5.0 out of 5 stars A Piece of History; a Work of Art, December 28, 2011
This review is from: Husker Game Day 2010 - Farewell Big Twelve ("Husker Game Day", 2010) (Hardcover)
2010 was a historic year for Nebraska football; never before has the program's move from one conference to another (a rare event in itself) been formally documented. Husker Game Day 2010 - Farewell Big 12 is a loving look at the drama, pageantry and action of this transitional season through the photos and words of photojournalist, Ken Jarecke.

This wonderful book transcends its subject, Nebraska football and connects with the reader on a number of levels. From a photographic standpoint, Ken Jarecke has created a book that can be appreciated by anyone from a purely artistic standpoint; these photos are vibrant, beautifully realized pictures capturing the action of the game and the singular event that is college football.
Jarecke is one of the finest photojournalists working today and his creative "eye", craft and professional intuition are on display throughout this heirloom-quality book. Sports fans and certainly all football fans even if not followers of the University of Nebraska athletics will be enthralled by the photos and written insights delivered in this book.

From a historical perspective it captures a moment in time when the very foundations of college athletics are in transition: old rivalries are dying and new alliances are being formed on what seems like a daily basis. I suspect that the importance of this book will only be fully realized with the passage of time. This truly is a book that can connect generations with remembrances of a historic season of exhilarating highs and painful lows rekindled through the magic of these wonderful images. As a Nebraskan, I am very proud to own this book and the fact that it was designed, printed and bound in Nebraska makes it even more of a treasure that I, my children and their children to come will thoroughly enjoy for years.
