College Football America Flashback: 83 Days to Football

June 13 marks 83 days to the start of the major college football season on Sept. 3, 2015. Every day leading up to kickoff to the 2015 season we’ll take you back to a photo from our travels last season, a photo that may or may not be in our upcoming publication, the College Football America 2015 Yearbook. The book will be available this summer through Amazon.com, iBooks (please download the iBooks app to purchase and view) and Lulu.com. When the book hits the streets we’ll let you know. It’s the most comprehensive guide to the college football season, with preview information on every conference and every team in every division of the game in a high-quality, all-color presentation. We hope you’ll check it out. Until then check out our 2014 edition at Amazon.com and iBooks.

I love this photo — and not just because I took it. It’s not always easy to get great emotion when you’re shooting from the end zone, as I was on this day when the Iowa State Cyclones took on the TCU Horned Frogs. But I caught ISU head coach Paul Rhoads in mid-scream with an official between plays of this game. I recall that Rhoads had a legitimate beef, but don’t recall if he won the argument or not. Either way the Cyclones went on to lose big on this day and Rhoads enters 2015 as a coach that needs to win some games or risk losing his job. To be fair, ISU isn’t an easy job. But college football, like life, isn’t fair.

Check in with us tomorrow for our next photo in our College Football America Flashback.
