Overview

Do You Bleed Scarlet and Gray?
Then The Die-Hard Fan's Guide to Buckeye Football by Mark Rea is the book you've been waiting for; it's the guidebook to and through one of the greatest college football programs in history.

The Diehard Fan's Guide to Buckeye Football takes you back to the humble beginnings of football at The Ohio State University and works its way "Across the Field" through nearly 120 years of Buckeye football legends, including complete coverage of the national championship seasons and Heisman Trophy winners. Along the way, Rea also reveals: the rich history of Ohio Stadium along with recounts of the Horseshoe's greatest games; the person to whom Woody Hayes referred to as his "greatest booster"; exclusive accounts of some of the biggest games in college football's biggest rivalry between Ohio State and Michigan; and much more!

Finally, in a tribute to "The Best Damn Fans In The Land," several diehards have penned their favorite memories. They share seminal moments that will alternately bring a smile to your face and a tear to your eye. Written for Die-Hard Ohio State fans, this book pays homage to the players, teams, coaches, traditions and fans that comprise the Buckeye Nation.
