I remember Rob Lytle. He was a very good football player on some very good teams. May his family find peace and comfort in some fashion during this time of sorrow.

Word has it that years after Lytle picked UM over OSU, to the chagrin of Coach Hayes, it was Coach Hayes who talked then Denver Broncos coach Dan Reeves ear off complimenting Lytle for about 40 minutes.
