    I commented with this same thing in one thread. Have no idea which one. No one commented on it. I’d like it. Even if not HBO. Just our own production.

    That's the only way we'd get considered. You think the powers that be would prop up any non-P5 program....nope. Seems like the NCAA should nix this. It's an unfair competitive advantage. You can't commit to NFL teams. You get chosen. It's like a free recruiting tool, and you'd probably get paid on top of that. Now, if a school wants to spend its own budget to make one....that seems legit, but just having someone like HBO do it.....nah.

    I mean, I just watched "The Quest Episode" (which is #17), and well, that is just as good as having a "Hard Knocks" show (as far as the production quality, etc...). It just needs to be propagated to the masses somehow, and something like HBO has a big, built-in audience.

    Netflix would be cool too. Not sure why they aren’t trying.

    Sweet. Another way people can profit from "student athletes" without paying them.

    Alabama is the only school on that list that makes any kind of sense.

    Show time already had a series like this called A Season With. It followed Notre Dame, FSU, and then Navy. We actually play Navy in one of the episodes which is pretty cool.

    I don't like it but I admit I'm an old hater. Being on the show will go to athletes heads while also profiting (even further) off their images without compensating them.

    I love how these shows are produced, the ones for boxing are great.

    I'd love to see a UCF version but our coaching staff likes to run things like an intelligence agency.

    Man, I totally forgot about that, and I watched most of the FSU episodes. I guess it wasn't memorable. Still, it gives them free or paid for pub and that shouldn't be allowed in college football.
