Description du produit

Présentation de l'éditeur

For the people of West Virginia—a state that is often ridiculed and disregarded—their flagship university’s Mountaineer football team is a source of pride, a shining representative for their state on the national stage. So when native son and head coach Rich Rodriguez led the Mountaineers to an unexpected Sugar Bowl victory at the end of the 2005 season, behind a youthful roster that included electrifying freshmen Patrick White and Steve Slaton, West Virginia fans figured the best was yet to come. Instead, the seasons that followed served up endless, stomach-churning drama, pivoting around one of the most earth-shattering upsets in college football history—to be known forever by its final score, 13-9. Successes came the Mountaineers’ way, including three Bowl Championship Series victories in seven years. But so did turbulent coaching changes that splintered the fan base, looming uncertainty caused by ongoing conference realignment, power struggles that forced some into highly embarrassing acts, and enough backstabbing and subterfuge to fill a Shakespearian tragedy. The Mountaineers emerged from the turmoil to face a bright future in a new conference, but will the old demons still haunt them? A sportswriter for the Charleston Daily Mail, Mike Casazza has covered the Mountaineers for more than a decade; he’s lived WVU football from Nehlen to Rodriguez to Stewart to Holgorsen. In Waiting for the Fall, Casazza has written the definitive document of this unprecedented period for West Virginia University football. You'll also read an insightful foreword from ESPN play-by-play announcer and native West Virginian Mike Patrick, who broadcast that infamous loss to Pittsburgh. Waiting for the Fall is an epic tale that captures the events and emotions that defined an era for West Virginians who experienced it firsthand. It’s also a must-read for football fans who watched with interest as the sport’s most successful team without a national title became a soap opera disguised as a major college football program. And if you’re a sports fan who simply loves a great story told well, Waiting for the Fall is just the sort of page-turner you’ll love. *Now Updated with a new Epilogue by the author!

Biographie de l'auteur

Mike Casazza is an award-winning reporter and the beat writer for the Charleston Daily Mail and has been covering collegiate athletics since 2002. He’s covered NCAA Tournaments that have ended in the Final Four, Elite Eight and Sweet Sixteen and numerous football bowl games, including three BCS games. He’s broken stories and been around breaking news along the way and has learned more about coaching searches, coaching contracts, litigation and the legal side of sports than he ever predicted. Born in Hamilton, Ohio, in 1980, he graduated from Osbourn High School in Manassas, Va., in 1998 and attended West Virginia University. He was a magna cum laude graduate in 2002, when he was named the Most Outstanding News-Editorial Student and Top Scholar in the Perley Isaac Reed School of Journalism. He began his work in a newsroom at the Manassas Journal Messenger in 1996 and moved on to WVU’s Daily Athenaeum in 1998, the Morgantown Dominion Post in 2000 and the Charleston Daily Mail in 2007. He’s won a list of awards from the West Virginia Press Association, including first-place awards for sports news writing in 2009, 2010 and 2011, and was the recipient of an honorable mention honor from the Associated Press Sports Editors for column writing in 2003. He resides in Morgantown, W.Va., with his wife, Erinn, and lives a quick sprint away from Mountaineer Field, in case news ever breaks. Of course, it often breaks when he’s on vacation—or perhaps because he is on vacation.
