Tom VanHaaren and I sat down to talk about fatherhood, working at ESPN and his love for college football. We also talk about the best type of cakes. We first chat about Tom and his wife, Laura becoming parents for the first time while he was transitioning from careers. Tom opens up about his passion for college football and the recruitment process. He shares a very unique story that he discovered while writing his book, The Road to Ann Arbor: Incredible Twists and Improbable Turns Along the Michigan Recruiting Trail. We finish the interview with the Fatherhood Quick Five.
