487 pages. Inscribed to Shelley Berman "Many thanks for helping to kick off "Three Yards" hoping you enjoy reading this as much as I enjoyed writing it. Best of Luck. Bill Levy, 9/22/66. A great history of the early years of Ohio State University Football with the last part on the remarkable Woody Hayes whose phrase: "three yards and a cloud of dust" symbolized conservative football of that era. Photographs also tell the story as do the statistics at the end of the book. Woody used to have an electroencephlogram on his players at the start of the season so if they did have a head injury, it would be compared. He also had a quote: "No back in history has been worth two fumbles a game". His record brought Ohio States up to a par and then exceeded their record with foe Michigan. A very readable book plus an important refrence to a golden era in college football history. A near fine copy bound in red cloth lettered in white, spine lettering white in very good unclipped pictorial dust jacket with light wear to corners, tiny edge tear and light wear.
