Eastern Michigan was playing at Miami University (of Ohio) today and I decided to head down there to take pictures. Given the records of the two teams, I thought that Eastern actually had a shot at victory. However that was not the case. Once again, I will post pictures of other than the game here. If you want to see game pictures go to Eagle Totem.
He was also the coach during the famous Heidi Game. During this particular game, his Jets were leading 32-29 but the Raiders would score two touchdowns in the last two minutes to win the game. It was dubbed the Heidi Game because NBC Executives decided to show the movie Heidi instead of the last two minutes. There were so many complaints that NFL games are now shown in their entirety.
He would end up retired from football in 1973 and return to Oxford, OH.
He was the first coach to use game film to scout his opponents. He also implemented a number of other innovations in football. He was not well liked because he was a very controlling (but obviously successful) coach. He died in 1991.
