I worked for Big Jon Falk when I was a student at UM in the 80's. He was a great story teller then and he remains a great story teller. I was really happy to see this book come out, if nothing else so that my kids could learn a little something about this guy I always tell them about. Jon is truly one of the unsung heroes of Michigan football over the last 36 years. He knows where all the skeletons are buried at the Big House and then some. If you want a true insider's view of Michigan football, this book is not to be missed.

I don't even live in Michigan - and this is a MUST for all Wolverine and Spartan football people! What a history lesson for all the state- and nation!

NOW, about those Buckeye's- you gotta love Jon Falk and his praise for how the football bounces -BOTH ways. He knows.

Jon Falk knows how to tell a story that will make you laugh and for those Wolverine fans send chills up and down your spine.

He knows more about the inner workings of big time college football and many of the characters who make up the game. A fun read with humor and history.

As a lifelong Michigan fan, I absolutely loved reading this book! I love going to the Big House and reading these stories about things I didn't know was quite fascinating. Great book for the Michigan fan in your life!

I bought this book for my fiance's mother for Christmas this year. It came in a timely fashion and she was very excited when she got it. She loves Michigan football and has been to the big house once herself.

Jon Falk was hired by Bo, and his stories are similar to the ones in Bo's book, but a little more depth to those story's and this book is more Michigan centered than life lessons like Bo's book.

The last connection to Bo. Jon has seen a lot at U of M and is able to tell an amazing story. Well worth the price of admission and certainly a must read for any Michigan fan.

Excellent book about Michigan's long time football equipment manager, who regales with stories of Bo and more. Shows just how much goes into a football Saturday
