Read BTN.com’s email Q&A with McNutt below:

BTN.com: This is an easy place to start: What have you been up to since leaving Iowa?
Marvin McNutt: I was in the NFL for three years after leaving Iowa. Then, I was living in Charlotte with my wife, and now I’m back living in Cedar Rapids working at McGrath Chevy dealership and working on getting my football camp ready for next summer in Cedar Rapids/Iowa City and Des Moines. And thinking about starting a podcast for Iowa games on Saturdays.

BTN.com: Best on-field memory at Iowa?
MM: My best on-field memory at Iowa, there are a lot… The Iowa vs. MSU play (watch it above) with two seconds left on the clock is a great one of many.

BTN.com: What is your favorite behind-the-scenes Kirk Ferentz story?
MM: Coach, I swear, would see everything you’re doing on the practice field; he would be on the other field yelling at me to do something better.

BTN.com: Who was the best cornerback you went up against at Iowa, and why?
MM: Shaun Prater, Amari Spivey and Micah Hyde, because I would have to go up against them every day so they knew my moves better than anyone and made me keep changing them and get better. But they couldn’t stop me!!!!

BTN.com: Which Iowa teammate(s) do you keep in touch with the most?
MM: Keenan Davis, Jordan Bernstine and Kevonte Martin-Manley and plenty others, but a lot of my buds are either still in the league or working. We meet up whenever we can.

BTN.com: What will you remember most about Tyler?
MM: He always thought we could do more and become greater. Since day one, we always talked about being better and making plays. He was a true competitor and great teammate and bro.
