Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Buckeye Rebirth is a classic by-product of strong beat reporting where access and trust equals a string of eye-opening scenes and information detailing the rise of the OSU program under Urban Meyer. Rabinowitz has done himself-and Buckeye fans-proud with this effort." —Armen Keteyian, 60 Minutes Sports correspondent and best-selling author

"The 2012 Ohio State football team will be remembered and appreciated for decades to come. There were so many potential unknowns and challenges facing this team. Buckeye Rebirth does an amazing job of recounting every step of the way-from the hiring of Urban Meyer to the improbable 12-0 season!" —Kirk Herbstreit, ESPN analyst and former Ohio State quarterback
