That's funny they talked about him hitch-hiking when he first became an assistant coach...
My grandfather is 87 years old and he has told me the story many times about how he hitchhiked from Kentucky up to NYC for the 1939 World's Fair (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/1939_Ne...d%27s_Fair
). He told me about seeing a television for the first time... they were broadcasting the signal like fifty feet or something and people were absolutely floored!
Amazing how the world has changed!
