Editors Note As seen and experienced through the eyes of a football official with more than thirty years in the game, the complexities and complications of officiating a game are examined through the lessons he has learned, his personal passion for the sport, and his views on the important role he and his colleagues play in keeping order amidst the chaos.
Editors Note 1 As seen and experienced through the eyes of a football official with more than thirty years in the game, the complexities and complications of officiating a game are examined through the lessons he has learned, his personal passion for the sport, and his views on the important role he and his colleagues play in keeping order amidst the chaos.
Editors Note 2 From junior high football games to the Sugar Bowl with a national championship up for grabs, Mike Liner has seen it all in football. President and CEO of a bank by day, Liner has been a Texas football official on Fridays and Saturdays for the past 35 years. It's Not All Black and White offers a view of college football seen through a different set of eyes, the eyes of an official. Liner takes readers through the story of his ascension up the officiating hierarchy and describes the bumps in the road he encountered along the way. In doing do, he puts a human face on an aspect of football that all too often is dehumanized -- the officiating of the game.With a foreword by Oklahoma head coach Bob Stoops (a two-time National Coach of the Year) and an afterword by former Alabama head coach Gene Stallings, It's Not All Black and White lifts the curtain on big-time college football, revealing what Liner saw as he observed it and why the game means so much to him. Liner also recounts important lessons he learned through football about life as a business leader, as a family man and as someone whose faith has grown through the years.
