Great read!

I am a fan living in Alabama, and you can say all you want about Tennessee being our "historical" rivals, but a Bama's fans most intense hatred will always be reserved for Auburn. That being said, this is an excellent book about our #2 biggest rival and the history behind it. Browning, despite being a Bama fan, does an excellent job of presenting both teams. If you are a fan of either team in particular or college football in general you should find this book entertaining. Well worth the read.

Bingo! I liked this one. Almost as much as "A Tailgater's Guide To SEC Football."
I highly recommend both. Roll Tide!
