Format: Hardcover
A great read. Ron Fimrite's book tells the story of Cal's lengthy football history but puts it in a far larger context than what happens on the field. The history of the University, the State of California and the political and social forces at work in our society all impact the successes and failures of the Golden Bears through the years. Certainly some of the most historic moments in college football including the Wrong Way Run in the Rose Bowl and "The Play" are covered in detail. But there is much more and in Fimrite's engaging style. Careful research, a good eye and an engaging sense of humor make this a must read not only for Cal alums but for football fans everywhere.

Great book a study of Bay Area history through the lens of Cal Football. I very much appreciate how the author brings you along through the glory years of Cal football to the free speech movement of the 1960's. A must read for Cal fans, old blues, and Cal Alumni! GO BEARS!
