Christian Science Monitor weighs in

The Christian Science Monitor includes Stagg vs. Yost in a feature promoting eight new football books.

"Anybody who assumes that friendly rivalries characterized college football in the early 1900s only has to read Stagg vs. Yost to revise their perceptions," writes the story's author, Ross Atkin. "John Kryk paints the period as one in which corruption, under-the-table payments, and overzealous boosters were beginning to sully the sport's image."

Atkins concludes that Stagg vs. Yost is "a case study in how two prominent coaches pushed the boundaries."
