That is a really good and fair article.
I have been in regular dialog with the directors of the Sal Aunese documentary and this story will certainly be covered there too.
I know many ABers don´t believe the doc is even going to be finished but the Directors tell me otherwise. In fact the way I understand it, the doc is finished, but they managed to enter into a deal with a major studio for distribution so they are now going through a re-editing process to bring it up to the quality level required.
I am holding out hope that it will end up being our "Rudy" movie and combined with new facilities and hopefully at least close to a bowl-worthy season, could be part of a springboard for recruiting in the next 1-2 years.
He needs to vacuum under his chair.
and forest green carpet when was the last year they manufactured that? that looks like a basement that has not been updated since pre 80's
Most disconcerting is the red fn shirt.
great point out and welcome to Allbuffs
Hasn't this movie been in the making for like 10 years?
Yep about that long. I think they are legitimately close to releasing but we'll see.
1. Grantland is the best thing going in sports journalism. Another excellent piece.
2. Can we officially say that the moratorium against wearing red during football season has ended? Yes.
3. I don't know that there's anyone I can think of who I disagree with so strongly on so many issues yet have so much respect for as Bill McCartney.
What are you trying say?
Rudy is the worst ****ing movie of all time about the biggest ****ing loser of all time who is still being used by the ****tiest program of all time.
And **** Baylor while we're at it.
See. Red is ok after all now.
Exactly what I said in my post.
Now you've said something else.
Rudy really? Wow, I've heard it all now. I'd celery him and Tony Rice, he's gotta be old by now.
It would make a decent 30 for 30, is that the kind of distribution they're looking at?
See, you can provide meaningful posts when you really try. I actually laughed when I read it.
This is a great article about Sal and also sheds some more light about who McCartney was as a man and a father.
I went to school with both Tom and Kristi McCartney. Tom was (is) two years older than I, Kristy is the same age. I wasn't on the football team, so I really didn't know her all that well. Tom was a decent athlete. He was on the varsity baseball team my sophomore year. I don't know if I'll ever fully forgive him for going to the dark side to coach fairview. Jerk.
It seems like it would've been great for that. However, with 30 for 30 being big on the artistic and literary part of the story, I imagine they'd have wanted some say from the beginning. I'm not sure if this is still the case, but for the first installment/season, the directors were hand-picked by Bill Simmons and his people.
They are doing a 30 for 30 on the Buffs of that era, specific details unknown.
Yep. And it has been "just about ready for release" for about 9 of those years. Have to wonder if it was even shot appropriately to make for a decent theatrical release in 2015.
Nice. Will probably include some bad stuff, but that sure hasn't hurt da U.
**** Baylor, by the way.
I was wondering if anybody would pick up on that.
Honestly, I didn't know her, but it had nothing to do with me being on the football team or not. My graduating class had something like 575 people in it. I probably knew about 40 of them. When class reunions come up, I'll pull out the old yearbook and say "Who the Hell were these people?" :lol:
I say that every time I see Burrito's pic in the yearbook. Same graduating class - it took allbuffs to actually meet the guy in person.
I can't believe you graduated with Officer Frank Poncherello!
Allbuffs should make a shirt
I've heard the same rumblings, but I am still skeptical of it every happening.
I would buy that shirt. Seriously.
It's the gem of t-shirts.
