Growing up a college football fan in California, I had always wanted to make it to Marshall University.  Marshall sits in the beautiful rolling hills of southern West Virginia.  My desire to get to Marshall was mostly because of what I knew about the tragic plane crash, but I learned there is a lot of history besides the tragedy. The first thing I noticed upon arrival is that, “Big Brother” West [ . . read more . . ]

The Fighting Illini – Game day in Champaign

PRE-GAME FESTIVITIES Part of what I love about these game day stories, is how much I actually learn as a fan.   I had no idea about the rich tradition of football at the University of Illinois.   In recent years, times have been lean.  In 2001, Ron Turner guided the Fighting Illini to a 10-2 record and a Sugar Bowl invite.   Since that time Illinois has had just three winning seasons.   In February, Illinois [ . . read more . . ]
