The Wiz brings us this mondo bizarro story: in 1982, Hayden Fry wore a bulletproof vest to games to protect himself against the threat of an assassin who sent him a death threat. The only noticeable change? The Iowa coach wore black pants instead of his usual white pants.
Two important questions here:
1. Excepting a pair of bellbottoms we saw Gerry Faust wearing once on ESPN Classic...who the hell would have the balls to wear white pants on the sidelines anymore? Besides Alvin Wyatt?
2. What kind of sick fuck would try to kill Craig T. Nelson?
Who would kill our most beloved television football coach?
