“Like the Moneyball of college football, Three and Out blows the lid off one of the sports world’s most perplexing mysteries.”—Entertainment Weekly Three and Out tells the story of how college football’s most influential coach, Rich Rodriguez, took over the nation’s most successful program, only to produce three of the worst seasons in the University of Michigan’s celebrated history. Coach Rich Rodriguez granted author and journalist John U. Bacon unrestricted access to the Michigan Wolverines' program. Bacon saw it all, from the meals and the meetings, to the practices and the games, to the sidelines and the locker rooms. Nothing and no one was off-limits. John U. Bacon’s Three and Out is the definitive account of a football marriage seemingly made in heaven that broke up after just three years, and exposes the best and the worst of college football.
