In October 1975, Ohio State football coach Woody Hayes was getting his team ready to play Iowa.

At 10TV, the phones started ringing when a rumor swept through Central Ohio that the famed coach was sick and near death.

10TV sports anchor Ted Mullins sat down with Hayes over dinner to let everyone know he was o.k.

In the video, you see Hayes laugh and say "maybe somebody started it as a joke, or it might have been wishful thinking."
