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.
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.
