After Penn State's Saturday game, there are six days to prepare for the next one - six days to study films, spotting the team's own mistakes as well as the weaknesses of the next opponents, to plan strategies, to practice to the point of exhaustion. With the cooperation of coach Joe Paterno and his team, Jack Newcombe gives readers an inside look beyond the game itself into the world of university football today: recruitment, the special problems of former high school football stars as college freshmen, team morale and scholastic achievement.
