I've only seen five or six of those, actually. June 17th, 1994 was really good, and I really enjoyed the Band that wouldn't Die as well.

Finally had the chance to watch The U documentary and it was really good. Like it was said several times in the video, those guys had a chip on their shoulders and they talked a lot of thrash. They were a confident bunch, but they also backed it up on the field most of the time. I personally don't mind the celebrating they did, except when Hill ran down the tunnel against Texas. Other than that, I have no real complaints about them. But I can see why it is a turn-off for some people.

There were a lot of well coached teams in the 80s, they destroyed some teams and went on to win three National Championships, which is outstanding. It's incredible that they were able to do it with three different coaches.

For anyone with Netflix, I think all of the 30 for 30's that have been released up to this point have been put up for your Instant Queue.

I watched the 30on30 on Bo Jackson, and it was definitely one of my favorites. It was amazing to hear some urban legends regarding Bo Jackson.

Like it's been said many times, one of the best athletes of all-time. He was just great at everything he did. I wish I saw him play during his prime. He had such an amazing swing, arm, and he was so fast.

Just God given talent. Such a shame that he suffered that hip injury.

There's a 30 for 30 premiering on Saturday night about Maurice Clarett and Jim Tressel called Youngstown Boys. I heard rumors that they might do a 30 for 30 about them a year or two ago, so I've been looking forward to this one for a while.

I saw the commercial for that the other day and it really interested me. I would like to see it although I may not be able to this Saturday night.

ESPN developing 30 For 30 documentary on the XFL

Hopefully enough time has passed that the XFL has become akin to any number of bad wrestler gimmicks the WWE is willing to poke fun at itself about.

Plus, there are some legitimate lasting legacies of that league. It's where the spider cam made its debut.
