Don't know if it needs one, but put all your commentary here, I guess?

Let me spoil the ending for you:  Our only major sport undisputed national championship coach is run oft by a past-his-prime racist megalomaniac.  Then, said winning coach's right hand man is setup to fail in finishing out the season and sloughed off like so much dead skin.

That right-hand man goes off and does a few impressive things, then we finally wake the frick up, hire him, and start to heal the last of the schisms from the racist megalomaniac's term.

Oh, and some Duke players cry on the bench.  So, I bet it's pretty good.

Because Woopig is all about challenging authority and not kissing administrator ass, I'll put my review in Alpha's thread instead of MDEM... plus it was first.

I saw it after the SC game.  It was a good flick - I saw nothing that anyone should be worked up over.  Broyles is non existent.

It is about 2/3 of Nolan coming up, explaining some of his resentment coming up and then the 94 run.

They basically then leap straight to the firing for about 15 minutes and rehash the 2 angry press conferences.

I know I've yammered about Nolan before, but seriously, if you watch that film and take in the following:

1. guy basically raised by an old lady with an absent father and dead mother, which would make me angry.
2. being black in segregated America - being the leading scorer on your team and not being able to play on someones floor because you're black, which would really piss me off.
3.  Fighting to get an open door and not getting anywhere forever, something which pisses me off most of my life
4.  Having your kid die, something which I wouldn't even want to think about, the anger I would feel in that.
5.  Getting to the top and then still having people question your intelligence and coaching while sucking Coach K's cock and Hootie's vagina  - again, seething anger - I've never felt the national media has been made to own up to their fricking part in this point.

Yeah, I'd be an angry guy too.  I'm an angry guy now in a lot of ways and Nolan had it way more fricked up then a lot of us want to own up to.  If you watch that film and get angry over something, then you may be the one with the problem.

By the way, a lot of moments got applause during that game but I think it is worth noting that the audience applauded heavily when it was noted that my alma mater was the first University in the South to hire a black coach in a major sport.

I should've guessed it would be about discrimination instead of Arkansas basketball.  I'm so weary of that.

How would you make a piece about Nolan Richardsons life and career and not have discrimination be included? And Im sure there will be some Arkansas basketball in there somewhere.

The bit about nolans grandma knowing slaves is powerful.

On Yvonne: my Kentucky friend said the thing he remembers the most about Nolan (who he loathed at one point) was when Nolan said after the title game "baby we got u another one."

We have a president in our documentary.  That era was lightningin a fricking bottle.

It was a great point I thought. Same styles, but we were playing people ball and they were playing hard and smart. I was 9-10 years old in those years. I love getting to rewatch the highlights of glory days.

When others played it, it was called full court pressure.  When we played it, it was ni--er ball.  Thanks for reminding us Nolan.

yeah.  i remember hearing it even as a kid, which perplexed me b/c our style was all i knew and how i wanted to play.  and we were fricking awesome.

i edited my post b/c it might have been inappropriate, but I think that maybe seeing it in context does drive the point home about what Nolan had to overcome.

i don't know. no offense intended, obviously.

I hope everyone knows we're watching a show about a guy who should be coaching somewhere, anywhere, right now.

i'm just glad that he's back. 

we had to celebrate and be glad, because this brother of yours was dead and is alive again; he was lost and is found
