Description


This book will end many arguments - and start some new ones.

Any college football fan, no matter where they live now or where their college loyalty lies has opinions about the game. Now, SI's team of experts once and for all settles the questions college football fans have debated since the first kickoff in College Football's Greatest.

For instance, which is the greatest program of all time, Alabama or Notre Dame? What about Ohio State? Where do Tim Tebow and Peyton Manning rank among the best college quarterbacks? Which was the better team, the 1995 Cornhuskers or the 2001 Hurricanes? Where would you find the better game-day experience - in Ann Arbor or Baton Rouge? Every facet of the game is debated and evaluated, from running back to coach and everything in between.

Throughout this deluxe edition, essays and articles from the Sports Illustrated Archives are paired with the iconic photography that SI is known for and the talented team of editors and writers weigh in with their expert opinions as well as some of their personal favorites. College Football's Greatest is the book that no football fan can be without.

From the publisher:

"In this richly imaginative debut novel, the first running of the Kentucky Derby serves as the backdrop for a story of what might have been had Abraham Lincoln survived his assassination and lived to retire with Mary to Springfield.  Derby historian Ross R. Moore provides an accurate account of the origins of the famous race, while creating a detailed and entirely plausible world through which the Lincoln's journey to Louisville to meet old friends and to face another deadly threat.  Part horse racing saga, part travelogue, part historical fantasy, part suspense thriller, chock full of sly bits of "stealth history" befitting its educator author, and peopled with memorable characters both real and imaginary, the result is an entertaining and engaging yarn and rewarding read."

Ross R. Moore is an educator, storyteller, and singer-songwriter living in San Diego.  A native of Kentucky where he attended Murray State University and the University of Louisville, he was for several years a museum educator at the Kentucky Derby Museum, sharing the history of the race with visitors. Now he brings this story to a wider audience, drawing upon his knowledge of Derby lore to form the backdrop of this, his first novel.
