    Thanks for linking that article.

    I remember the ref pushing incident vividly, right or wrong that guy will always be remembered for that one moment..

    That's terrible losing a father like that at a young age. Hope the young man can keep his head on straight and do well in life.

    BOBBY: Why do you have to hate what you don't understand?
    HANK: I don't hate you, Bobby.
    BOBBY: I meant soccer.
    HANK: Oh. Oh, yeah, I hate soccer. Yes.

    I wasn't aware Orlando Brown Sr had passed. Jr is 6'8 360 as a SOPHOMORE? I think Fran should get involved..

    Great story, shows the importance of having a mentor while you develop in life. KF gets a lot of guff for not winning as many games as he should, but one thing that is true, his players respect the man and that's cool.

    Great article Rob and thanks for posting it, Jon! Whether the kid picks Iowa or not, it's always nice to hear things like that.

    It's maddening to be cast in that light. As if Iowa has no busines being mentioned with those 'power house' schools. KF is an awsome human being.. There is no doubt. I wish the good guy would finish first for a change.

    His dad was a BEAST! Prototype for the road grader at right tackle for the Browns. He also started at OT and DT same game. Would love to see his son play at Iowa! You might remember his career basically coming to an end when a referee threw his flag at him, hitting him in the eye (and was awarded a $25 million settlement). He missed several seasons and played for a short time after that, but was never the same.

    I think Jon 1-starred it himself, so that people would say things like "Jon! Don't listen to the haters! We love you! You're a great human being! Don't let those naysayers hurt your feelings." It's all a ploy to boost his own self-esteem.

    Kind of like the skinny chick who always says "I'm so fat."

    Then again, I could be wrong, but it's just a theory.

    I didn't realize that ref incident happened so long ago. Damn time flies. I remember that like it was yesterday. That ref was lucky Brown didn't kill him after that. That man could accidently kill an average person by leaning on him. I sure wouldn't have wanted him mad at me. The article sure paints a pretty picture of us having a shot with him. Hope Ferentz doesn't drop the ball. Could be a huge get in more then one way
