Being a player in the NFL has its drawbacks. For the average player, his career only lasts about four years, and sometimes, lives are ruined by injury. Kickers have more longevity and can survive up to fifteen years. However, even kickers must eventually admit their days in the football spotlight have come to an end. Kicker for the Indianapolis Colts-Matt Ridgeway is nearing the end of his career-he just doesn't know it yet. When draft season comes around, his team picks Clay Dinsmore in the second round. Clay is a star kicker out of Purdue and Matt must face a new reality. Twenty years ago, Matt was the young upstart who showed up ready to kick the competition "all the way to Detroit." This time, another youngster will try to do the same. Questions arise: is it time for Matt to call it quits? His wife waits in the wings, ready to take over his life, as his father-in-law offers him a job away from the NFL. Even his oldest friend-the kicker whose job Matt once stole-is telling him to step down. For Matt, though, football is life; it's all he's ever known. What's a guy to do when his path hits a dead end?

It’s America’s most popular sport, played by thousands, watched by millions, and generating billions in revenues every year. It’s also America’s most controversial sport, haunted by the specter of life-threatening injuries and plagued by scandal, even among its most venerable personalities and institutions. At the college level, we often tie football’s tales of corruption and greed to its current popularity and revenue potential, and we have vague notions of a halcyon time--before the new College Football Playoff, power conferences, and huge TV contracts. Perhaps we conjure images of young Ivy Leaguers playing a gentleman’s game, exemplifying the collegial in collegiate. What we don’t imagine is a game described in 1905, not today, as "a social obsession--this boy-killing, man-mutillating, education-prostituting, gladiatorial sport." In The Opening Kickoff, Dave Revsine tells the riveting story of the formative period of American football (1890-1915). It was a time that saw the game’s meteoric rise, fueled by overflow crowds, breathless newspaper coverage and newfound superstars—including one of the most thrilling and mysterious the sport has ever seen. But it was also a period racked by controversy in academics, recruiting, and physical brutality that, in combination, threatened football’s very existence. A vivid storyteller, Revsine brings it all to life in a captivating narrative.

Poodle Mania had its beginnings in 1974 just as "love, peace and understanding" had run its course. Once it was decided the revolution John Lennon sang about was over, a new revolution began. The Poodles are the grandchildren of that revolution. Instead of "power to the people," it was "power to the pink." Before the day's end, the Poodles would know just how far the power of pink had come. The stage was set. The St. Percy Poodles vs. the Nugget State Tigers on homecoming week-end with the national championship at stake. Draglove, AZ was pink "ground zero" as 85,000 strong gathered at Poodle Stadium for the "Treat in the Heat".

Football Scouting Methods

"Considered the bible of scouting techniques" according to the Los Angeles Times, Football Scouting Methods explains the basic scouting strategies and insights of author Steve Belichick. He was widely viewed as the ablest football scout of his time and coached at the U.S. Naval Academy for 33 years; his son is New England Patriots coach Bill Belichick, a three-time Super Bowl winner. When Steve Belichick died in November 2005, the New York Times headline cited him as "Coach Who Wrote the Book on Scouting," and quoted Houston Texans General Manager Charley Casserly calling Football Scouting Methods "the best book on scouting he had ever read." Joe Bellino, Navy's Heisman Trophy winner in 1960, told the Times that Steve Belichick "was a genius. On Monday nights, he would give us his scouting reports, and even though we were playing powerhouses, I always felt we were prepared because he found a way for us to win." In recent years Football Scouting Methods has been one of the top ten most sought out-of-print books; used copies have been quite scarce. This reissue edition makes the original 1962 text available once again in exact facsimile. The book covers how to scout opponents, recognize defenses, analyze offenses, discover "tip-offs" that reveal the opponent's plays, compose a useful report, self-scout, and conduct postgame analysis. "Steve Belichick taught many younger men how to scout and how to watch film and how to prepare their teams for the next week's game," David Halberstam noted in the Washington Post, and his best student was his own son Bill Belichick, "one of whose greatest skills as a coach to this day remains his ability to analyze other teams, figuring out both their strengths and their vulnerabilities, and shrewdly deciding how to take away from them that which they most want to do." When CBS asked Bill Belichick to name his favorite book, he replied "Well, I've got to go with my dad's. Football Scouting Methods. I'd have to go with that."
