As mentioned on HTP's Twitter feed, last December I began the research for Feral Gambits, my second book dealing with NU football history. My goal now is to complete the book by the end of 2019, with a publication date in late 2020.

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.




"...It will always be my school, our school."
--Gary Barnett, as quoted by Teddy Greenstein

"You've got a bunch of days to be students,
why not party like a rock star on Saturdays in the fall?"

--Coach Fitzgerald, as quoted in the Daily
