This interview is part of a series about football games, collectively known as the Hairy Bacon Bowl, that were played during the first half of the 1970s at the University of Colorado, Boulder. The teams were made up of university students, many of whom identified with hippie culture and/or anti-war beliefs, versus campus and City of Boulder police officers. The goal was to ameliorate tensions between the two groups. Charlie Nay was a police officer with the Boulder Police Department from 1966 to 1983 and coached the police Hairy Bacon Bowl team in the first of these games, played in 1970. He believes that the games were helpful in that the familiarity that they created between police and counterculture students engendered friendliness in subsequent encounters. He describes policing during that era, including handling political protests and managing the burgeoning hippie population in Boulder. He also reflects on the evolution of policing and present-day challenges.
