I was blessed to have broadcast some of Notre Dame's biggest games, including the historic win over UCLA that ended the longest winning streak in men's basketball at 88 games. Mike Coffey's book made me feel like I was back again at the Joyce Center. (Dick Enberg CBS News)
If you love the Fighting Irish of Notre Dame you will be thrilled with the info and data collected for this book by Mike Coffey. A basketball lover's delight. (Dick Vitale ESPN the Magazine)
Mike Coffey offers insight into the dignity of a Fighting Irish program which has been able to compete at the highest level of intercollegiate basketball with accomplishment despite the rigors of a consistent academic priority and strong intellectual achievement. This storied history of the Irish through the eras of Hawkins, Carr, Shumate, Brokaw, Dantley, Tripucka, Paxson, Rivers, Garrity and Thomas proves the rich lineage of Notre Dame basketball. (Bill Raftery ESPN the Magazine)
Even as it recounts storied seasons of the past, this book gives reason to believe that even greater days lie ahead for men's basketball at Notre Dame. (Morgan Wootten Hall-Of-Fame Basketball Coach)
The early chapters were like a stroll with old friends like Moose Krause, Johnny Jordan, Johnny Dee, Fr. John Smyth, Gene Sullivan and the old Fieldhouse, with the latter-day tales of Digger and his adventures under the Golden Dome equally enjoyable. I couldn't put it down, and read it in one sitting, even though I knew how it came out. (Bill Jauss, Columnist, Chicago Tribune)
Intersperses descriptions of teams, games and seasons with comments from players, coaches and others. (Rich Gotshall, The Indianapolis Star)

Not having Digger in there is a disappointment, but since Digger has his own book right now, it's understandable why he didn't want to participate.
If you like Notre Dame or college basketball (or both), this one is a must have.
