    Rush Probst E:60

    Anyone else watch the ESPN E:60 on Rush Probst, the old Hoover, AL high school coach that won several state championships in a row?

    I remember actually watching that MTV reality show about his team and push to the state championship many years ago.

    Never realized the dude was such a scumbag. Had a wife and three kids, then had a second family and three kids with a mistress all at the same time and pretty much in the same community.

    ISU connection? I remember someone brought him to Ames to speak to the football team. Was that Mac or Chiz?

    The guy seemed to own up to his mistakes and didn't make any excuses so I'll give him that. Seems to be doing better now, for his sake I hope it continues.

    I loved that show on MTV "2-a-days" I think it was called?
    So much better than the crap they have on there these days.

    Such a great show. That was pretty intriguing to watch what he was balancing while running that program too

    Asside from Rob Dyrdeks Fantasy Factory, MTV is pretty much unwatchable anymore.

    He was one of the speakers at the ISU FB coaches clinic during Chizik's first spring here.


    Exaggeration is a BILLION times worse than understating.

    Saw it. He was definitely a ***** before he got caught and got cancer but I agree above. Guy said he has thousands of regrets. Watching his demeanor when he was talking I believe him. He's now married to and taking care of the second family and his oldest son from the first marriage has moved in with him so he can play football for him.

    Re: Rush Probst E:60

    I'll admit to actually buying the first season of "Two-A-Days" on DVD. It was appointment viewing with a few friends while I was in undergrad. Intriguing to see the bigger picture of what was going on behind the scenes for the facade he had up in that show with his players.

    2 a days and the show on Espn Playmakers were my two favorites growing up playing football.

    I recall you watching it every week on a 30 year old TV with dials to change the stations!
