Arranged in a unique year-by-year format, the HuddleUp! series presents readily accessible statistics and trivia about fan-favorite sports teams. Providing detailed facts and figures from the team’s history, the book includes the all-important sections on Hall of Famers, coaches, and awards garnered throughout the years, but also gives a more comprehensive view than most sports guides by providing such information as history of the conference, draft picks, or team rivals. Naturally, there is also a good helping of “greatest” entries in this record book, and any fan of the team will find this resource invaluable. The book also includes a special 2008 season review that provides anecdotes from the coach and players along with statistics, making the book important memorabilia to anyone for whom that season has extra significance. University of Oklahoma fans will become experts with this concise book of team stats and history.
