Mike Jensen writes "Off Campus," a regular column on college sports for The Inquirer. A staff writer with the paper since 1988, Jensen covered college basketball amd football for 15 years, wrote about soccer from 10 countries on five continents, and was assigned to the Kentucky Derby the year of Smarty Jones. He won Eclipse Awards for his coverage of Smarty Jones and Barbaro.

More recently, he's written longer stories on Eagles decision-makers, a former Eagles lineman who was arrested for stealing prescription painkillers, Charlie Manuel's first managerial job and a Philly high school basketball star who has spent his entire adult life in Sweden.

His easiest assignment: Covering John Chaney for ten years. That was stealing money.

Mike Jensen: There was no forecast, however, for what happened here.
