Here is your chance to go inside the huddle of the Ohio State Buckeyes, into their locker room and onto the sidelines, your chance to join your favorite players on the team plane, and at the team hotel. Go behind the scenes and peek into the private world of the players, coaches and decision makers, eavesdropping on their personal conversations. Read why Buckeyes and U.S. Presidents have mixed and mingled often through the years, often with humorous results, and how Woody Hayes always had to pick the team movie the night before each game. Speaking of the larger-than-life personality of Woody, you'll read why there was nobody better at scolding and molding his players on the field, and nobody better at taking care of them and their families off of it.

You'll have a front row seat for the times when the memories were made and hear some of the great stories from the history of Ohio State football. "Then Tress Said to Troy..." is the book written for every sports fan who follows the Buckeyes. Don't be left out of the loop. Get the first hand accounts from true team insiders.

    Book of Buckeye tales not for diehards!

    As a devout Buckeye fan, I was very excited to read this book. Sadly, of the nearly 300 pages, about 20 contained stories I haven't heard a dozen times over. Not saying that's a bad thing but only fans new to the Buckeyes can get much from that.<BR/><BR/>The worst thing about the book though has to be the editing, or lack thereof. The massive amounts of typos and incorrect stats and stories were troubling, to say the least. Overall, a disappointment.

    A Must For True Buckeye Fans

    Jeff Snook has detailed many interesting and inciteful stories and anecdotes in this behing the scenes collection. If you love the Buckeyes, you'll find this book to be a great resource to gain a greater appreciation of the people behind the sport. I'd say it's a must for a true Buckeye fan.
