Termed the greatest program builder in the history of college basketball after winning more than a hundred games at four different Division I schools, all of which had fallen on hard times or never enjoyed hoops success, Charles "Lefty" Driesell was a transcendent figure in his sport for more than forty years. Despite never coaching at one of the college game's traditional powers, and despite losing two seasons in the middle of his career due to the tragic actions of another, Driesell still ended his career as the fourth "winningest" college coach at the time he retired in 2003 with 786 victories, coaching at Davidson, Maryland, James Madison, and Georgia State.

Game Day and God: Football, Faith, and Politics in the American South takes seriously the often-stated assertion that college football in the South is a religion. To this end, Eric Bain-Selbo draws upon a wide range of theoretical approaches in religious studies and cultural criticism. He also relies upon field research on several campuses in the Southeastern Conference where he interviewed fans and experienced "game day." Game Day and God also recounts the role that college football has played in Southern history and culture. Going back as far as the Civil War, the work explains the cultural meaning of college football in the South, delivering a much-needed critical perspective to the subject.
