Have some exciting news to announce, as Mark has been working on his first book for the last three months. We have received proof copies this week and expect to have it ready for publication early next week barring any unforeseen circumstances. 17 Drives - College Football's 2015 Season, One Game At A Time is a look at the key drives that shaped every week of the 2015 season. It is 317 pages of awesome. It's going to be available in eBook format for $4.99 and paperback for $14.99. This has been a huge effort of the part of Mark, as well as the ITP editing staff, but we are really proud to put this out. Even if you don't consider buying this for yourself, if you know someone who is into football and would appreciate it, please share this with them, as we have sunk a ton of time into this project. I'll have more information and direct links to purchase once it is officially released. Thanks all.

So in the midst of writing roughly 450 articles in 18 months on ITP, Mark also wrote a book? Prolific. I can't wait to read this.

Wait. "First book" implies a second. Did I miss some fine print in my contract again?

The kudos really should go to the editors, who do such a tremendous job taking my slop and turning it into something good.

So we are getting closer to a broad release, but for anyone who wants to toss a couple extra bones towards ITP, we are offering a pre-order with signed copies from Mark. Yes, we know they are ridiculously overpriced, but we are only going to be doing this over the course of this week, and Mark needs to protect his writing hand so there aren't going to be too many of these. Big thanks again to anyone who has been reading us, and we'll have the full release info posted here once we approve our final edit proof.

Last night "17 Drives" cracked Amazon's Best-Seller list in the football category, and it's pretty surreal to see it up with the likes of Halberstam, Bissinger, Tebow, Holley and others.

Huge thanks to everyone who has picked up a copy, left a review, told a friend, or helped in anyway. It really means a ton to have support like this from readers. And if you haven't picked up a copy yet, check it out on Amazon:
