On Iowa

Marc Morehouse
Hi, I'm Marc Morehouse. I've covered sports for more than 15 years, mostly in Eastern Iowa. I've had Hayden Fry call me "Mike." I've had Chad Greenway call me "Mr." And Kirk Ferentz will occasionally call me "bleep." (Kidding, kidding.) I have fun with the blog. I've made some great connections with a few readers and hope to continue that. Ultimately, I want to know what you want to know. Thanks for reading.
