Endzone tells the story of how college football's most successful and respected program nearly lost it all in less than a decade, and entirely of its own doing. It is a story of hubris, greed, and betrayal, a tale more suited to Wall Street than the world's top public university.Author John U. Bacon takes you inside the offices, the board rooms, and the locker rooms of the University of Michigan to see what happened, and why, with countless eye-opening, head-shaking scenes of conflict and conquest. But Endzone is also an inspiring story of redemption and revival. When those who loved Michigan football the most recognized that it was being attacked from within, they rallied to reclaim the values that had made it great for over a century. The list of heroes includes players, students, lettermen, fans, and faculty-and the leaders who had the courage to listen to them. Their unprecedented uprising produced a new athletic director, and a new coach who vindicated the fans' faith when he turned down more money and fame to return to the place he loved most: Michigan.… (mere)

The story behind the story for any Michigan Football fan and a great look at the unrelenting pressure and stakes of college athletics. John U. Bacon is no genius prose stylist and sometimes lurches for drama where there isn't any. But his reporting is incredibly thorough and rich, his grasp of narrative firm but not choking. Most importantly (and selfishly) I read this story of Bacon's about Michigan football's redemption and didn't have to dig into his previous book about how low the football program of my childhood had sunk.

I enjoyed this book on a variety of levels. For Michigan alums, like me, it reminds us of the beauty and wonder of watching a live event with more than 100,000 "friends". For anyone interested in college athletics, and college football in particular, it reinforces how intertwined sports are with education. And finally, if you simply enjoy the drama of difficult decisions and how they are influenced by personality, history and culture, this is a great read. ( )

There are a handful of college football programs that ALWAYS matter...whether they are up or down. Michigan is one of those programs. Reading about the Wolverines' fall from grace was quite an eye-opening experience. The decade long demise finally reached its peak with the firing of an egotistical athletic director and an ineffective head coach. Bacon does a great job of showing the different angles of this story from a variety of perspectives (coaches, players, students, professors, regents, fans, alums, and the president of the university). Having said that, the amount of editing errors in the book are unforgivable...to the point where many sentences were unreadable. Nevertheless, this is an enjoyable read that is a great addition to the history of this titanic program. ( )
