College really is supposed to be about learning. Well, that and the kegs of beer, but I digress. You’d think someone, the NCAA, the schools themselves could find a better…
I did this cover illustration for the Boulder Daily Camera’s football preview section. I had a blast doing it. Thanks ever so much to Daily Camera sports editor Jennifer Osieczanek…
The game changes so much from year to year, sometimes it’s hard to keep up. this was inspired by a story from a few weeks back about misplaced jewelry on the field. This just seemed a funny contrast to me from the days when contacts were all you could ever lose (besides a fumble). So here’s a little frivolity for today. The last two days have been so somber.
BYU is the latest to leap out of a conference and into a new beginning. The amount of shuffling going on in College conferences has really reached a level of absurdity.

Sure hope all of you had a great Labor Day weekend. And isn’t it great? It’s Football season!!!!
This time of year it’s so easy to get caught up in the football season and forget what really matters. lost often times are the students who spend endless hours studying, researching, and reading. Why we don’t celebrate those people more is beyond me. It’s part of the culture to raise up athletes to a ridiculous stature and and ignore the amazing contributions that intellectual in nature. It’s too bad. We miss esteeming a lot of kids that way.

It’s tough when coaches have lost their edge, can’t see it and refuse to hang it up before they are pushed. Bobby Bowden and Joe Paterno come immediately to mind. Great coaches in their day but both have clearly they coached past their primes. And after years of great football how can anyone really push them out the door. An official from inside the Florida State program was quoted as saying about the Bowden dilemma “we have to take the emotion out of it. We have to make it a business decision.” That doesn’t bode well for Bowden.
I’ll be drawing about game 1 of the Rockies-Phillies playoff series. Check in later Wednesday night for a toon.
