When Minnesota coach Glen Mason says he has fond memories of Ohio Stadium, he means as a former OSU player, not an opposing coach.
"I've got to ask you guys a question," he said. "They're going to lower the track and put $150 million into (the stadium renovation). How much are they going to put into that visitors' locker room? Or is that staying as is?"
"Two dollars and seventy-five cents," a reporter answered.
"Well," Mason said, "that would make a big improvement."
A reporter asking former Notre Dame coach Lou Holtz a question at his press conference after OSU 45-26 victory in 1995:
Q: What did you feel like, returning to Ohio Stadium for the first time in 27 years?
A: It was emotional coming back. But I've been on the other side, and I want to tell you this. I'm sure Ohio State has upgraded their locker room facilities since I was here, but they sure haven't done a whole lot for the visiting locker room.
