    Former football letterwinners

    I started looking at the list of former letterwinners in the football media guide and it is fun to see a lot of names that I had forgotten about.
    Anyway, I came across a name and I can't believe I didn't know this before today. Nile Kinnick, Sr. lettered at Iowa State in 1913 and 1914.
    How the hell did we let his kid go to Iowa??

    Re: Former football letterwinners

    Well, now that the original poster has been thoroughly corrected...

    While I can't say that I am fond of the institution that he attended, Nile Kinnick, Jr. did give one of the best Heisman Trophy reception speeches of all time. He was a man of very high character and someone that we would all do well to learn a thing or two from. Look up his speech--I promise you won't regret it.
