I don't know what more to say about Norm Parker's passing that hasn't already been said, by Adam or by several other writers. Norm was... Norm. He was funny, he was brilliant, he was clever, he was stubborn, he was grizzled, he was approachable. He was authentic in the truest sense of the word. Norm was one of a kind and we'll miss him terribly.
Here's a nice video from the Iowa football folks, featuring some of the folks who knew Norm best talking about him. It's worth a watch.
