I heard today that he passed. Had a heart attack in his recliner.

Anyone else hear anything?

 EDIT: It was his Dad, who also played football for AU, that passed away.

Sorry to prematurely speak of Wayne's demise. Its not every day you get a father and son that both played at AU.

Googled for news on it and all I saw was a CCTAU doppelgänger posting about it on aufamily. There can only be one. I vote we track down the copycat and kick his ass.

Bring it little fellas.

Wayne was from Opelika and came into AU bald. I think he had alopecia or something.

If you saw him, you’d remember him. He wore 55 in 1990.

So just to confirm: There were two Wayne Bylsma's that played football at Auburn. The elder Bylsma has passed from heart complications and his son is a survivor.

Yes. His dad’s name was Bruce I think. Played in the early 70s.

Also, I can confirm that you and I have played in just as many football games at Auburn as CTEAU.

We can also throw Snags, Snakebite, GH, Wes,WD6, Six, Jarhead, Buzzy, GF (pre death), Sani (pre sexual identity crisis), Dallas, Token, WE!!!, AUChizad, AUChizad!, Bgreene, Jumbo, Prowler, Kaos (I think of he and Prowler together sometimes) and whomever I have left off.

Too Chay and the chinook guy. But I did include Jarhead. How could anyone forget Jarhead? Seriously, let me know if you find out, how.

I have, however, been in the head coach's office, when I went it and asked Terry Bowden to autograph the 1993 Sports Illustrated.
