AuthorHouse, the leading provider of self-publishing and marketing services for authors around the globe, has released for the first time ever in eBook format “Perfect”—legendary sports journalist Bob Hammel’s account of the Indiana Hoosiers’ perfect 1975–76 championship basketball season. The 35th anniversary edition includes a new preface from Hammel that looks back on the historic feat while posing obstacles a team today would face to repeating it.

“Today, champions must play six games,” Hammel writes, “but a No. 1 seed at best would meet a 16 seed in the first round, 8 in the second, 4 in the third, then possibly 2-1-1 in the last three…”

The re-release of Hammel’s retrospective comes at the conclusion of Indiana’s third consecutive season without an NCAA Tournament invitation—the longest such drought since the Hoosiers missed the Tournament for five consecutive years between 1968 and 1972. Conversely, buzz about the program has been mostly positive with current coach Tom Crean securing Parade All-American Center Cody Zeller, who enters IU in 2011, and the recent securing of five top-150 recruits for 2012.
