Editorial Reviews

From the Inside Flap

Do You Bleed Scarlet and Gray?

Then The Die-Hard Fan's Guide to Buckeye Football by Mark Rea is the book you've been waiting for; it's the guidebook to and through one of the greatest college football programs in history.

The Diehard Fan's Guide to Buckeye Football takes you back to the humble beginnings of football at The Ohio State University and works its way "Across the Field" through nearly 120 years of Buckeye football legends, including complete coverage of the national championship seasons and Heisman Trophy winners. Along the way, Rea also reveals: the rich history of Ohio Stadium along with recounts of the Horseshoe's greatest games; the person to whom Woody Hayes referred to as his "greatest booster"; exclusive accounts of some of the biggest games in college football's biggest rivalry between Ohio State and Michigan; and much more!

Finally, in a tribute to "The Best Damn Fans In The Land," several diehards have penned their favorite memories. They share seminal moments that will alternately bring a smile to your face and a tear to your eye. Written for Die-Hard Ohio State fans, this book pays homage to the players, teams, coaches, traditions and fans that comprise the Buckeye Nation.

Praise for The Die-Hard Fan's Guide to Buckeye Football

"During the first five minutes of reading Mark Rea's The Die-Hard Fan's Guide to Buckeye Football, I learned a ton about our storied program that I had no idea about. Every Buckeye needs this book! In fact, this coach needs to study it diligently!"
--Jim Tressel, Head Football Coach, The Ohio State University

"I've known Mark Rea since I was a player at Ohio State and I've always found him to be very fair and thorough in his reporting of the Buckeye program, so I am not surprised to see such extensive and insightful storytelling in his latest effort. The Die-Hard Fan's Guide to Buckeye Football is a must for every Buckeye fan!"
--Kirk Herbstreit, College Football Analyst, ESPN

"Mark Rea has done a splendid job of giving us the inside stories of Ohio State's greatest traditions as well as the top 10 players of each decade. This is an excellent book and Mark provides cherished insights never before revealed. I've known Mark for many years and have always admired his work. I know you will enjoy The Die-Hard Fan's Guide to Buckeye Football--it's excellent!"
--Jack Park, Ohio State Football Historian, The Ohio State Football radio Network

Format: Paperback
This book is an informative history of Ohio State football and I can tell it was written from the heart of the author. You will learn things about the Buckeyes you never knew plus read some personal stories from authentic die hard Buckeye fans.

For Ohio State fans trying to decide between the many Ohio State football books out there which Buckeye football book to purchase, if it only comes down to one, I highly recommend Mark Rea's book. You won't be disappointed at all. Mark is a gifted sports writer who is obviously a die-hard Buckeye fan himself.

The Diehard Fan's Guide to Buckeye Football comes from a journalist who explores over a hundred years of Buckeye football, covering national championships and Heisman Trophy winners alike. Here's a history of the greatest games and players packed with lists of top players by decade, tributes to favorite memories, and more. A powerful guide for any football reference collection.
