Mark Hubbard obviously spent a great deal of time researching this book.

The book also pays homage to Notre Dame Head Coach Ara Parseghian and his staff and how they successfully changed the culture of Notre Dame Football in the 1960s.

I really enjoyed Undisputed and have been recommending it to all Irish fans.

As a late '90s grad of ND, it was illuminating to read about the buildup to the historic '66 season with the arrival of Ara, the near National Championship in '64 and the emergence of the underclassmen in '65. I knew about that period of ND football in broad strokes, but I enjoyed the details and the anecdotes from the players and Ara. That was quite a team.

I knew Ara was a great person but he really shines in the book. I am glad Hubbard laid out the facts dispelling the myth that he "played for the tie." Heck, I wasn't alive for that season, nor have I watched the game film (which I need to ASAP), but the popular soundbite is still that he gave up and settled for the tie. Hubbard sets the record straight.

Lastly, Hubbard makes a great point in conclusion that the '66 team paved the way for the school's overall reputation and its financial stability in terms of the endowment, NBC contract, significant donors, etc.

Mark Hubbard obviously spent a great deal of time researching this book. Having the good - and bad - fortune of being at Notre Dame during the time frame that this book covers, I can state that this book is totally accurate historically and I believe gives a fair analysis of the '66 Notre Dame - Michigan State game.
I am particularly impressed with the author's effort to present the real story of so many characters in this book - not just the public football persona.
A must read for anyone interested the the "Game of the Century", and the events leading up to it.

Verified Purchase
A "game of the century" comes along every few years in college football, but if there's one game that truly deserves that title it is the Notre Dame- Michigan State game of 1966 , a game still remembered and discussed 46 years later. In this well written and fast paced reminiscence, we relive that season--the "big" game--and the aftermath learning fascinating new details and with a perspective that only decades can bring. The years that the author, Mark Hubbard, spent researching the book will be apparent to the seasoned college football fan; for all others, a chance to relive an era when the college game was more pure. A great read to get reay for the upcoming season.

Mark put a lot of effort into writing "Undisputed," and it shows.

This is a well written bit of Notre Dame history; even includes a few wonderful chapters on day to day campus life. "Undisputed" accurately chronicles the events as the occurred - both from the memories of the men who played the games, and the recorded record itself. What minor stylistic imperfections do exist are easily overlooked. It reads like a good conversation.

I have the privilege of knowing the author - and its people like Mark Hubbard who will have me making trips back to South Bend for decades to come. His stories are as enjoyable in print as they are in person. If you love Notre Dame, I believe you'll like this book.
