"An illustrated, hilarious takedown of long-lost football 'wisdom' from legends like Rockne, Heisman, and Camp. Your old Uncle Frank likes to say that football ain't what it used to be; how today's players, coaches, and analysts know nothing compared to legends of the past. Oh, yeah? Well, here's a book of ancient nuggets of football wisdom hilariously taken apart to show that all the golden advice and knowledge from years past is, well, from a lot of years past. And it hasn't aged too well. 'Ask the Old Football Coach' takes the old football coach at his word...and then offers a few words in response! Illustrated with vintage football photography."--Publisher description.

I liked reading this even without being real savvy when it comes to football. It's a little difficult to follow the "old advice" parts because it is just *so* dry and antiquated, but it usually gets to making some sense with the commentary and pictures. The commentary is sarcastic and stuffed with ironic detachment, so all things considered, it's not for everyone. However, if you're like me and just love bad advice and dumb jokes, this might be your thing!
