9780345803030: The System: The Glory and Scandal of Big-Time College Football
Críticas:

"The best book on the sport written in years (and that's coming from someone who has written a couple). "The System" will shock fans as the saturation reporting peels back the veneer on everything from coaching politics, to sexual tension in tutoring labs, to the role of recruiting hostesses, to back-stabbing conference realignment, to super boosters, and so on. Even the hardcore fans, though, will be surprised -- everyone knows this is a wild business, just not in such detail...There's just no way a college football fan won't devour this book."
--Dan Wetzel, Yahoo!Sports
""The System" is hands-down the best college football book I've ever read. It is that rare non-fiction book that reads like a great crime novel in that you just can't put it down. "The System" covers the good, the bad and the ugly in the world of college football, including an inside look at a walk-on being picked in the first round of the NFL draft, big-time college football scandals and an epidemic of criminal behavior by players on campus. It's a completely unvarnished look at the second-most popular sport in the country that will leave you aghast at the underworld that exists beneath college stadiums."
--Jim Weber, LostLettermen.com
"There is a major storm brewing on college football's horizon. At the eye of the storm is a book that is a must-read for hardcore college football fans who want to know the truth about 'The System.'"
--Frank Cooney, The Sports Exchange
"[A] harrowing and occasionally uplifting journey -- or literary trip -- through recent history and across the country's most football-obsessed campuses."
--Harvey Araton, "The New York Times
""One of the most sweeping yet meticulously researched books ever written on big-time college football...."The System" isn't just a good read. For anyone who cares about major college athletics, it is a vital read. "The System" isn't about one aspect of college football. It's about every aspect....arrestin

"The best book on the sport written in years. . . . There's just no way a college football fan won't devour this book."--Dan Wetzel, Yahoo! Sports

"[A] harrowing and occasionally uplifting journey--or literary trip--through recent history and across the country's most football-obsessed campuses."--The New York Times

Throw[s] the penalty flag on the troubled and troubling state of college football. The Chicago Tribune

The authors are superb at humanizing figures like the college presidents struggling to maintain a balance and even longtime Ohio State booster Bobby DiGeronimo, who became a fall guy for the scandal-beset school. The Christian Science Monitor
"One of the most sweeping yet meticulously researched books ever writtenon big-time college football. . . . A vital read." The Hartford Courant

"The Systemis a broad survey of the machinery of college football."--The Wall Street Journal"

Reseña del editor:

A Shelf Awareness Best Book of the Year
NCAA football is big business. Every Saturday millions of people file into massive stadiums or tune in on television as "athlete-students" give everything they've got to make their team a success. Billions of dollars now flow into the game. But what is the true cost? The players have no share in the oceans of money. And once the lights go down, the glitter doesn't shine so brightly. Filled with mind-blowing details of major NCAA football scandals, with stops at Ohio State, Tennessee, Texas Tech, Missouri, BYU, LSU, Texas A&M and many more, The Systemexplores and exposes the complex, and perhaps broken, machine that churns behind the glamour of college football.
With a New Afterword."
