Since Robert works on the football broadcasts, I imagine any "behind-the-scenes" stuff will be tempered.

Still, it's got to be better than the book Pat Jones did, where he only told glossed-over versions of game recaps - and conveniently stopped at 1988. That one was pretty useless.

Did you really think Pat was going to share the real story behind probation and his involvment??? He hasn't told the truth about it since day one...why start now?

Oh, in no way did I expect that. But I thought he might go into a bit more detail about other stuff, or talk about the difficulties he faced after the probation (the stuff we all seem to think he still has a grudge about).

GoPokes articles by Allen have always be okay IMO. With a good editor I bet he could pen a book just fine. Not to mention the guy would be writing about something he is very passionate about which always makes for good reading.

I hope they have a good editor for the book, I have never been impressed with Allen's writing skills...
That was my first thought as well. I'm sure he had an editor working with him. His passion for OSU really comes through in everything he writes, though, and I feel like this book will be really interesting. Looking forward to checking it out.
