17 Drives

ISBN: 1523408286

Genre:

Every football game is a Shakespearean drama played out over the course of 60 minutes, with peaks and valleys, good plays and bad plays, in front of thousands - if not millions - of eyes. But in each game there are turning points: moments when the balance of power shifts from one team to the other. They can occur early in a game, in the third quarter, or in the final seconds These moments are often part of a single drive, coming as an offense puts together a string of plays that change the course of a game. These are moments when 11 players, bonded together, see the fruits of their hard work in the spring and summer pay off. The 2015 college football season contained many highs and lows - big upsets, stunning performances, and thrilling games that came down to the final seconds. In this book we examine 17 of these game-changing drives, an unconventional week-by-week recap of the season. These drives reveal not only how their particular contest turned out, but when viewed collectively, tell the story of a season and provide a glimpse into how the game is being played across the college football landscape. The season-long story gives us a window into the schemes, plays and designs that teams are using on the field, and what teams call upon when the biggest play is needed. Each one of the 17 moments contained herein are, in their own way, championship drives. Some, like the Week 4 game-winning drive by the Memphis Tigers against the Cincinnati Bearcats, showed off a potential NFL star like Tigers QB Paxton Lynch, who marched his team down the field in 2 minutes. Others, like Stanford's short but clutch drive against the Notre Dame Fighting Irish, dashed one team's College Football Playoff hopes. And one - a classic 9-minute, 22-play, 82-yard drive, led by Michigan State's Connor Cook against undefeated Iowa in the Big 10 Championship Game - helps define the term championship drive. Finally, the CFB playoffs, and Alabama's execution resulting in the crowning of a National Champion.

After more than one hundred years of craving a champion, the University of South Carolina finally has one. The 2010 Gamecock baseball team won six consecutive games over eight summer nights to take the College World Series and lay claim to the school's first major national championship. From dancing around in a dark locker room to singing "Silent Night"? on the team bus after every victory in Omaha, these Gamecocks were as fun-loving as they were talented. And they did it all in the name of one special boy, seven-year-old Bayler Teal. Bayler passed away before he could see his beloved Gamecocks triumph, but the team's victory is a tribute to their number one fan. Join the Post and Courier's Travis Haney as he recounts this incredible team's historic season.

ISBN: 1588180441
Release Date: 2001
Genre: Sports & Recreation

As their fans try to drown each other out with cries of "Rrrrroll Tide!" and "Warrrrr Eagle!", two of college football's toughest, winningest teams, Alabama and Auburn, battle it out in the annual Iron Bowl, a tradition dating back to the 1892 - 1893 season. In his Alabama vs. Auburn: Gridiron Grudge since 1893, John Chandler Griffin gives us the first complete, illustrated history of this yearly battle between the SEC powerhouses complete with a year-by-year discussion, over 1,000 photographs, and definitive lists of team lettermen and annual schedules. Griffin discusses the 41-year hiatus in the contest (1907 - 1948) caused by a squabble over finances and game officials and ended only by special resolution of the Alabama House of Representatives and a meeting of the college presidents.
