For the last four years, ESPN has played some of their best college football-themed 30 for 30 documentaries during the slot after the Heisman ceremony to take advantage of the big audience, and they often knock it out of the park. There was the documentary on Miami football called “The U,” the special on SMU football called “Pony Excess,” “The Marinovich Project” about Todd Marinovich, “You Don’t Know Bo” about Bo Jackson, and this year’s feature was “Youngstown Boys” about former Ohio State football legends Maurice Clarett and Jim Tressel.
The program was extremely well done and one of the best parts was that Clarett provided a running commentary while the documentary played on ESPN.
We’ll share all his tweets below. They make much more sense if you pull them up while watching the program so that you can follow along.
