New book Game Day expertly chronicles the exciting and groundbreaking 2008 College Football Season as well as other insider information

By all accounts, and according to most experts in and on the field the 2009 college football season has been less then impressive, in fact some have called it "boring" while others openly pine for last years roller coaster ride of a season.

But thrill seekers can still relive the glory year with a new book by one of the sports best known pontificators, Craig James. In "Game Day: A Rollicking Journey to the Heart of College Football" author James celebrates the sport America is most passionate about while chronicling the remarkable 2008 season. Courting controversy, he offers a dramatic solution to the BCS problem and reveals all the payoffs, schemes and battles behind recruiting during the wild days.

Game Day takes fans on the field at spring training sessions, where exclusive interviews with coaches such as Pete Carroll and Charlie Weiss and players such as Tim Tebow exhibit just what goes into preparing for the season and which teams were slated for greatness or not. He details what makes for the best coach and dares to name his ideal one.

For nostalgia sake, Game Day looks back at the original College GameDay on ESPN and walks them through the preparations and prognostications for the season-changing USC-Oregon State game. He explores the importance of rivalries and shows readers how he puts together his rankings and Heisman ballot. And he sits back and tells a whole lot of great stories.
