This is my take as well. I enjoyed it overall and it's worth reading, but the prose and annotation make it read too much like a scholarly journal article. I also found it more complimentary of U of M than I expected...until the very last chapter.
The companion volume to this book ought to be the unauthorized biography of Bo Schembechler: The Wolvie Years 1969-89. This effing guy was the biggest NCAA cheater in history; but the press protected him and his staff and the B1G and the NCAA looked the other way because SCum meant too much to college football to fail.
I enjoyed the content but the delivery can be a bit academic. Would have loved to see the Cliff's Notes version.
Got only half way thru. Interesting to see what a scum balls the Yost and Crislers were, how often UM cheated and manipulated etc.
You have to trace the scum/Iowa connection back then ala Evashevski etc. "Evy" was a scum football player in the late 30's early 40's so he would adopt the party line despite having been an assistant under Biggie in the late 40's at then MSC. .
