    ESPN’s 30 for 30 documentary series ran a film about former Colorado coach Bill McCartney Tuesday Night. The film titled “The Gospel According to Mac,” focused on Colorado football from 1982 until 1994. It dealt with the religious, racial, and personal conflicts that surrounded the Buffs under Coach Mac. Since the film was part of ESPN’s prominent 30 for 30 series, the Buffs were part of the national spotlight tonight.


    Before Coach Mac’s arrival, many recruits didn’t know anything about the @CUBuffs. #GospelAccordingToMac pic.twitter.com/VygmJh2Gnm

    For Coach Mac to run the offense he wanted, star QB recruit Sal Aunese was needed. He got him. #GospelAccordingToMac https://t.co/ful4OydWTk
