Talking College Football History: Bob Christian

Bob Christian joins us this week on the podcast.  You should remember Bob as a fullback in the NFL for 11 years with the Chicago Bears, Carolina Panthers and Atlanta Falcons.  He was part of the "Dirty Birds" team that made the Super Bowl after the 1998 season.  But did you know that Bob played at Northwestern from 1987-1990 when the Wildcats only won 6 games in 4 years?  He ended up being a 12th round draft pick in 1991 by the Chicago Bears and made the most of his opportunity.  Bob talks about the adversity he faced and how he overcame it to produce a solid NFL career, which led to his career as a pilot currently.
