TTM Success – Pat Dye

I’m known as a Mountaineer.  I own over 100 West Virginia University tees.  I own about as many hats.  I’m on my local Alumni Chapter’s Board of Directors.

When I was a young’n…I was an Auburn fan.

I grew up in West Virginia but was born in Alabama, into a family of Tigers.  There are pics of me in Auburn gear from when I was very young.  I liked the Mountaineers, but for awhile, Auburn was my team.  Pat Dye was the Head Coach when I discovered the joy that is college football.

When I started working on a TTM Autograph collection and saw that Coach was a willing signer, I had to send him something.  Despite him sounding like an out-of-touch, rather bitter man when he’s on the Paul Finebaum show, I still have a lot of respect for him.  This came back to me in less than two weeks.
