    I really enjoyed this I thought the format and point of view were really perfect for what the book was trying to do It succeeded in giving the reader a look into what it takes to be a top football program on any given week You'll certainly gain an appreciation for the coaches and athletes after reading thisThat being said this is not one of those sports books you can just pick up and read without knowing anything about football for the human interest side of things If you don't know anything about football you'll be lost in jargon you don't understand But if you DO watch football this is a must readIt's also a good read for us younger fans of the modern game It's always interesting to realize these players would go off to the army or other odd jobs during the off season and come back for training to get back in shape These were the days before huge money got paid out These were also the days when Paul Hornung could be your halfback all the way down the field and then also kick the field goals That type of player just can't exist in the current system Amazing
