"Glory Days, well they’ll pass you by."

I am an accidental academic with more than 20 years in higher education, primarily at the University of Arkansas, but presently a Dean at Baldwin Wallace University, a liberal arts-based Division III school. These collective experiences often inform my thoughts articulated here. You will get a lot of content on the business of college sports, media, writing, and history.
