Fantastic 2 hour documentary. Kinda funny that it is showing exactly after Cam Newton won the Heisman.
But back on topic. A school flat out having a payroll of players on a team to compete. And keot doing it after being put on probation 3 times!!!!! Wow. That was a stacked team that went 9-0-1 in what '83?
Good for them in 2009 to win their first bowl game they had been in for 25 years.
What would it be like to have a college league that pays thier players, to go against a league like the SEC or Big 10 or 12?

Yeah I remember that with Andre Ware and their Run & Shoot O....when he won the Heisman. 771 yards passing 1021 yards total offense. Against true freshman. lol
I remember the epic 1980 Holiday Bowl with the SMU Pony Express against BYU and Jim McMahon . . . James and Dickerson ran wild but McMahon led BYU to a ridiculous 21 point comeback in the last half of the fourth quarter . . . maybe the second best college game I've seen behind the Flutie-Kosar epic a few years later.
