Big Ten lunch links

The Big Ten lost one of its own today in New York Yankees owner George Steinbrenner. The Boss earned his Master's degree at Ohio State from 1954-55 and served as a grad assistant under Buckeyes legendary football coach Woody Hayes. Steinbrenner went on to serve as an assistant at both Northwestern (1955-56) and Purdue (1956-57) before entering the shipping business.

Although he made his name as a baseball owner, his roots in football were obvious with how he ran the Yankees. RIP.
