Description of the book "'Cane Mutiny: How the Miami Hurricanes Overturned the Football Establishment":
The Miami Hurricanes are the beast of college football. A sports powerhouse unlike any other, they are a dynasty fueled not by individuals but by the aura of "the Miami Vice" -- a swaggering, trash-talking, us-against-the-world mentality. But less than twenty-five years ago, the program faced extinction. Five national championships -- and five different coaches -- later, Miami is the preeminent football factory, boasting such high-profile NFL alumni as Michael Irvin, Ray Lewis, Warren Sapp, Jim Kelly, Vinny Testaverde, and Jeremy Shockey. Sports dynasties are typically linked to players or coaches, especially in college football. That isn't the PDF case at Miami. But then, nothing is typical about the 'Canes. Not the brutal, "voluntary" six a.m. workouts in July. Or the merciless drilling of teammates who show fear. Not the constant pressure from their Godfathers, the ex-'Canes who want them to uphold the legacy -- and will make them pay if they don't. And certainly not the stranglehold on college football that has made the Hurricanes synonymous with excellence -- even among superstar athletes. Sportswriter Bruce Feldman gives us a rare, behind-the-scenes look at the Miami program. Unlike other notable football books PDF, this one is written by an insider who has had special access to the Miami football machine for more than ten years as a former UM student and beat writer. It is the amazing story of how Miami has won more national championships over the last two decades than Notre Dame, Oklahoma, and Florida State combined -- and gone from near-death to dynasty.
