On any given workday, any little thing might send Steve Smith?s thoughts spinning back to Saturday?last Saturday, Saturday two weeks ago, Saturday two years ago, back into the thrilling minutiae of game day?until reality reminds him: this is not how well-adjusted adults act. Steve Smith is not a well-adjusted adult. He?s a Nebraska football fan, and this is his rollicking account of what it?s like to be one of those legendary enthusiasts whose passion for the Cornhuskers is at once alarming and hilarious. ø A journey into an obsessed Nebraska fan?s soul, Forever Red immerses readers in the mad, mad world of Cornhusker football fandom?where wearing the scarlet-and-cream Huskers gear has its own peculiar rules; where displaced followers act as the program?s ambassadors, finding Cornhusker subculture beyond the pale; and where the team?s performance can barely keep pace with its followers? expectations but sometimes exceeds their wildest dreams. Blending wit and insight, Smith?s story of twenty-plus years following the team takes readers back to memorable game moments from 1980 to the new era under coach Bill Callahan, offering the uninitiated and the fellow fanatic alike a window on the world where fantasy and football meet, where dreams of glory and gritty gridiron realities forever join.

Since becoming the Nebraska women’s volleyball coach in 2000, John Cook has led the team to three national championships, seven NCAA semifinal appearances, and the nation’s top winning percentage in women’s volleyball. In Dream Like a Champion Cook shares the coaching and leadership philosophy that has enabled him to become one of the game’s winningest coaches. Growing up in San Diego, Cook acquired his coaching philosophy from his experiences first as a football coach, then as a student of the sport of volleyball on the beaches of Southern California. After a stint as an assistant volleyball coach at Nebraska, he returned to Nebraska as head coach in 2000 and won the national championship in his first season. Even with a bar set so high, Cook saw at Nebraska’s tradition-rich program the potential for even greater growth and success. He decided to focus on higher expectations, training, motivation, goal setting, and other ways to build the strongest teams possible. In Dream Like a Champion Cook shares the philosophy behind Nebraska’s culture of success and reveals how he’s had to learn, evolve, and be coached himself, even in his fifth decade as a coach. With openness and candor he delivers insights about his methods and passes along lessons that can be used by leaders in any field. Cook also shares behind-the-scenes anecdotes about Nebraska volleyball moments and players—and how he coaches and teaches his players about life beyond the court.
