wow this is a great thread! There are so many it is hard to say just one. This is not a quote but when he would not buy gas in Michigan and had the team push the bus into Ohio to get gas to help Ohio's economy was priceless. When OSU was playing Michigan again and they were dining at the hotel lobby restaurant and they had nice looking ladies serve the Buckeyes. Woody got mad and told the owner to bring somebody else out to serve them and that they are trying to distract our Buckeyes. Classic!
I am 38 years old so I did not get to enjoy Woody when he coached here but I remember when they showed him speak at the graduation ceremony at Ohio State and showed him dotting the i at the game. He choked up and talked about how speaking at the ceremony was his proudest moment. That choked me up and I realized how much this man loved The Ohio State University. Love me some Woody Hayes!

This is more of a story than a quote, but has a quote in it.
OSU went down south to play an SEC team (Alabama I believe). This was at a time when Woody and OSU were being forward-thinking by starting to integrate their team, but still like a decade or more before Alabama would integrate their team. Anyway, they go to the restaurant for the team meal and are told that the few black guys on the team can't eat downstairs in the main restaurant, but would have to eat upstairs (i.e., its still a time when the South was segregated). Woody wants to go somewhere else at that point, but is informed that its the only restaurant in town big enough for the team, and no place else within driving distance is going to let the players eat all together in the main dining area. So Woody says, "then the whole team will eat upstairs!" Alas, the room upstairs wasn't big enough for the whole team, so Woody himself went upstairs and ate with his black players to show what he thought of the policy.
How Firm Thy Friendship...O-HI-O!!!
