TheGP Football explores Pickens’ role with the program and how such relationships may impact the NCAA.
For eight long years Steve Bartman’s silence has echoed throughout Major League Baseball. His infamous decision to reach for a contested foul ball in the eighth inning of a critical Game 6 is all that remains.

We pulled him aside to ask how he does it.
