    Couldn't finish. I love the thought of the story - I normally love stories like this of how sports affect and build up a community. But the writing was SO HORRIBLE. It jumped around incomprehensibly or was dry and boring and over detailed about the wrong things.

    Not a bad book, but not a great book either. Jim Dent wrote basically my favorite book of all time in "12 Mighty Orphans" and another stellar book in "Junction Boys".

    I read 2 other books by this author. The Junction Boys and 12 mighty Orphans. I am going to stop reading this book because there are just TOO many names and football facts. I probably would have continued to read if it was a little more storylike. It jumps around a little, which was kind of confusing.

    Several times during the course of reading this book, I had to check the cover to make sure I didn't pick up a book by Skip Bayless. The author was more interested in dishing out dirt than telling a story.

    writing is a bit sloppy and repetitive in parts but the indepth analysis of legend Bud Wilkinson and the era of football was excellent.
