"I've spent much of my career writing about sports as well as the civil rights movement. In Mike Banzhoff's new book, Friday Afternoon Courses: A Coach, Two Teams, and a University--which, like Friday Night Lights, takes place in Odessa, Texas--injustice is found on the golf course. A skilled, well-liked, and big-hearted coach from Pennsylvania, Banzhoff becomes the pawn of University of Texas of the Permian Basin officials who, for questionable or bizarre reasons, strive to bring him down. Based on such crimes as his "chicken soup" comment, the affable Banzhoff finds himself suspended, fired, jailed, and plastered on the TV news--the scandalized golf coach at UTPB. This book is Mike's side of the story. It's riveting reading for anyone touched by this scandal--and anyone who despises injustice."
--David Aretha, award-winning author and editor of such books as Arnold Palmer: A Tribute to an American Icon and Martin Luther King Jr. and the 1963 March on Washington
