Southern Fried Football: The History, Passion, and Glory of the Great Southern Game
Southern Fried Football proves that when it comes to college football in the South, the operative word is passion. The 2000 season marks the 120th year of college football in the South, and the fever hasn't lost a degree of its pitch. This book celebrates Southern college football at its finest with:
Stories of regional rivalry -- when Alabama and Auburn square off on a Saturday afternoon, families divide and marriages dissolve.
The grand traditions of the South's most celebrated dynasties -- the Bourbon Barrel of the Kentucky-Indiana game, the Gator Growl, the cowbells of Mississippi State, and, of course, UGA, the mascot with a face only a Georgia fan could love.
Profiles of the greatest players, teams, and coaches in southern college football -- from the 1898 Immortals of Kentucky to the young stars of today.
Southern Fried Football is a devoted celebration of the people, places, and moments that make college football in the South more than just a game, or a show of school spirit. South of the Mason-Dixon line, football becomes without question a passion as bold and as heated as good barbecue.

Southern Fried Football: The History, Passion, And GloryUser Review - Book Verdict
Unlike John Sayle Watterson's narrative College Football (LJ 9/15/00), this book is a rather encyclopedic collection of facts and personalities relating to the college game, which has been played in the South since 1890. After presenting a broad chronology, 1999 Georgia Sportswriter of the Year Barnhart (the Atlanta Journal Constitution; ESPN) summarizes the most significant contests, heated rivalries, and timeless traditions of the region's schools. The author, who visited 30 different college campuses in the South to gather his material, ranks the legendary coaches, pays tribute to such great teams as the 1898 Immortals of the University of Kentucky, depicts passionate, flag-waving fans at Saturday games, and even cites various sportscasters. Including a foreword by announcer Keith Jackson; this affectionate compilation will attract academic and public libraries not only in the South but elsewhere, too. Morey Berger, St. Joseph's Hosp.
