Even with the lack of information regarding my personal favorite team, there still is plenty of stuff. The pictures here are glossy, huge, and very colorful (or a very vibrant black and white). There's collisions, running, plays in action, some field storming, and pictures of Steve Spurrier when he was in college (!!!). The artifacts section is very cool, spanning helmets (the very first helmet is a scream), nose guards, and even the dirt of the first college football game played. On a side note, I also like the scoreboard of that Georgia Tech Vs. Cumberland game (220-0!). If you haven't noticed already, this book has a lot of perks. College football fans will appreciate all this book has to offer.
As far as writing goes, each era (20's to 00's, plus an "pre years" or something of that nature), which includes information about the era, dynasties of that time, Heisman winners, All-decade Teams, and "epic games". Scattered throughout are columns and essays written by various writers, on such topics like Herschel Walker, Steve Spurrier, OJ Simpson, Bear Bryant, Joe Paterno, Woody Haynes, Archie Manning (Why no Peyton Manning?), and Vince Young.Read more ›
