Join New York Times Best Selling Author, John U. Bacon, as he speaks about the Jim Harbaugh era in college football. Overtime follows the Wolverine coaches, players, and staffers through the 2018 season, including Harbaugh, offensive stars Shea Patterson and Karan Higdon, NFL-ready defensive standouts Rashan Gary, Devin Bush Jr., and Chase Winovich, second-stringers striving to find their place on the team, and their parents’ reactions to it all. Bacon met with them every week during a season that saw the Wolverines ride a ten-game winning streak to #4 in the nation, then take a beating at the hands of arch-rival Ohio State, led by controversial coach Urban Meyer, Harbaugh’s foil.
OVERTIME offers a rare all-access window into the world of big-time college football—a 3.4 billion-dollar business that captivates 50 million spectators and 200 million viewers, second only to pro football – seen from the perspective of the players, the often overlooked engine behind the sport’s success. OVERTIME is a human portrait of eight players, from All-Americans to walk-ons, plus their parents, and their dreams.
