Fresh off the release of Coach Jim Tressel's book The Winners Manual comes a brand new addition to the Buckeye library collection: The Troy Smith Story.
Written by Dave Biddle (from Bucknuts.com) this book promises an uncensored look and a riveting tale about an athlete that overcame all odds because of an unshakable faith in himself.
The book is scheduled for a mid-August release, but you can order your copy now and beat the rush of rabid buckeye fans looking to meet their G.E.D. reading goals.
A quick search of amazon.com identifies that there are 892 different books focused on Ohio State Football available for purchase. This impressive list includes the classic work: B Is For Buckeye: An Ohio Alphabet. With that many books available, you could fill an entire wing of TUOS's Library System as long as the patrons understand that they are only supposed to read in the library.
Personally, I think Mr Biddle's choice of title is a bit underwhelming. Such an important manuscript deserves something special. Calling this book THE TROY SMITH STORY is like calling Michigan "just another game". Here is my top ten suggestions for Mr. Biddle to spice up the title and get a couple of more copies sold. Your suggestions are also welcome.
