Do you like HBO’s popular Hard Knocks series? You’re luck because a college football version is currently in development.
According to various reports, four college football teams are in discussions to allow HBO’s cameras and crews on their campuses this fall: Alabama, Arizona State, Penn State, and Washington State. Based on this statement, the Nittany Lions are already on board.
“As we do with all opportunities we feel can enhance our program, we are exploring the prospect of working on this project with the appropriate officials from all parties involved.”
Given Herm Edwards’ history as an analyst at ESPN, Arizona State’s participation is a no-brainer. I’m surprised Nick Saban is even entertaining the notion of bringing cameras behind-the-scenes, but it’d be fascinating.
…But let’s be honest, we’re all going to watch for one reason and one reason alone: Mike Leach.
