1st ed.
In Nebraska, football is a religion and Tom Osborne is its patron saint. As head coach of the University of Nebraska Cornhuskers for 25 years, Osborne took his team to a bowl game every year, won three national championships in the last four years he coached, and ended his career boasting an 84 percent winning record. Now Osborne lets us in on the values it takes to achieve victory, on any field. Both a memoir and a motivational guide, Faith in the Game discusses all the traits required for successful life management and teamwork--loyalty, perseverance, honesty, integrity, strategy, character, faith, and old-fashioned "sweat equity"--while tackling subjects such as his controversial 1995 season and his team's phenomenally successful Unity Council approach, in which representatives from each part of the team form problem-solving units. Conveyed in his own captivating, trademark tone, Osborne's messages will be cheered by readers from all walks of life. In the spirit of bestsellers by coaches Rick Pitino, Pat Riley, Lou Holtz, and Pat Summitt, Faith in the Game is destined to score high.
