In fact, I’m the exact opposite. I routinely shine a light on everything wrong with the conference. Yet iconic coaches simply transcend the normal level of hate in college football.
They’re giants in the sport, and they’re respected by even their biggest enemies. When the world of college football loses someone like Dye, it’s a tough pill to swallow.

There’s no doubt Dye left his mark on the world of sports, and he will be missed. Rest easy, Coach.
