    not that interesting

    I guess I'm in the minority but I didn't find this book that interesting. It was in spots and I managed to finish it but at times it was more of a chore. I just didn't think any of the storylines were that earthshaking. Nothing in this book surprised me, nothing I couldn't have read in the newpaper on any given Sunday.

    Really good book

    If you are a sports fan or a college football fan this book is something you should read. Its talks about the good and the bad parts of collrge football. Even though most of the topics are things many sports fans may already know tye depth and insight into those topics is great. Its a small inside look into a world most outsiders never see. I enjoyed it a lot.

    Sports fans this is a good read.

    While there is no earth shattering news about college sports that you didn't already know or suspect, the insights are interesting and easy to read. made a great gift to myself.

    a compelling read for the avid college football fan.

    a well-written compelling read for even the average college fan. A little west coast heavy, but that may be my southern football bias.

    Pretty Decent Read

    A great book for someone who doesn't follow college football all that much. Fascinating stories.

    Very interesting

    I am a big college football fan and this book gave a great inside look into the world of college football. Especially interesting were the chapters on Mike Leach, Nick Saban and BYU.

    Jeff and Armen have teamed up together to create one of the very best behind the scenes look at big-time college football.. It is amazing the hours and interviews they were able to glean to make this book a 21 century reality. There is a nice flow to the chapters. Not all the stories are about the glory of the game today. There are a number of troubling issues that continue to go unresolved. If you are a fan of college football, this is a book you’ll enjoy reading.
