Heart Stoppers and Hail Marys

I had the opportunity to participate in a poll this summer where I was asked to rank the most exciting finishes in college football since 1970. The results have just been published in the outstanding book "Heart Stoppers and Hail Marys: The Greatest College Football Finishes (since 1970).

The book was compiled and written by Ted Mandell. It is actually the second edition of this project, the first having been published in 2000. The book also comes with two CD's that contain the audio from 78 of the 116 games included. Another nice touch is that the games are not limited to Division 1-A--the little guys get some love here.

Despite the noteable exclusion of the Maryland-Miami game in 1984 (The Terps came back from a 31-0 halftime deficit to win 42-40), I find this book to be a must-have for any serious college football fan.
