Who was Charlie Bauman?

Watching the start of Clemson-Ohio State brought that name to my mind. Without Googling, why did I think of him?

Is he the guy Woody Hayes punched?

Correct. He was the Clemson linebacker punched by Woody Hayes after intercepting a pass near the Ohio State sideline.

In the Gator Bowl. I saw it live plain as day. The TV guys never mentioned it during the broadcast.

I remember watching it with my Dad. He said, “Did he just hit that player?” as soon as it happened. I don’t remember if there was a replay of the play or not. I think there was and I saw it then. But that was a long time ago!
