The Stanford Daily has released a fascinating new examination of the resurgence of Stanford football. The authors of 'Rags to Roses' joined The Bootleg Radio to talk about their project.

Three student journalists at the Stanford Daily have authored 'Rags to Roses,' an intriguing look at the epic revitalization of Stanford football from the doldrums of the 2006 season to the present day. Joseph Beyda, George Chen, and Sam Fisher (a regular contributor to The Bootleg Radio) spent the past several months interviewing 32 players, coaches, and individuals associated with the Cardinal program over the course of the past seven years.

The fruit of their labor is a thorough look into the behind-the-scenes details of Stanford's magnificent turnaround which will entertain diehard and casual fans alike. Beyda, Chen, and Fisher joined me on this preseason edition of The Bootleg Radio show to discuss the story behind their new book. Oh, and by the way, you can find 'Rags to Roses' on Amazon.
