Chuck Klosterman, a writer for Esquire and Spin magazines as well as an author of several funny books, has most recently written a book called Eating the Dinosaur. I'm not sure what the book is about, but the excerpt included on ESPN's Page 2 uses Coach Rodriguez's read option play as a prime example of why football is the ultimate "modern" sport whose speedy adaptation of new technologies makes it much more "liberal" than "conservative." The best part is that he is using Sheridan's performance against Minnesota last year as his prime example of the read option. Enjoy . . .
