I was born and raised in upstate New York, where my first taste of big-time college football came from closely following the great Syracuse Orangemen teams of the late 1980s and early 90s. However, my passion for college football was solidified upon enrolling at the University of Iowa for graduate school in the mid-1990s. Now a Hawkeye for life, I authored the book, “The 50 Greatest Plays in Iowa Hawkeyes Football History” published by Triumph Books in 2008. I have continued to promote this book over Iowa radio and television during the last year.

I continue to keep close track of the great sport of college football from the media capital of the Big Ten Conference…Chicago, IL, where I currently live with my wife, Mary Clare and two daughters, Rory and Cayleigh.

    I am an Iowa grad - 1972 PhD. I grew up in Waterloo and started going to games in Iowa City with my Dad and my Grandfather. Sometimes we took the train! Two players who really stand out in my mind were Randy Duncan and Paul Kraus. Oh, I forgot Alex Karas.

    Last night I saw what I had been hoping for for many years. Unfortunately my Mom died of a stroke during the Orange Bowl loss to SC. She was "up there" cheering the Hawks last night! ON IOWA.
