Urban Meyer wants to test you on your knowledge of Woody Hayes

No turtle factoids. We promise.

Urban Meyer's handing out crib sheets for an exam on Friday. Time to study up.

Per the mayor of Columbus Dom Tiberi, Urban Meyer has been giving his Ohio State Buckeyes football players crib sheets of facts about Buckeyes legend Woody Hayes all this week with designs on testing them at week's end. Earlier in the day, the university unveiled an 8-foot bronze statue in Hayes' likeness to pay tribute to the former OSU football coach a day before what would've been the coach's 100th birthday.

Now in terms of what you need to study up on if you want to avoid stadium steps, here's the top page of Meyer's factoid sheets in its entirety:
