It’s Thanksgiving week! Nebraska gets its annual rivalry game with the Iowa Hawkeyes this week! Black Friday! Woooooo!

This episode, Scott Dochterman, who covers Iowa Football for The Athletic, joins me to talk about the game!

Scott and I discuss:

  • Iowa football - they started 0-2 and have since won three in a row, crushing Michigan State, Minnesota and Penn State
  • The Iowa offense - Tyler Goodson, Spencer Petras, and Mekhi Sargent
  • The Iowa defense - where are they weak, can they carry Iowa
  • The recent history of the Nebraska - Iowa games in the Big Ten
  • Luke McCaffrey or Adrian Martinez?
  • The up and down behavior exhibited by teams this year
  • His take on Scott Frost and Nebraska - where they’re at, what’s right, what’s wrong

I Wrote A Book

In August, 2015, I suffered a widowmaker heart attack and died for 20 minutes. I wasn’t supposed to live, and if I did, I wasn’t supposed to be me anymore because of oxygen deprivation to my brain.

I’m still here. Mostly. I have gotten most of my life back. What I went through is in this book. If you’re someone who would like a true story of resilience, you’ll enjoy my book.

It is available on Amazon right now. The ebook is $3.99 for a limited time.
