December 1978. Losing by two points with a little more than two minutes left in the Gator Bowl, Ohio State was driving, and had moved the ball into game winning field-goal range. But then noseguard Charlie Bauman intercepted freshman quarterback Art Schlichter's short pass over the middle.

Bauman was knocked out of bounds on the Buckeyes' sideline. An irate Coach Woody Hayes went over and threw a punch at Bauman before he was restrained by several of his players. The morning after the 17-15 defeat, Hayes was fired. He never coached again. He also never apologized to Bauman for hitting him.
