    This is on ESPN right after the Heisman presentation; it's called The U, but apparently it's under the title of a program called 30 for 30, if you're looking for it like I was.

    Aw geez, I hope they ran down some of the 80's Canes, like Willie Smith and Danny Sileo and George Mira Jr.

    Downtown Eddie Brown as well.

    Howard Schnellenberger, Jimmy Johnson, Michael Irvin, Bernie Kosar, Vinny Testaverde I believe, Luther Campbell, and Dennis Erickson are in the video. I don't know who else.

    Oh, he's "Luther Campbell"...now, in the 80's it was Luke Skywalker and the 2live crew.

    Luke Skywalker got sued by Lucas Film for copyright infringement, he was sued a whole bunch for taking classic songs like "Under the Boardwalk" and making them.err...pretty damn nasty...:lol:

    A taste of what they were like:

    [ame="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=t0oALRL7uyY"]YouTube- me so horny[/ame]

    [ame="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5sc_nQiuDN0&feature=related"]YouTube- 2-Live Crew, "Face down *** up"[/ame]

    He used to hang out on the sidelines and was just the booster from he**, cars, money, it was all blatant the TV announcers would joke about it.

    Those were some fun times my man, fun fun times...:up:

    I'll say it again 3 things could have been called. Should have been defensive holding not PI either way results in a first down.

    The game should have never went into overtime but the Refs didn't want to throw flags on Miami for defensive holding.

    At any rate Jimmy Johnson was endorsing this on Mike and MIke this morning, he expects it to be contraversial even stating that the program didnt want many things aired that will. JJ added that it is very acurate.

    Excited to watch it, I liked the Canes always sorta have. Hope they get back to the powerhouse they once were.

    These guys were not football players.....

    They were super heroes...


    If Jerome Brown were alive today and in his prime...we could drop him in Afghanistan and he would find and kill OBL within 2 days.

    They told you they would kick your ***..then they kicked your ***...after the game...they asked you how that *** kicking felt.

    Some of these things still are raw...I am still bothered by that PI call that cost us #6...but The one moment that always has bothered me is the phantom fumble in Notre Dame.

    Cleveland Gary DID NOT fumble...we got screwed right out of a National Championship.

    Dude Miami was outplayed and the same arrogance your speaking of wont allow you to admidt it. I like the "U" also but the fans need to man up and stop blaming a ref for them not blocking the front four of OSU.

    I saw some prominent players. They had greys on and stocking caps on. I said “What are you doing?” And they said, “We’re going out to get car stereos.” - Steve Walsh on the Canes players from the past.

    What gets lost is the incredible graduation rate those Canes teams had.

    Jimmy Johnson mentioned the graduation % was in the 50's before he got there and 88% while he was there, JJ was truely a great all around coach.

    I believe that is "Catholics vs Convicts II" isn't it?

    It was sweet when the U got their revenge, what was the score something like 45-7 or something?

    The one game that the Hurricanes took years to recover from was Alabama whipping our asses in basically the National Title Game, man we got smoked.

    Needless, with Lil Nicky Coaching the Crimson Tide (of the Month), I have no love for that program..

    Yep, they would intimidate the hell out of the other team so bad, and they backed it up too. Lot's of good stuff like that in this book [​IMG] Definitely worth checking out if you're a Canes fan.:theu:

    it was Catholics vs. Convicts #1...

    The Notre Dame student newspaper also agreed that Gary did not fumble.

    we lost 31-30 only after we elected to go for 2 instead of a tie.....

    too bad we had a 1st and goal at the 1 taken away from us 4 minutes earlier.

    it indeed costed one of the best college football teams of all-time ...a national championship.

    1989 27-10 Miami (Dennis)

    I saw 4 preview clips of this and got goose bumps listening to those guys talk. Even Lou Holtz pays tribute. I'll record it and watch it when the kids are asleep. Certain things deserve my undivided attention.

    This documentary is kicking *** thus far. I'm recording it and watching it. Very well done so far. For those who were in the SFL area in the early eighties, do you remember anything from the rebellion in '82 I think they said?

    BTW, they left off the part about the U players also ordering food and booze and sending it up to the Sooner's rooms...

    The bill was put on the room's credit cards...:lol:

    They also called up the front desk of the sooner's hotel and said they were OU players and ordered 300 dollar bottles of booze

    "This is Brian Bosworth in room 335, send up 3 bottles of champagne"

    :yes:

    That is how it was Alen, they showed up in Phoenix in the camo, they all the time were doing stuff like that, in the paper, on air, they talked a bunch of **** and backed it up.

    Mostly.

    I am absolutely loving this documentary. I didn't really start watching football until 2005-06 and this is how I've always felt football should be. Very physical and kick *** - not literally lol. Today's game has too many rules. This is simply amazing though. Great job ESPN.

    Fu nny thing is Alen, if you rewatch this, look at all of the players that went on to have good careers in the NFL.

    Even Bernard "Tiger" Clark was a #2 pick for the Bengals.

    just from the guys I noticed:

    Greg Hawkins..#1 pick
    Mike Irvin #1 pick
    Greg Rackoczy #2 pick
    Steve Walsh #1 overall via the supplemental draft
    Bennie Blades #3 or #4 overall at Safety
    Vinny T #1 overall
    Randal Hill #1 pick

    It just went on and on.

    I happened to catch the 1983 game where the Canes upset the Cornhuskers for the national championship, Bernie Kosar was this skinny dude who threw funny...:D

    BTW, what a great Recruiting Tool for Miami...:D

    Yeah but look at Alonzo Highsmith and Melvin Bratton, two big time guys, were not too successful. Highsmith blew out his knees but I don't know what happened to Bratton. Injuries too?

    Bratton ended up in KC and was behind Okoye and Harvey Williams.

    Alonzo was maybe #5 overall in 97.

    Now that is just embarrassing, FSU made a rap video...that used to happen all the time in that era...and it sucked, even back then, everyone wanted to be the 85 Bears with the "superbowl shuffle"

    Awful...:pity:
