Praise For…

“For everyone who values college football, ESPN College Football Encyclopedia is an enormous endeavor and a fine tribute to the game.” —Joe Paterno, head coach, Penn State

“Let us give thanks to the college football gods, for unto us a bible is given. . . . Massive in scope, minute in detail, and more than three years in the making, it’s a worthy successor to its ancestor, The Baseball Encyclopedia. Editor Michael MacCambridge and his staff of elves have produced an exhaustive–some might say exhausting–work.”—Sports Illustrated

“Enough stats, scores and historical nuggets to satisfy even the heartiest pigskin appetite.”—Bradenton Herald

“If you’re a college football fan, you owe it to yourself to pick up a copy of the ESPN College Football Encyclopedia. . . . Be careful, though. You might get so wrapped up in its 1,629 pages that you forget you have a job.”—Washington Times
