Pop Warner: A ‘creative genius’ and innovator of footballUniversity of Georgia
The football programs at the University of Georgia and Iowa State University don’t share a lot in common. They’ve never played each other in the 130 years since they each started formal football programs in 1892. Their campuses in Athens, Georgia, and Ames, Iowa, are separated by 800 miles. They don’t even compete in the same recruiting pool for players. Yet in 1895, Georgia and what was then called Iowa Agricultural College and Model Farm shared the same first-time head football coach – Glenn Scobey “Pop” Warner.
