    Anyone else watching this? It is fantastic! Except for the clip they just showed of the Cyclones getting dunked on in The Palace...

    This is fascinating. I had it in my head that the Fab 5 were together for only that 1 year.

    I hope our basketball players appreciate their trip to Italy more than they did :)

    I couldn't help but think about all the call at the end of the K-State bowl game this year for excessive celebration while watching this...:confused:

    lost 94-72. I remember their game vs Duke their freshman year. it was an afternoon game, that night ISU beat the hawks at Hilton. The Hoiberg dunk over Earl game. This is a great show!

    That was a powerful 10 seconds of video there. Seemed like 15 minutes

    I was around 13-14 the summer before these guys last year...I had about 15 pairs of black Nike socks! The way the doc talks about them making all that money for Nike and them driving crappy cars...a little sad how these college athletes get exploited.

    I distinctly remember watching that national championship game and thinking that it was so unfair that a game get decided on a bad timeout. I had no interest in Michigan, but that bothered me as a 12 year old.

    Great show but couldn't they have picked a better sponser?

    Watch the 30 for 30 on the Miami Hurricanes and it is 10 times worse. The celebrations they did in the game they beat Texas were hillarious

    did they touch on the scandal with the Detroit booster who had a lot influence with them attending Michigan? It also led to the eventual firing of Steve Fisher and the team's probation. It was the same Detroit booster who knew Raveling when he was at Iowa and helped the Hawks land a lot of Michigan talent in the 80s.
