Featuring Forewords by Franco Harris and Dan Rooney<br /><br />Mean Joe Greene's memoir is a master class in determination, domination and perseverance. For the first time ever, the College and Pro Football Hall of Famer gives readers an unflinching look at his rise from high school bully-victim and bench warmer to North Texas legend and Steelers icon.<br /><br />Many years before he would anchor the most-feared, most-successful defense the NFL had ever seen, Joe Greene was just a big, timid kid from Temple, Texas struggling to find his confidence as a teenager being raised by a single mother.<br /><br />In his compelling, eye-opening autobiography, Greene takes readers on an unprecedented tour of his life, exploring the people who influenced him and the events that shaped him: from humiliating high school embarrassments to the grit and guts that led to four Super Bowl titles.<br /><br />Mean Joe Greene: Built By Football is the inside story of how a series of mentors, mindset changes and maybe some luck helped a young man turn a scholarship offer from a small college in Texas into a selection as an All-American, a first-round draft pick in the NFL and a life in football that would net him six Super Bowl rings, including two as a coach.<br /><br />As the first book in the Football Matters' 'Built By Football' series, Greene discusses how football helped shape his character, his leadership skills, taught him humility and integrity, and helped him learn the lessons he would use throughout his life as a player, husband, father, friend and coach.

There never was as much real football ability concealed in a small package as there was in that great player, Arthur Poe. He was always using his head, following the ball, strong in emergency. He was endowed with a wonderful personality, and a man who always got a lot of fun out of the game and made fun for others, but yet was on the job every minute. He always inspired his team mates to play a little harder. Rather than write anything more about this great player, let us read with him the part he so ably played in some of Princeton's football games.

<p><strong>The Best 2017 NFL Draft Guide Out There! </strong></p><p>With 250 + prospects in this guide and 80,000 words written, I created just that. I think you will be pleasantly surprised by the in-depth analysis, grades, and player fits on each and every single player in this year’s guide. <em>I even includes all the up-to-date sizes and measurements from the combine for each player.</em></p><p><strong>But why should you buy THIS guide, and who exactly am I?</strong> </p><p>Well I’m a normal guy just like you, except that I watch college football tape for fun, and write pages and pages of notes on almost every single eligible player for the draft. Yes, you can say I’m a dork. I also write my reports in such a way that everyone can understand, even the casual football fan. I don’t use fancy scout lingo or terms that make you wonder “what the heck is he talking about?” <br /><br />I’ve been doing this for 5 years now, and I’ve hit a lot more on players then I miss. I write for multiple publications and have been recognized by many when it comes to my draft evaluations. </p><p>The other thing that separates me is I don’t write or grade players <em>based on what the “talking heads” on TV or on the internet say about players</em>. <strong>I come to my own conclusions, whether popular or unpopular. </strong>Of course I’m wrong on occasion like every single evaluator out there, but I’m right A LOT. </p><p>Just for instance, in December of 2015, I said Carson Wentz was the best QB in the 2016 NFL Draft. At the time, he was considered a late round draft pick by most. Many evaluators hadn’t even heard of him yet, others blasted me and said “I’m crazy and he’s an undraftable guy coming from FCS level North Dakota State.” That is just 1 small example.  </p><p>I can’t promise you that I’ll be right on all these players, <strong>but I can promise you that every single player in this guide I came to my own opinion about after watching the tape.</strong> I had no pre-conceived ideas about any of these players, nor do I have a college football team affiliation. I’m not biased, nor am I non-objectionable.</p><p><em>With that being said, I’m more excited then ever about this draft class. There is so much depth at so many positions, it is hard to find a ‘weak’ spot in this draft. Some will say ‘QB’ but I disagree wholeheartedly. I think there could easily be 3 franchise QB’s in this draft class. Let’s get into it my 2017 Draft Evaluations!</em></p>

From 1906 Chicago through 2013 Auburn, Bill Connelly tells the story of innovators, transcendent players, burgeoning dynasties, and greatness denied in The 50 Best* College Football Teams of All Time.

This is not a book about college football’s best teams; it’s a book about college football at its best.

"I wonder where my shoes are?" "Who's got my trousers on?" "I wonder if the tailor mended my jersey?" "What has become of my head-gear?" "I wonder if the cobbler has put new cleats on my shoes?" "Somebody must have my stockings on--these are too small." "What has become of my ankle brace--can't seem to find it anywhere? I just laid it down here a minute ago. I think that freshman pinched my sweater."<br /><br /> All of which is directed to no one in particular, and the Trainer, who sits far off in a corner, blowing up a football for the afternoon practice, smiles as the players are fishing for their clothes. Just then the Captain, who has dressed earlier than the rest, and has had two or three of the players out on the field for kicking practice, breaks in upon the scene with the remark:<br />

Max Rutter, the Lawrenceville captain, with the directness that usually characterizes such officers, called this fact to Wentz's attention. Wentz, who probably felt naturally his pride of football fame, became quite angry at Rutter's remark that he was being outplayed. He took off his nose-guard, threw it on the ground and left the field.<br /><br /> Rutter moved me over to the first team in Wentz's place. That night there was a general upset on the team which was settled amicably, however, and the next day Wentz continued playing in his old place. The position of guard was given to me on the other side of the line, George Cadwalader being moved out to the position of tackle. This was the same Cadwalader who subsequently went to Yale and made a great name for himself on the gridiron, in spite of the fact that he remained at New Haven but one year.<br /><br /> It was here at Lawrenceville that this great player made his reputation as a goal kicker, a fame that was enhanced during his football days at Yale.

Trainer Jack McMasters was on the job and put us through some very severe preliminary training. It was warm in New Jersey early in September, and often in the middle of practice Jack would occasionally play the hose on us. It did not take us long to learn that varsity football training was much more strenuous than that of the preparatory school. The vigorous programme, prepared, especially for me, convinced me that McMasters and the coaches had decided that my 224 pounds were too much weight. Jack and I used to meet at the field house four mornings each week. He would array me in thick woolen things, and top them off with a couple of sweaters, so that I felt as big as a house. He would then take me out for an excursion of eight miles across country, running and walking. Sometimes other candidates kept us company, but only Jack and I survived.

After the men have been given the other preliminary work they are taken to the charging board. The one shown here is used at Yale. It teaches the men quick starting and the use of their hands. It trains them to keep their eyes on the ball and impresses them with the fact that if they start before the ball is put in play, a penalty will follow. A fast charging line has its great value, and every coach is keen to have the forwards move fast to clear the way.<br /><br /> Then after the individual coaching is over, the team runs through signals, and the practice is on. Before very long the head coach announces that practice is over, and the trainer yells:<br /><br /> "Everybody in on the jump," and you soon find yourself back in the dressing room.<br />
