I've read a lot of good books about Oklahoma football over the years.



This is NOT one of them.



I was looking for a little more background on the what maks this Texas-OU rivalry one of the best rivalries in college football. I supposed I was spoiled when I ready John Feinstein's "A Civil War" regarding the Army and Navy rivalry, but I expected a little more than what Mr. Shropshire composed in this book.



Yes, there were some very humorous moments in the book. Yes, we got to read some of the history

NF book on the history of the OU/texas football rivalry that is a bit tilted toward texas (the writer's home state). I spotted lots of errors and the author tries too hard to be funny when the quotes and the stories of the games should have been enough. I skipped through a few of the texas parts because who wants to read about those bastards?
