Food For Thought

I’ve never quite understood the difference between policies and rules, though there must be some distinction or we wouldn’t need both words. Policies, I’ve always felt, were intended to make decisions simple. If the company policy dictates that everyone must wear a uniform to work, then everyone is spared the trouble of deciding what to wear. Policies can also apply to the public that the company deals with. Take those return policies at department stores. Individual sales clerks and cashiers are not required to make judgment calls about returns and refunds.

Football Preview

Friday, Aug. 5, was Hawkeye football media day, so the next three weeks I’ll be talking about the offense, the defense and special teams.
This week… the offense, including quarterback, offensive line, tight end and wide receiver.

It all starts with the quarterback. It’s not easy to replace a three-year starter like Rick Stanzi.
All Rick did was finish with a 26-9 record and become only the third quarterback in Big Ten history to win three straight bowl games.
