Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

Sports columnist Travis grew up a University of Tennessee football fan, and it was clear early on he would remain one for his entire life. That's typical in the Southeastern Conference, where football on Saturdays is about as natural as butter on toast. Travis takes us with him as he chronicles the 2006 season on the SEC bandwagon. Armed with only a copy of the Volunteers' 12-game schedule, he follows the team's path, determined to wing it when it comes to finding game tickets and places to sleep along the way. Travis coins his journey the DDT (Dixieland Delight Tour) and records his impressions one week at time. Summing up his more than 8,000 miles of road traveled, Travis shares his "Lessons from the DDT," 18 nuggets of wisdom such as "No matter what fan base you're a part of, at least 15 percent of your fans suck. Really suck." There's plenty of football in these pages, but it's the irreverent attitude and willingness to make fun of one's own obsessions that give the account its zip. Wilkens, Mary Frances

Review

“As indispensible to college football fans as ibuprofen on Sunday morning.” (Warren St. John, bestselling author of Rammer Jammer Yellow Hammer)

“[Dixieland Delight] promises to be so popular down South it might replace the Bible in select motel rooms. Pretty much anyone will love this thing, but if you have even a remote interest in the SEC, this essentially is your new handbook on life.” (Dan Wetzel, Yahoo! national sports columnist and co-author of Glory Road)

“A weaving, high-spirited road trip of a book....Reading it will make you happier than a dog with two peters!” (Will Blythe, New York Times bestselling author of To Hate Like This Is To Be Happy Forever)
