Taking a decade-by-decade approach to the Louisiana State University football tradition, this collection brings together over 40 stories from the most outstanding voices of the program. The spirit of Tigers football is not captured by just one phrase, one season, or one particular game; instead, the student-athletes and coaches who made the magic happen over the decades blend their experiences to capture the true essence of their beloved school. LSU fans will relish the intimate stories told by the figures they have come to cherish.

"I realized throughout that first year that this is not a normal job, nor a normal football school, nor a normal school. This is a very rare opportunity in competition, surrounded by the most passionate fans in college football."
--from the foreword by Les Miles
"This school is full of opportunities. They will put things there for you to take. They won't give it to you, but they will put it there to take and if you take it and run with it, you can succeed."
"There is a lot of pride in being a Tiger. I once had an LSU coach tell me that I was not out there playing for myself. You are playing for the guys who came before you, the guys next to you now, and the guys who will come 100 years after you."
