Captain Eugene V. Baker emphasized strenuous training methods with his men and instilled in them a desire not just to compete, but to win. This change set intercollegiate athletics on a new path, one that it continues to follow to this day. Baker is seated, holding the football. Walter Camp is standing with his arms crossed, over Baker’s left shoulder. (Courtesy Manuscripts and Archives, Yale University Library).
Lead studio host for the Big Ten Network. Revsine has been with BTN since its inception in 2007.
Dave Revsine’s work is filled with jaw dropping, vividly detailed stories about football’s wild, woolly formative years. If you think America’s football obsession is a recent development, or that corruption in the money-driven college game is only a modern problem, you’ll be stunned by The Opening Kickoff. A great read. I loved it!”
