Reviews - What do customers think about A Farewell to Glory: The Rise and Fall of an Epic Football Rivalry - Boston College Vs. Holy Cross?
Good look at a famous football rivalry Jan 27, 2004
A good review of both game action and trends in college football & in the philosophy of both schools. I do wish Carew had done brief game synopses of all the games (he probably did synopses of 30 or so, and more in-depth discussions of some of the more famous or interesting ones). Also, more photos would have been nice. As a post-rivarly attendee of Holy Cross (Class of '92) I appreciate the importance of the rivalry but also understand why it had to end. Carew's book gives a nice glimpse into what I missed.
