The Winners Manual: For the Game of Life, the new book by Ohio State head football coach with Chris Fabry, will be No. 14 on the New York Times’ expanded Advice, How-To and Miscellaneous list on Sunday, September 7. It marks its sixth consecutive week on either the Time’s primary or expanded list.

Ohio State opens the season this Saturday vs. Youngstown State in Columbus. Of course, Youngstown State is the school where Jim Tressel won four Division I-AA national championships. While Coach Tressel did his book signing in Youngstown in July, a number of YSU football players actually showed up to the signing in uniform. While they didn’t ask for autographs, it was somewhat strange seeing YSU players at the book signing of the coach whom they will facing in week one.
