I see my former Iowa Hawkeye friend Brad Lohaus has made Sports by Brooks, and Deadspin. He is a salesman for an aviation service, which is interesting. He once owned the best pizza bar in town --and best window on scenery in downtown Iowa City-- The Airliner.
Lohaus was recruited by Lute Olson to Iowa basketball. He was buried by George Raveling (I saw Raveling sprint on the court once to lay into Lohaus with a vengeance). Lodawg was resurrected by Tom Davis on that wonderful 1986-7 Hawkeye team that went something like 31-5 (link to classic piece featuring both Brad Lohaus and ex Hawk coach Steve Alford).
In happier times Lohaus built a huge house next to Tom Davis on Finkbine Golf course. (The Nation drives by it every day). Brad was the leading contributor to Hawkeye Sports back then.
Lohaus is a nice guy. He will talk to anyone at anytime. Pull out of the tailspin, Brad. The Nation wishes him well.
