I really enjoyed Undisputed and have been recommending it to all Irish fans.

As a late '90s grad of ND, it was illuminating to read about the buildup to the historic '66 season with the arrival of Ara, the near National Championship in '64 and the emergence of the underclassmen in '65. I knew about that period of ND football in broad strokes, but I enjoyed the details and the anecdotes from the players and Ara. That was quite a team.

I knew Ara was a great person but he really shines in the book. I am glad Hubbard laid out the facts dispelling the myth that he "played for the tie." Heck, I wasn't alive for that season, nor have I watched the game film (which I need to ASAP), but the popular soundbite is still that he gave up and settled for the tie. Hubbard sets the record straight.

Lastly, Hubbard makes a great point in conclusion that the '66 team paved the way for the school's overall reputation and its financial stability in terms of the endowment, NBC contract, significant donors, etc.

A "game of the century" comes along every few years in college football, but if there's one game that truly deserves that title it is the Notre Dame- Michigan State game of 1966 , a game still remembered and discussed 46 years later. In this well written and fast paced reminiscence, we relive that season--the "big" game--and the aftermath learning fascinating new details and with a perspective that only decades can bring. The years that the author, Mark Hubbard, spent researching the book will be apparent to the seasoned college football fan; for all others, a chance to relive an era when the college game was more pure. A great read to get reay for the upcoming season.

"Undisputed" by Mark Hubbard picks up the story that began with Jim Dent's book "Resurrection". Hubbard tells the story of the 1966 Notre Dame national championship team, through the words of the players that played on that team. The book focuses on the infamous Notre Dame - Michigan State game that ended in a 10-10 tie and tells the complete story of what happened and why. The book also pays homage to Notre Dame Head Coach Ara Parseghian and his staff and how they successfully changed the culture of Notre Dame Football in the 1960s. It's a book that will make you laugh, cry and make you believe in how things can be transformed with the right attitude, chemistry and belief. I couldn't put the book down until it was devoured and then I wanted more. When's the third book on the Parseghian trilogy going to be written?

Mark Hubbard obviously spent a great deal of time researching this book. Having the good - and bad - fortune of being at Notre Dame during the time frame that this book covers, I can state that this book is totally accurate historically and I believe gives a fair analysis of the '66 Notre Dame - Michigan State game.
I am particularly impressed with the author's effort to present the real story of so many characters in this book - not just the public football persona.
A must read for anyone interested the the "Game of the Century", and the events leading up to it.
