Tom Osborne was more than a football coach. This book evinces that fact.
on August 15, 2016
I read this book eight years ago. If you're looking for a book that will talk about Nebraska's glorious 1990s decade under Tom Osborne, then you've picked up the wrong book.
What you will get in this book is chapters dedicated to Osborne's tried and true methods on how to run a big-time college football program.
You see, Osborne was more than a head coach. The man was interested in helping to make 25-years worth of Cornhusker players more than just football players. He wanted his players to represent the Nebraska program as hard-working football players. And he also wanted his players to be role models in the community, through their taking care of business in the classroom as well as donating their time to various Omaha area hospitals, charities, and etc.
The main demographics that will enjoy this book, are die-hard Nebraska football fans from the 20th century and football coaches who may need a little help on running their high school, college, or even pro football programs.
