This blog is about my 5,200-mile road trip in the fall of 2010 to the eight member schools of the University Athletic Association. I wanted to connect -- geographically -- a conference founded not on geography, but on the ideas that competitive college athletics have inherent value, that competitive sports and high academic achievement are not mutually exclusive, and that for student-athletes, studies always come first.
Honey has been taking some well-deserved rest here in Atlanta since we returned from our UAA trip a month ago. And because I have become something of an RV Whisperer, I know what's on her mind. Honey wishes all the folks of the UAA a happy and prosperous New Year -- and may none of your tires ever blow out on an interstate highway!!!
