What People are Saying About This

"This is a great look from the inside on what makes [Andy Talley] and the Wildcats tick. It'll give you a new appreciation of the sport on that level."—Mike Kern, sports reporter and columnist, Philadelphia Daily News

"From late August through early January, major college football at the BCS level dominates the headlines and highlights even though the majority of schools have little chance of cashing in on the millions available. This book takes the reader closer to the reality of college football, from the cost to the level of play to the desire of the coaches to do things the right way."—Todd Archer, reporter, Dallas Morning News

"Over the years, I haven't encountered a more informed source regarding Division I-AA football than Tony Moss. His phone number wasn't in my Rolodex on my desk, or in a little black book in my briefcase. It was in my head because I called him so often."—John O'Connor, reporter, Richmond Times-Dispatch
