I don't know if anyone caught the Fab Five documentary on ESPN that aired tonight, but it was excellent. Probably the best sports documentary I've ever seen. Not sure if/when there will be a rerun, but I would strongly reccomend watching it.

I watched it tonight and I was very impressed by it. It's amazing how they really did change the game of college basketball.

I'm sure it will be repeated often, I tivo'd it so I haven't watched it yet. I'm looking forward to them talking about the 1993 National Championship game.

I was really impressed by this documentary. So far it is one of favorites along with the Ricky Williams and The U documentaries. It made me love and hate(more hate) Chris Webber all over again.

i watched just to see chris webber call the timeout again and to see the expressions on everyone's faces...

as for the fab 5:

The punishment cost the 20022003 team its post-season eligibility, cost past teams the 1997 National Invitation Tournament and the 1998 Big Ten Tournament championships as well as appearances in the 1992 and 1993 NCAA Men's Division I Basketball Tournament Final Fours. It cost Chris Webber his All-American 1993 honors, Traylor his MVP awards in the 1997 NIT and 1998 Big Ten Tournament, as well as Bullock's standing as the school's third all-time leading scorer and all-time leader in free throws and the Big Ten's all-time leader in 3-point field goals. The additional year of post-season ineligibility was overturned on appeal.

One of the best documentaries that has ever been done on espn. Kudos to them. 30 for 30 is the bomb.

There are so many good 30 for 30 documentaries. I think this was the best one yet.
