This one and the story about Hank Gathers in Guru of Go (The doc's actually about his coach but Hank was a big part) were some of the saddest things I'd ever seen. I mean real life stories too man... just sad.

That one was the saddest 30 for 30 doc. Drafted and then overdosing a day later. What a shame.

This kid from Pittsburgh named Rushel Shell could be the next big thing.

stiff arm @ 1:12 is insane.

His stats are:

Freshman - 1,576 yards 14 TDs 9.4 yds/carry (he didn't become the starter until the 6th game)

Sophmore - 2,740 yards 35 TDs 9.4 yds/carry

Junior - 2,272 yards (not sure about TD's and he still has more games to play in playoffs)

ESPN 30 for 30 is one of the best shows on TV. Last night's episode may have been the best one yet. It was amazing. That kid was a BEAST.

Truly one of the top RB talents ever. Those highlights from him in high school were jaw-dropping. Best highlights I've ever seen for a RB. I realize it was a beast amongst men, but he'd just run everybody over. He even ran over a ref in one of the games.

He seems to be living though. And content with everything he did, considering how tough he had it.

Dupree was bigger and faster. Saw both play, from field level, in college. No question Marcus was an even greater talent.

The Bias story is incredibly sad, but I honestly thought that was the worst written/produced 30 for 30 episode I've seen. So many angles to the story and they seemed to take the most cloying and obvious.

Just my .02

I was 10 at the time. Wasn't in Miami, but anybody watching football at the time "witnessed" Namath's prediction.
