You knew things weren't going to go NU's way on Saturday when the Ryan Field staff couldn't erect the flaccid tunnel cat before the game. The grey inflatable cat flopped about helplessly in front of the confused, trapped marching band. Things went downhill from there.

As mentioned on HTP's Twitter feed, in December I began the research for Feral Gambits, my second book dealing with NU football history. My goal is to complete the book by the end of 2018, with a publication date in late 2019.

Because of the work on this project, I will update HTP even more infrequently than I recently have. My apologies in advance.

You can track the book's progress here throughout the year.

why not party like a rock star on Saturdays in the fall?"
