The 1913 Ohio State football season was the first for future Hall of Fame coach John W. Wilce.  The Wisconsin graduate came to Ohio State, ready to end the narrative that coaches came to Columbus to see their career die.  Wilce's Buckeyes would go 4-2-1 that season, but it was the first of 16 seasons at OSU and provide much-needed stability in a football program that was trying to become a national power.  This impossible to find pocket schedule was glued down to a scrapbook page over 100 years ago.
