The homie B-Stiles also caught that. In my defense, I did not become an Iowa fan until 2004. /sigh

There is no group set up -- it's a direct donation, so you're good to go. I think they emailed after a bunch came in at once last week.

Haha, had not seen that before. Is the fact that it was a first down and not a touchdown even more disrespectful somehow?

Shooting from the hip here, but I feel very strongly that he will not go back to the NFL. He's had too much success in college, and if he's thinking about his legacy, it makes way more sense to stack that and own the history books.

Section was written before that dropped -- but yeah, really good. "Come watch our non-entertaining team kickoff before noon". Great pitch, bro.

The bad NFL is stupid and typically requires you to go to YouTube to watch their clips; so it might work but not as an embed.

1) Legit looked up the Gable spelling before typing his name, and still got it wrong (blame my fandom of Laura Jane Grace, who formerly went by Tom Gabel).

2) Mostly a troll of the '85 Bears... mostly.

I know every high end magazine photo shoot is usually a half-baked concept with sometimes decent results, but I really, truly want to know what that pitch looked like on paper. Couldn't even begin to guess.

I realize how lame what I'm about to say is gonna sound... but wouldn't the profanity DQ it? Or are you thinking instrumental?
