The popular college football analyst weighs in on the craziness of college football and the 2008 season

If television's college football analysts had a Hall of Fame, Craig James would definitely be in it. His opinion and insight on ABC and ESPN-not to mention occasional jabs of sharp humor and Texas charm-are as addictive as the games are.

He makes the book timeless by using the season as a springboard to tell tons of great college football stories from his twenty years spent covering the sport .

  • Captures twenty years of unforgettable college football wit and wisdom from his time as a player at SMU and for the New England Patriots through his time in the booth
  • Includes details about most of the top twenty programs around the country
  • Covers the game the way only James can ("No one can capture the essence and spirit of a college football season better than Craig."-Doug Flutie)
