9780061719271: On Rocky Top: A Front-Row Seat to the End of an Era

“The best book on college football I’ve read in a generation....If you love college football, you’ll love this book.”
— Jeff Pearlman, New York Times bestselling author of Boys Will Be Boys and The Bad Guys Won!

 

Part Season on the Brink, part Fever Pitch, On Rocky Top is a rollicking, all-access pass to the rough-and-tumble world of University of Tennessee football. The book chronicles the 2008 season, during which the team suffered its second worst record ever and Head Coach Phil Fulmer, the most beloved and recognized man in Tennessee, was fired. Author of Dixieland Delight, Clay Travis offers a fascinating inside look at the inner workings of a major college sports program, and chronicles a season of promise that went terribly wrong, ending a long, fabled era.

From the Back Cover:

When Clay Travis decided to spend the 2008 season up close and personal with the University of Tennessee Volunteers, he thought he was in for a rollicking ride with a leading contender for the national title. But by December, the team had suffered its second-worst season ever, and its head coach of more than thirty years, Phil Fulmer, the most beloved and recognized man in Tennessee, had been fired.

In On Rocky Top, Travis, a lifelong Volunteer fan, reports on the season from the sideline and inside the locker room, creating a fascinating and loving chronicle of an impassioned state, a celebrated football culture, a beloved coach, and the sensational collapse of a once-mighty juggernaut.
