About the Author
Josh Dowdy is an Auburn graduate and life long fan. He grew up in the 1980s, learning what it means to be an Auburn man from his Dad—also an Auburn graduate—and learning the meaning of Auburn football from Pat Dye. He was a member of the Auburn University Marching Band his freshman year; tried out for the cheer leading squad as a junior; and somewhere in between attempted to drive a Toyota Camry to the East upper deck of Jordan-Hare Stadium. Dowdy first met Tommy Tuberville at the 1998 Auburn Christmas parade. A decade passed before the two would meet again, at Byron’s Smokehouse on the eve of Tuberville’s final A-Day. A lot happened in those ten years—both on the field and off. Since graduating from Auburn Dowdy has worked in various industries. In 2012 he earned an M.A. in Religion from Baylor University. He currently lives in Birmingham.

The author covers all the obvious story-lines. He also injects some personal stories that (for the most part) feel like welcome additions. I do feel like there could be more time spent on the BBQ Gang and its role in the Tony Franklin experiment. In the end, this helped bring the Tubs era to a close.
All in all, a fun read. Even if the era is one of many ups and downs.
