The Book Corner
Mike Freeman‘s book, Two Minute Warning: How Concussions, Crime, and Controversy Could Kill the NFL (And What the League Can Do to Survive) is a tremendous read for football fans who care about the future of the game.
Alex Kirby’s 2014 book Speed Kills: Breaking Down The Chip Kelly Offense should be one of the better selling tomes in the Bay Area this offseason.
Our own Mark Schofield wrote 17 Drives, breaking down a key drive from each week of the 2015-2016 College Football Season, culminating in Alabama’s victory over Clemson to earn a national championship.
