Wait a minute. You can't purchase it? You have to rent it for 8 dollars?

You can purchase it at a later date, but as of now the only way to watch is via renting.

You can pre-order the DVD through the Facebook page. The release date is TBD, but I've seen him tell at least one person he wants to have them shipped before the start of the season.

It's mostly a DRM issue keeping them from allowing you to buy it online and I'm sure a distribution issue keeping you from buying a DVD right now.  If you want to "buy" a digital copy, there's many concerns with how you could iget that video in in a way that would prevent you from just tossing it on some torrent site for everyone else to get for free.  Amazon has spent millions figuring this out for them and these guys are trying to do it on a shoestring budget.  If you want a copy, pay the $8, download your own copy (see my previous post) and keep it until they get thier end figured out

I would love to see it make it to ESPN, or any mass audience. I haven't seen "Part 1" so i don't know the quality of it and if it could be a base of something ESPN takes on, but if the quality isn't there, I don't think there is any film maker or director that would decide this was going to be their project. Something the other stories have had that I don't know if we have is someone with clout and experience who took up the project.
yeah, all the og 30 for 30s were the brain child of a somewhat high profile Hollywood producer, director or what have you so we need Stonestreet to win an Oscar or whatever

The opposite is actually true. The original series was 30 films by 30 filmmakers, when Bill Simmons and Grantland ran the series they have a lot of people their big break. Check out the 30 for 30 wiki, it's a good mix of established filmmakers, people no one have ever heard of, and people who were well known in other fields like Ice Cube. Since they punted Simmons they have used filmmakers they are more familiar with producing films that others have conceptualized or written.

Blu-ray copies will be available to purchase later this week, possibly tomorrow. Will also be available at the stadium on Saturday for fan appreciation. Go cats.

FINALLY got around to watching the deleted scenes last night. I knew Barry Sanders was committed to K-State at one point, but I didn't realize Parrish basically told him to get bent. It really is amazing how many HOF caliber players were committed here at one point in time, even back in the dark ages.

My father-in-law recently told me a story about how we lost Walter Payton. He said Payton was literally on his way to Manhattan and stopped to see his brother at Jackson State, then JSU coaches blackmailed him into staying by threatening to pull his brother's scholarship. Can anyone confirm this?

Wow. I figured the story might have been at least a little embellished. Not even a little bit. Thanks for the link.

30 for 30’s are best when their telling the real story as opposed to the hype or public perception.

Laettner:  Public Perception-Pretty boy private school spoiled rich kid which fuels a whole legion of disdain.

Reality:  Middle class kid with two school teacher parents working off his tuition at a private school by cleaning the school.  Driven by the hate.

There’s no hook like that with Kstate. It’s all been written and filmed and discussed.

We still would have been shitty even with Walter Payton at running back.

False. The U had none of that public misperception at all and it’s the GOAT 30 for 30. Fab Five, too.

Would Walter Payton be as good as he was if he didn't go to Jackson State?  :dunno:
