Win a Copy of "Historic Photos of University of Florida Football"

This month we talked with Dr. Kevin McCarthy, a UF English professor for 37 years and author of more than 40 books. His latest, Historic Photos of University of Florida Football, came this month and to celebrate, INsite is giving away a copy of his book!

Check out a clip from our interview below, and read the rest on our Web site:
How did you learn so much about Florida football? I taught a course for about 10 years on writing about football (in the fall), and writing about baseball (in the spring). So I came to know about the history of the SEC football and football at the school. Now I’m writing about the city of Lake City, where the university used to be, and I’m now discovering that there was a football team there in the 1890s.
Many of the photos haven’t been seen in a long time, or at all. How did you get access to all the pictures and research? From two sources—my own collection of photographs, which I’ve collected from the sports info archive on campus and the Florida archive in Tallahassee. I also collected pictures from UF archives and old yearbooks.
Any predictions for this year’s season? It much depends on injuries. If the Gators can stay injury-free, they can win the SEC championship. Then it depends on what other teams do.
