Big Ten Media Days: Pursuing the Zooker

On a park bench outside Big Ten Media Days, Bob Zook talks with Keanu

Sadkeanuicon_medium I almost had him.
Bobzookicon_medium So did I.
Sadkeanuicon_medium I chased him for three years.
Bobzookicon_medium I did the same.
Sadkeanuicon_medium I went from California to Australia.
Bobzookicon_medium Florida to Illinois here.
Sadkeanuicon_medium It transcended my job. 
Bobzookicon_medium It transcended my life.
Sadkeanuicon_medium The pursuit became...
Bobzookicon_medium All-consuming.
Sadkeanuicon_medium Exactly.
Sadkeanuicon_medium The name's Utah.  Johnny Utah.
Bobzookicon_medium Bobert Zook.

Sadkeanuicon_medium What's your story, Bobert?  What did you do for a living?
Bobzookicon_medium Oh, odds and ends.  Professional gambling, mostly.
Sadkeanuicon_medium Poker?
Bobzookicon_medium Dog racing, actually.  And I've been trying to track down my brother Ron for years.  Dude was my nose.
Sadkeanuicon_medium Your nose?
Bobzookicon_medium Yeah, I can't smell. so he used to smell for me.  I need my nose back.
Sadkeanuicon_medium Wow, that's rough.
Bobzookicon_medium What about you, Utah?  What do you do?

Bobzookicon_medium OK, OK, no need to yell.
Sadkeanuicon_medium I was chasing this surfing band of bank robbers.
Sadkeanuicon_medium They killed my partner.  They kidnapped my girlfriend.  They forced me to let them go.
Sadkeanuicon_medium And I chased their leader, this guy named Bodie, to the end of the earth, and I had him, and I let him go again, and he got away or died or something.
Sadkeanuicon_medium I lost my job.  I lost my girl.  I lost my Heisman Trophy.  Everything.  Gone.
Bobzookicon_medium Wow.  So what did you do?
Sadkeanuicon_medium I got in with the LAPD, ended up in this situation where a crazy guy put a bomb on a bus.  After that, I just kinda figured I'm bad luck in law enforcement, so I moved home and started a rock band.
Bobzookicon_medium Anything I would have heard?
Sadkeanuicon_medium Not yet.
Sadkeanuicon_medium You know, you look familiar.
Bobzookicon_medium Not as familiar as you.  I loved that movie where you bend spoons.
Sadkeanuicon_medium No, I mean I've seen you before.
Sadkeanuicon_medium Recently, too, like...wait, over there!
