As soon as I read the first page, I was hooked. I could not put this book down! What makes it even more compelling is that almost all of what is written is actual fact!
This story is one of those rare gems that should be brought to life by a movie. It's that good. In fact, that's how I felt after reading this book. Like I just walked out of a theater having seen a classic film! The 'ol cliche certainly applies here: "I laughed, I cried, I cheered!

Todos Rock Gospel Sertanejo Mais. Lalala feat. Camila Cabello Shawn Mendes. He likes to call it growing. He was young when he became the coach, and he had to do a lot of learning on the job, thinking on his feet. Maybe there ought to be.
When I first got the head coaching job here, I thought I got it because I was the best technical coach on the staff. I thought I got the head coaching job because I was a good coach--and it was the reason , in a sense.
~How We Work~
But the more you work as the head coach, the more your time is taken away from the pure technical aspects to other aspects. It took me a long time to learn to like those other aspects. That was what I was best at. That was what I liked. It took me a long time to learn to spread myself among three areas.
And then the third is personnel. There are two types of personnel, those currently on your team and those you need to go out and bring to your team. Of all the adjustments Donahue has made over the years to make himself a success as the football coach at UCLA, the most telling is the change that he made with his offense. All kinds of people were winning with it. Not only that, we had won the year before and gone to the Rose Bowl with it.
Dick was left with wishbone personnel. The veer took us to the Rose Bowl his second year. Plus, all my background had been veer offense. But I got the label of being a boring, conservative coach. I was winning, and I was on a pretty good pace in terms of past UCLA coaches, in terms of percentages.
There was a great deal of unhappiness. Maybe in this town, you have to do it with some flair and entertainment. Billy Don was one of the best defensive tackles in the country when he was recruited from Sherman, Tex. He was a freshman All-American for UCLA in , eventually transferred to San Jose State and finally, in , was sentenced to a year in jail after pleading no contest to voluntary manslaughter in the fatal stabbing of a drug dealer. The judge called Jackson a functional illiterate and blasted the whole system of college athletics.
Actually, Jackson had a reading disability, similar to dyslexia.

But he was a bright young man, and he was enrolled at UCLA in courses that stressed oral skills--speech, sportscasting, an African language that is spoken but not written. He also was supposed to be working with a reading therapist. Donahue still shakes his head sadly when the subject comes up. It was a dark hour for UCLA.

He had a reading deficiency, something we thought we could correct. It was a terrible scenario of events. From that point in time, we shifted philosophies. The admission process was ahead of the support process, then. There were lots of special action admissions, high-risk students. By support I mean tutorial, curriculum, adjustment of the athletic department to these problems. It was a whole new world, and we were just getting into it.
In the long run, the tragedy of Billy Don Jackson helped the university. Now the academic process and the support is stronger. He asked everyone there in support of Jackson to stand. Among them was Donahue. UCLA was one of five Pacific 10 schools caught up in a scandal involving unearned school credits and falsified transcripts in The Bruin record was adjusted from to with 2 no contests. Nothing like that has come up lately. The program has been clean.
Donahue credits the change of philosophy after Billy Don Jackson for that, too. Not easy. But I expect us to be representative. That bothered me.
