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.
