Extra Point: Wildcats fumble chance to win over fans at home opener

He would show up to the games, root for his daughter and her teammates, not say anything to or about the refs, and never forget that no matter how heated things got, it was still just a game. Of course, the fact that his daughter was a starter on a team that went 25-4 her senior year probably made it easier for him to remain even-keeled.
