Under the Tarnished Dome: How Notre Dame Betrayd Ideals for Football Glory
Author Don Yaeger and Sports Illustrated Senior Writer Douglas Looney reveal the dark truth behind Notre Dame's golden image--in a stunning indictment of the university's football program, administration, and controversial head coach, Lou Holtz. This national bestseller, now in paper, draws on more than 150 candid interviews, many with former players.
From the Back Cover Under the Tarnished Dome is the bestselling book that rocked the Notre Dame football program. Don Yaeger and Douglas S. Looney investigate the contrast between the Notre Dame image--that of a place where wins on the field are no more important than the integrity off it--and the Notre Dame football program's reality, with trash talking, rampant steroid use, pregame fights, and academic misconduct. Part history and part investigative journalism--the authors interviewed 150 people for this book, including nearly 100 former Notre Dame football players--this is a stunning indictment of the school's administration and especially of present-day Notre Dame football coach Lou Holtz.
