A riveting insider's chronicle of Michigan's Jim Harbaugh era, and a deeply reported human portrait of a big-time college football program at the crossroads. For the past year, John U. Bacon has received unprecedented access to Jim Harbaugh’s University of Michigan football team: coaches, players, and staffers, in closed-door meetings, locker rooms, meals, and classes. In Overtime we not only discover what these public figures are like behind the scenes, we learn what the experience means to them as they go through it – the trials, the triumphs, and the unexpected answers to a central question: Is it worth it?
"John U. Bacon's Overtime is a brilliant look into the wild and wonderful world of U.S. college football. While Bacon's intense focus is on the Michigan Wolverines his first-rate storytelling transcends Ann Arbor. This is one of the best insider-football books ever written. Highly recommended!" --Douglas Brinkley
