Top Customer Reviews
As it's the most comprehensive and up-to-date college football encyclopedia commonly available, it's great that it's so well done. The writing is solid and the information is well-organized and easy to use, whether you are reading for hours at a time or just grabbing it to quickly settle a bet. This year, Boyles and Guido have even developed an advanced statistic called the College Football Performance Formula, providing a useful tool for comparing teams across different eras.
Starting with the 1953 season, each chapter contains a brief summary of the season as a whole, followed by "milestones" such as rule changes, conference reconfigurations, and coaching changes. Next comes a week-by-week analysis of the season (focusing on 10 or 12 games each week), including poll results and BCS standings as applicable, followed by the final standings of the major conferences, summaries of the major bowl games, and year-end stats leaders. Finally there are profiles of a few of the most interesting college football "personalities" of each year, a list of award winners, and the first seven rounds of the NFL draft. After the "Year" chapters comes nearly 600 pages of individual team profiles, including all-time stats leaders, historical records, and scores and lineups for each season.
Whether you're a sabermetrics-loving stats geek or just an old school fan, no college football book belongs on your shelf more than this one.
Very good action-packed format.
Easy reading and digesting of the facts.
GREAT item for a college football fan.
