Head Coaches Dinner at the Phoenician

On Christmas Night the staffs of the two participating teams of the 2010 Insight Bowl met for dinner with the Insight Bowl committee at the famed Phoenician Resort in Scottsdale. John Junker, Executive Director of the Fiesta Bowl which oversees the Insight welcomed Iowa and Missouri and introduced each coach for a short speech.

This is the first year in many the Insight Bowl isn't on New Year's Eve. Typically this dinner is later in the week, but it was determined Christmas evening may be the best time, as children attending experienced a special dinner consisting of mac and cheese or chicken strips followed by games, cookie decorating and movies.
Typically the above photo is of the participating team's coaches, but this is Mike Schumaker, Video Coordinator of Missouri along with myself.
