Description
Though the Southeastern Conference football season is still months away, the fans obsession is year-round. So head coach Von Driver will take his motivational magic and his Isosceles Triangle of Success on a Pigskin Cavalcade to the small towns in the state. Raymond Love, a young coach unfamiliar with the banquet circuit of big-shot boosters and chat-room gurus, will go along as his wide-eyed errand boy. Also on the trip is the athletic director s daughter, whom Love has tried to win by joining her book club a dubious strategy at best. The football aspects of the Cavalcade will prove child s play compared to the literary hazards he faces. Will Love master the art of coach-speak? Will he win the affection of the girl? Find out in this fist-bumping, high-fiving, all-out comedic blitz about the sublimely ridiculous world of college football."
