    It's funny that ESPN is playing this following the Heisman presentation on Saturday...

    yes, I'm all set to DVR it. Should be a pretty good one.

    I love the college football ones, but haven't really got into any of the others.

    It sounds interesting, and the timing is very interesting.


    Since we are an elite team now, let's go get that One Cyclone Moment.
    Make this one for the ages!

    It's an interesting story. The term "death penalty" sounds severe, and maybe over the top, but it's actually an appropriate descriptor of what happened. The NCAA completely obliterated that program. They're just now starting to get to bowls again. I think they played in one last year, and made one again this year.

    Really looking forward to watching

    Yeah, they made a bowl game last year. First time since the "punishment". The NCAA shut their whole 1987 down and the penalty was so severe, SMU canceled the 1988 season as well.

    The funny thing (if you can say that) about the death penalty on SMU, it was "cited" as one of the main reasons why the SWC fell apart. (I wonder if Texas put that out their to divert some of the blame...)

    SMU would have likely been a B12 team, possibly in place of Baylor, had this debacle not happened.

    To the original question, yes, I'll be watching that episode. I also very much like "The Best that Never Was" episode. Very good story.

    I enjoyed that one as well. BTW, what time is this supposed to be on? Is it 8:00 CST Saturday?

    My favorite so far has been "Once Brothers" documenting the former Yugoslavian National team in the 90's featuring Drazen Petrovic (R.I.P.) and Vlade Divac.

    I am interested in the SMU piece. Practically the entire SWC (even ISU) was under some sort NCAA sanctions in the 80's. It really seemed to open up the recruiting for a certain group of schools.

    Looks like I'm going to have to wait until Christmas day when I'm back home to see it.
