Jerri Blair about this book: This is a book from the heart of a longtime college football fan. It is a book for and about the college football experience, a voyage into the things that make it so good. Its genesis was a reaction to the changes that have been occurring as the sport becomes so expanded by the media. The incredible beauty of the experience has been discovered by the television industry and the heightened exposure is impacting it dramatically. This is simply the story of one fan's journey from childhood as a football fan. It also contains a set of guidelines, the kind of things that have always been passed from one generation of college football lovers to the next that maintain the purity of the experience. That method of transition will be lost as the love for the sport continues to grow and be broadcast regularly on the television screen. Fans need to know how to "act like you've been there before" and this book tells you how to do that. It also contains a thumbnail sketch of some of the traditions of every one of the schools in the Power Five Conferences. It is a football-lover's book.
