"Following in the tradition of In Cold Blood (but without the murders), Mr. Rasley has written a sweeping historical non-fiction novel that explores the relationship between academics and sports through the lens of the Chicago Maroons football team." Jeff Haas Goodreads Book Reviews
"Jeff has weaved philosophy, religion, Indiana values, and even the drug culture of the period into a wonderful story about football and the history of the University of Chicago into a book you cannot lay down." Hank Wolfla, Indianapolis Scientech Club"
I was one of Jeff's teammates on the Maroons in the 70's and I witnessed many of the events that form the basis for the plot. While the names have been changed to protect the (not so) innocent, Jeff has brilliantly captured the mood of our time together and produced a captivating and entertaining narrative." Curt Spiller, Order of the 'C'

The book is, though, well written and accompanied by photos that evoke the sport and the big characters that always dominate sport. Chicago University accepting American fooball on campus is also well developed. So for those who love American football, this book is a great read.
I can easily relate to the young "Coach Dubka". Great read.
