'Cane Mutiny: How the Miami Hurricanes Overturned the Football Establishment

( 3 )

Overview

One team. One Dynasty. One book that goes inside the legend.

Features a new chapter on the 2004-05 season-and 8 pages of photographs.

When fans think of college football, they think of Miami-the cool school with street cred that all the kids dream of playing for. A sports powerhouse unlike any other, it is a dynasty fueled not by individuals but by the aura of "the Miami Vice"-a swaggering, trash-talking, us-against-the-world mentality. But ...

Overview

One team. One Dynasty. One book that goes inside the legend.

Features a new chapter on the 2004-05 season-and 8 pages of photographs.

When fans think of college football, they think of Miami-the cool school with street cred that all the kids dream of playing for. A sports powerhouse unlike any other, it is a dynasty fueled not by individuals but by the aura of "the Miami Vice"-a swaggering, trash-talking, us-against-the-world mentality. But less than 25 years ago, the program faced extinction. Now, five national championships later, Miami is the preeminent football factory, boasting such NFL star alumni as Michael Irvin, Ray Lewis, Warren Sapp, Jim Kelly, Vinny Testaverde, and Jeremy Shockey.

Now, award-winning sportswriter Bruce Feldman gives readers a rare, behind-the-scenes look at how Miami won more national championships over the last two decades than Notre Dame, Oklahoma, and Florida State combined-and went from near-death to dynasty.

Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
In the past two decades, no college football combine has been more dominant than the Miami Hurricanes. The evidence is indisputable: National championships in 1983, 1987, 1989, 1991, and 2001, undefeated seasons in 1987, 1991, and 2001. Bruce Feldman's 'Cane Mutiny celebrates a pigskin powerhouse that confounded the experts.
Publishers Weekly
Sportswriter Feldman (ESPN The Magazine) reports on the Miami Hurricanes' legendary success story without sugarcoating the team's notorious problems off the field, which include substance abuse, violence and scandals. The author shows how the team, which has been one of college football's powerhouses for 25 years, put the "nasty" in dynasty. Its players became the bad boys of college football, epitomizing the image of the academically underachieving, macho, entitled athlete; taunting their opponents and, as Feldman demonstrates, committing personal fouls basically for the fun of it. (Indeed, the statute prohibiting such behavior has become known as "the Miami rule.") Not that everything always came easily. With a frenetic, fast-moving narrative, Feldman tells how Miami's coaches stayed consistently ambitious and hungry, always looking to make a name for their team. Several Hurricanes players have gone on to the NFL, more often than not as first-round draft picks (notably, Vinnie Testaverde and Bernie Kosar). The 'Canes' success, says Feldman, lies in their ability to replace departing stars with players of equal or greater talent. Whether he's writing about Ray Bellamy becoming Miami's first black player (in 1966) or the team's amazing track record (they've won more national championships over the last 20 years than Notre Dame, Oklahoma and Florida State combined), Feldman's knack for storytelling will draw readers in.

    Good Read Even For Hurricane Haters

    Formerly an anti-Miami football fan before reading this book. This book accurately pinpoints the orgins of the traditional Miami 'us against the world' mentality seen every Saturday in the fall. It portrays how the blatant cockiness of the Hurricanes is a pivitol part of the program, all while providing an in depth analysis of the program.

    Great Read

    I just could not put the book down. I breezed through it in no time at all, and was almost sad when it ended. It left me wanting more. i knew a lot of the stories that were told, but definitely not all of them. Feldman deserves high praise because he lays the whole program out on the line and opens up the Miami family for all of his readers.
