Released in mid-September, “The System: The Glory and Scandal of Big-Time College Football” is the latest vignette-styled, behind-the-action look at college football. The 386-page book offers insight and access into the recruiting, game planning, struggles and successes of the college football season.
WSU fans will be interested in a number of chapters related to coach Mike Leach and athletic director Bill Moos,Oct and even a look at President Elson Floyd's administration. For example:
Every athletic director has to have a trusted confidant, someone on staff capable of handling sensitive situations that arise behind the scenes when running the most visible department on campus. In Bill Moos' case, he turned to Mike Marlow, a gregarious fellow who spent thirteen years toiling away in the athletic department at Oregon. That's how Moos knew him. Marlow used to work for Moos in Eugene. But Marlow was a graduate of WSU, and when Moos offered him a job at his alma mater, he didn't hesitate.
