One nice feature. . . . There are both data from the 2010 (or 2009) season and historical data. Thus, one can compare current performance with the historical record. One can see how the top passers in 2009 (Drew Brees and Philip Rivers) compare with Arnie Herber in 1932 or Sammy Baugh in 1947 or with Charley Conerly in 1959. If a figure filbert, a great resource!
This book is a load of fun for those who love sports history and statistics. . . .
2004 poll incorrectly "vacates" the AP national championship. The AP does not follow the practice of the coaches' poll and the BCS in not recognizing teams on NCAA probation.
These are only a few errors in the college football section. Readers will need to beware recent updates in other sections too. This kind of sloppy editing only speeds the day when hard copy almanacs go the way of home delivery milk bottles and audio casettes. It's a shame.
While I liked the fact the SI Almanac put in the standing for every NFL season, overall it is a poor substitute when compared to the ESPN Almanac from 2009.
I hope ESPN decides to get back to putting out their outstanding almanac. Until then we are stuck with this second-rate substitute.
