This book is a few years old, published in 2008. It seems like a pretty good book but from the amazon preview it looks like it is mainly about the 50s/60s not more recent.
Has anyone read this book? What are your thoughts and would you recommend it?

Temple is close to a deal to return to the Big East starting this upcoming football season. There were invited to join the combined CUSA/Mountain West Conference slated to begin in 2013. Owls will leave the MAC and replace West Virginia for football; they will be in the Big East for all sports.

ESPN's Wolverine Nation has continued its "Exit Interview" series with a phenomenal interview with David Molk. The entire interview is great - if you're an ESPN Insider, check it out.
As you might expect, Molk came strong with it when describing his frustration with seeing how some veteran players handled the first coaching transition:
"That pissed me off. It kills me. That's why when this last coaching transition happened, right after the announcement that Rich was being fired, I stood up and said, 'No one is f---ing leaving. You're staying here. No one is transferring. No one is moving. No one is going anywhere. You're staying on this team. This is f---ing Michigan. It doesn't matter who the coach is. We're Michigan. You're staying.'"
Between this year's football and basketball teams, I don't think anyone could imagine a stronger group of senior leaders. Winning is always fun, but it carries extra meaning when you consider the journey our football and basketball seniors have gone through to bring these programs to their current levels. Hail.
Hope it hasn't been posted yet but there's a great diary entry by LTT on his commitment process over at 247. Read it here.
Awesome kid, really happy for him and his mom.
