Winter Social

February 24, 2018 @ 11:30 am - 1:30 pm

We may look up to our favorite sports heroes as gods: powerful, athletic, and able to do no wrong. Yet their fate is in the hands of decision makers who are far from perfect.

Nowhere is this truer than in the storied world of college football. One team rises while another falls, not always in proportion to the players’ talent—or where their college is located. A place like Tuscaloosa, Alabama, can rise to prominence while Houston falls behind. A tactical mistake can haunt a team for decades, while a chance occurrence, even one that looks like a setback, can provide a surprising boost.

What If? incisively yet irreverently examines the history of college football’s big decisions, from the Airplane Conference to Chicago’s Big Ten departure, sharing many stories and pointing out the merits and drawbacks of pivotal decisions along the way.

Join us for our 2018 Winter Social at Tommy Joe’s in Bethesda at 11:30am on Saturday, February 24. Meet Matt Brown, Ohio State alum and SB Nation College League manager, and author of What If?: A closer look at college football’s great questions! A limited number of books will be available to purchase.
