The 2016/17 season was notable for many reasons in the Netherlands not least the fact that, at long last, Feyenoord emerged from the shadows to snare the club’s first league title in eighteen years.<br />However, as the Eredivisie marked its 60th anniversary with yet another engrossing title race at one end and an increasingly frantic battle for top flight survival at the other, it was events on the continent - where a dynamic, young Ajax side, under the guidance of Peter Bosz, cut a swathe to the final of the UEFA Europa League, that ultimately turned heads all over Europe.<br />For those who had once declared Dutch football to be dead and buried, Ajax’s first appearance in a major European final in twenty-one years came as not only a much needed shot in the arm for the Netherlands’ previously ailing UEFA coefficient but also a much needed fillip for the Eredivisie itself which, while not able to boast the money or star power possessed by European football’s elite leagues, offers the discerning fan the chance to see the stars of tomorrow given their opportunity to shine from an early age.<br />The Total Dutch Footbal.com 2016/17 Yearbook recounts the events of this remarkable season in the Dutch game. Follow Ajax’s long and winding road to the club’s first European final in twenty one years, re-live Feyenoord’s emotional quest for a first Eredivisie crown since the turn of the century and witness Vitesse Arnhem rewrite history with its first ever cup success.<br />From the curtain-raising Johan Cruijff Schaal to the culmination of the gruelling slog for survival that is the promotion/relegation playoffs, The Total Dutch Football.com 2016/17 Yearbook offers a comprehensive look back at what was a truly remarkable season in the Netherlands. <br />

Includes comprehensive coverage of all 32 NFL teams, analysis of offseason personnel changes, over 500 KUBIAK fantasy football projections, and breakdowns of the top 50 college football teams for 2017. With numerous statistical measures that go far beyond standard NFL stats, Football Outsiders Almanac 2016 gives NFL fans the kind of sabermetric-like statistical analysis that revolutionized the fan's understanding of baseball. It's also written with a knowing dry wit that gets under the skin of America's most popular spectator sport.<br /><br /> Groundbreaking team and player DVOA ratings that correct for situation and opponent to reveal which offenses and defenses are truly superior, and which players really help win games.<br /> Exclusive data from our partners at Sports Info Solutions, unavailable in standard NFL stats, tells you which quarterbacks benefit the most from yards after catch or play best under pressure; which teams most often blitz or run specific offensive formations; and which defensive backs stop the other team's passing game, measured by pass coverage on every single play rather than just tackles.<br /> NEW FOR 2017: Data on how receivers performed based on where they lined up before the snap: wide, tight, in the slot, or in the backfield.<br /> Detailed information on each team's performance in 2016 by offensive and defensive personnel package.<br /> Detailed individual stats for offensive linemen and defensive players.<br /> Extensive coverage of all 32 teams with week-by-week stats from the 2016 season, five-year performance trends, and analysis of off-season personnel changes.<br /> Exclusive 2017 predictions that give the odds on each team as a Super Bowl contender ... or a contender for the top pick in the 2018 draft.<br /> 2017 fantasy football projections for more than 500 skill position players based on the KUBIAK forecasting system.<br /> Breakdowns on the top 50 college football teams and full win-loss projections for all 130 Division I-A (FBS) teams.<br /><br /> "A book that any self-respecting NFL fan needs to purchase." -- Bill Simmons, The Ringer.com<br /> "Football Outsiders has now built a system that has some serious traction behind it. I personally find it fascinating." -- John Schneider, General Manager, Seattle Seahawks<br /> "Exhausting, enlightening, surprising in many cases, and an absolute must-read if you like the NFL. -- Peter King, TheMMQB.com<br /> "It's important for you, the working football fan, to know more about football than other football fans. The Football Outsiders Almanac will give you all the background knowledge you need to make your football-watching companions feel uninformed and inadequate." -- Drew Magary, Deadspin.com<br />"Football is a nearly impossible game for even its most devout practitioners to understand. Football Outsiders is the best way I know to make it make sense." -- Will Leitch, New York Magazine/SportsonEarth.com

<p>In a rousing trip through the worlds of Basketball and Football, George Thomas Clark explores the professional basketball league in Mexico, the Herculean talents of Wilt Chamberlain, the difficulties and humor of attempting to play basketball in middle age, and observes that coaching at Caltech can be more painful than studying all night for a physics exam.

Simpson, major college football players being exploited by the NCAA and university bureaucrats, the rise and fall of the USC Trojans, issues of alcoholism, substance abuse, and domestic violence, and more.</p><br /><p>Half the stories are straight nonfiction and others are satirical pieces guided by the unwavering hand of an inspired storyteller.</p>

You’ll like all the stories about the great football coaches beginning first with the Academy’s founding in 1820 just under 200 years ago. After introducing West Point, the book takes us through a great ride from the beginning of American football to the beginning of the Army football program in 1890. From here, we look at each and every one of the thirty-seven great Army coaches through the great Red Blaik era in the mid-20th century to today with a revitalized Army Football Team under coach Jeff Monken.<br /><br />You will learn that like no other football team, the coaches of the USMA have created an environment where the US Army Cadets are trained to be fierce and passionate competitors. You can bet that fFrom the stadium to the classroom to the research lab, the US Army Black Knights are trained to always play to win. <br /><br />You will learn about first coach Dennis Michie’s first official football game in 1890 even before American football had been completely defined. Michie was not only the head coach of the first team in 1890, he was the team captain. Today the Stadium’s name is in his honor. <br /><br />From here, the book moves you one Army coach at time through the immortals—Charles Daly, Biff Jones, Ralph Sasse, and Earl “Red” Blaik. And then, on the way to today, we stop for other fine coaches such as Bob Sutton and Jim Young. Army has had many great seasons with great coaches tomentor a ton of great players.<br /> <br />The history of Army coaches as told here is just fascinating as is the entire Army football program.

Walk On to Glory: A Nebraska Football Player's Journey

You can't judge a book by its cover. At first glance, one would think this is a football book. It's not. It's totally about perseverance in order to bring glory to God. Yes, there is a lot of football in it because that was an intense desire of Graham Nabity when he walked on to play football for the Nebraska Cornhuskers. The overwhelming theme, however, is to challenge the reader to focus on Jesus Christ in every circumstance of life. <br /><br />"As an I-back, fullback and special teams contributor, Graham played in 36 games at Nebraska and earned Academic All-Big Ten honors, a HERO Leadership Award and multiple honors on the Tom Osborne and Brook Berringer Citizenship Teams. Those achievements are meaningful, but the lessons he learned this past year go well beyond football, and that's why Art Lindsay decided to write a book through the dual lenses of Graham and the Nebraska Fellowship of Christian Athletes. Graham read scripture at Sam Foltz's memorial service in Grand Island. He was the only Husker player or coach to speak during the service. The overall experience from such a monumental tragedy strengthened Graham's knowledge of God in terms of worshipping, giving thanks at the same time his team was mourning and displaying godly character before, during and after every game. The greatest thing about football is the lessons you learn throughout the journey. You realize that simple faith, trust and hope help you compete for the glory of God and, in the process, it becomes both a blessing and an honor." --Mike Riley, Nebraska Head Football Coach
