The NCAA administrators have said for years they were going to change the college football system… nothing gets done.

In 1998, the National Collegiate Athletic Association decided to leave the fate of college football teams in the hands of computers and coaches. Their enactment of the Bowl Championship Series has caused undefeated teams from across the country to fade away without the chance to play for a national championship. The hopes and dreams of fans stay unanswered.

To this day, college football remains the only sport without a playoff, without a real, true champion. The “suits” claim it’s in the best interest of the student athlete but Carlton Newsome knew otherwise. It was the money; to the NCAA, it was only about money.

Carlton decided to test the system. The year came when he knew it would be different, this particular year, no matter which two teams played, only one would end up undefeated. After all, this was America!

    Andrew Sheehy’s book “By the Nose of the Football” is written in a language that makes reading this book very easy and fun. His characters are believable and his idea of how college football can be changed to bring a great deal of joy to the fans of either team. Since Sheehy thinks outside the box, while reading his book, you can imagine yourself being able to easily see how his ideas will make college football even better than ever.

    From the football point of view, this guy definitely knows what he’s talking about! I read the book in the dead zone between the Super Bowl and the pre-season games, so it gave me the FEEL of football. This was cool. Also, the plot was innovative and interesting. Besides, I love the idea of the University of Delaware playing Ohio State in football. However, the author is not a particularly good writer. He breaks a lot of rules, with no apparent reason. Give him a couple classes in writing fiction and he could become pretty good.
