    Bama Being Considered for HBO Show

    I hope this doesn't happen. We do not seem to do well when these are going on!

    Distraction with a high potential for Rat Poison. Not a fan.

    I look at it as good for more exposure but bad because of distractions.

    I'm not a fan either but don't think this would distract our focus much after what happened last season. I am curios as why they chose Alabama in company with those other scabs. Makes me think it would lend credibility to the project and that Coach feels he can navigate the rat poison for the spotlight on his program.

    How about a series about Les Miles first season at KU. Should be entertaining

    Agreed. We get plenty of exposure as it is. Don't need to have a bunch of camera folks and microphones around distracting everybody, especially players, just to get more of what we already have in abundance.

    Lots of downside. Little to no upside. I vote no.

    It's only for a week, so I see no problem if it is during the regular or pre-season and not during the CFP...

    Wait a minute... I don't know if the title of the thread is misleading or what not....

    But this is not for the whole season. here's excerpt from the article:

    https://www.saturdaydownsouth.com/al...w-2019-season/

    ESPN’s original idea for “Training Days: Rolling with the Tide” was to follow the team all season long but Nick Saban would not sign off on that deal. It’s unclear what would change Saban’s mind this year but DevilsDigest.com is reporting that Alabama, Arizona State, Penn State and Washington State will all be featured by HBO this coming season in some form.
    HBO has chosen four college programs to run a Hard Knocks like show later in the season. ASU will be featured during the week of home game versus Washington State who was also chosen for the show along with Penn State and Alabama.
    That tells me It would be just for one week.
    We are champions. We can prove it! *counting 15 championships*

    I get why you might say that, but I think that Saban is becoming too nice as he gets older. I want to see the surly Saban, yelling at everyone, not the nice Saban.

    Don't fret, Penn State's a shoo-in for the show, what with Franklin having agreed to do any number of takes from multiple camera angles repeating his infamous line about hiring only assistants with hot wives. HBO will be using the footage in upcoming "Ballers" episodes, which makes sense in these lean times for the entertainment industry.
