Review quote

"For everyone who values college football, ESPN College Football Encyclopedia is an enormous endeavor and a fine tribute to the game." --Joe Paterno, head coach, Penn State "Let us give thanks to the college football gods, for unto us a bible is given. . . . Massive in scope, minute in detail, and more than three years in the making, it's a worthy successor to its ancestor, " The Baseball Encyclopedia." Editor Michael MacCambridge and his staff of elves have produced an exhaustive-some might say exhausting-work."--"Sports Illustrated" "Enough stats, scores and historical nuggets to satisfy even the heartiest pigskin appetite."--"Bradenton Herald " "If you're a college football fan, you owe it to yourself to pick up a copy of the ESPN College Football Encyclopedia. . . . Be careful, though. You might get so wrapped up in its 1,629 pages that you forget you have a job."--"Washington Times "
