Much to our surprise, two books recently arrived on the doorstep. Unfortunately, we haven't had a moment of free time to even think about cracking open a book. But we want to make mention of each.
The first is titled "Meat Market" and is authored by Bruce Feldman of ESPN. He chronicled the recruiting efforts this past spring of Mississippi Madman Ed Orgeron and his staff.
The second is titled "Bowls, Polls & Tattered Souls" and is authored by Stewart Mandel of Sports Illustrated. Mandel's book examines hot-button issues, among them the BCS, polls, recruiting, the Heisman hype-fest and a favorite topic of ours, cheating.
