About

I'm a 59 yr. old man, who has been disabled for about 6 years now due to a series of surgeries that started with my back, then nerve damage in my legs & feet and finally a unique condition was discovered in my spine. I worked in factories most of my life. I was very active in high school "back in the day". I was a tackle in football & a HWT. in wrestling. Also active in school plays, student government, newspaper, yearbook, etc., etc. I attended junior college one year & tried to enter US Navy in '73 but an injury from a farm accident prevented me from getting in. I've been married over 32 years to a wonderful woman & have 2 great adult 'kids' plus two grandaughters who helps to keep my spirits up.And I have another grandchild on the way come early September. And I believe I've converted both my son-in-law & my daughter-in-law into becoming Hawkeye fans also. Life is good in many ways but never take your health or physicality for granted. It could be here today & gone tomorrow as I've found out. Yet I know there are others who have it worse & many are children who never really had a chance or the opportunities that many of us have had. Good luck to you & your team[s]! And Go Hawks!!!

    Hey Turk!

    Barta is definitely the one who is responsible for KF's extension. I'm not saying that Kirk didn't deserve one and I'm one of the few who DOESN'T think he's overpaid but no one deserves that kid of job security, After the Orange Bowl W over GA Tech he was worth 3.8 mil a year but the team has regressed each year after. I don't see the program dropping into the cellar past this season. I think this year was just the perfect storm of injuries, new personnel and our style of football (conservative play calling, poor clock management and rollercoaster special teams) which will plague this program year in and year out.

    The worst is behind us! Kirk will get the pieces together and next year we'll will be laughing about this!

    Hey Turk! Thanks for the like of my OL article. The lineman definitely need some love every so often...the trenches are where battles are won! You should become a fan of me so you can know when my newest articles are out.

    Thanks for the like again,

    Hello Richard!

    I haven't been commenting much this year on Bleacherreport.

    Anyhow, with hindsight being 20/20, who would you have started last season at QB, Vandy or Stanzi?
