    Are there really definitive - and not fawning - books on the UCLA basketball dynasty or on the history of Notre Dame football?

    I want to read a good book on how hip-hop culture changed America and the world. How one teenager in the Bronx or Brooklyn realized in the mid-1970s "Hey, I need to keep playing that cool part of that old James Brown record over and over again. While I'm doing that, my buddy will talk about how he's a tough guy and all the girls in the neighborhood love him!" And then, how this led to a whole culture, where nowadays this stuff born out of the projects is used by Madison Avenue to sell the most whitebread products imaginable. I want to see a real smart guy who is a great reporter, like a Malcolm Gladwell or a David Halberstram, take this subject on. Just what it means about class, racial identity, art, etc. Because it's such a radical form of music -- this whole getting away from melody and being concerned formost with rhythm. I mean, jazz and rock, they came from established musical forms. Hip-hop was such a left turn....

    I like Boom's idea for a book about Bill Parcell's sociopathic coaching tree.

    Re: Notre Dame - "Shake Down the Thunder" by Murray Sperber takes you up to about 1940 or so.

    And of course:
