come on first and then had his team go on the field while the fans were cheering the home team. They then played to a tie with a team that in all fairness should have beaten them. Great moment.
