    A must have for the College Football Fan

    This DVD Documentary is a must have for the college football fan. I have been following college sports most espaically college football and basketball all of my life. This documentary is very good as it shows everything about why so many people love college football. Also, college football has great stories and this documentary proves it. Getting Burt Reynolds to narrate the documentary was a very wise choice since he was a college football player and notbale actor. Other people such as John Amos from 'Goodtimes' and the 'West Wing', Ed Marino 'Hill Street Blues' or Mark Harmon would have been just as good since they are well known actors and former college football players just to name a few. Two more narrators would have been good for this excellent documentary would have been James Earl Jones or Kieth David. The only problem I have with the DVD is that it does not tell the story of how Herschal Walker became a Georgia Bulldog and how the team won the National Championship 'GO DAWGS!!!'. But still, this DVD is a must have.
