Genre and Theme
Theme- No matter what people think you can succeed
I think this is a good theme for the book because after Bob retired everyone was surprise that Tom Osborne would be the head coach. He almost didn’t take the job because he thought it would be a lot of pressure to coach Nebraska after Bob Devaney. Tom Osborne won 3 National Championships so he did succeed.
