It was the early 1970s during a tumultuous time in American history when Kevin McLeod first entered the halls of Abilene Christian College. It was there that he and his friends would learn a lodestone of things about themselves, each other, Wildcat football, and the college itself-all while being influenced by coaches, professors, teammates, dormmates, and the female cohabitants just across campus. In an amusing retelling of one week of campus life, McLeod, who was a sophomore in 1973, shares a glimpse into the gears and spiritual machinery of a college in crisis. After he and seven other young men formed a squad with an important mission, they soon realized that there was not a prayer in heaven or on Earth that could save fate from their date with destiny. As he details how he and the Nelson Eight planned and then carried out a raid on a girls' dormitory, McLeod reveals how even a group of very determined young men could not escape the consequences of their actions. The Nelson Eight shares the humorous retelling of the unchristian actions of immature men attending a Christian college in the early 1970s.
