Mining for Gold, or Mining for Greatness ?
Corrected the title.
I can see this being a hit and going viral based on Poggi and how he is likely to be capture/portrayed in the doc. Add on some wins (especially an upset) and the viewership will soar which helps our brand and recruiting. Such a smart call to have this in place and excited to see an Alumnus helping fund the cost too.
Completely agree. The timing couldn’t be any better…especially IF we can have a better than expected season. More eyeballs…more casual fans…more attention…more exposure…etc All of which could lead to a significant boost in recruiting, donors & $$$$$$$.
But if we lay an egg…it’s a stage for magnifying our failure.
Gotta have at least a good/solid season. A magical season combined with this exposure could be program changing. Especially with realignment still happening. See what Tulane did with one good year and no Biff and no documentary…imagine the possibilities.
No pressure Biff.
This is amazing. Still can’t believe we are receiving this type of coverage after local media has ignored us for years…
Just can’t be an embarrassment this year. With this type of hype and publicity…another 3 win season with more eyeballs isn’t a good thing.
However…a magical season (bowl qualifying) with the extra hype and eyeballs could be program changing.
I think its a win-win. Or at least win-draw. If we suck, no one will be tuning in to ESPN+ to watch a 3-9 team’s story other than us on this board. If we have a bowl to play for at the end of the year, I could see the average fan tune in/binge watch in December.
Does ESPN+ generally offer replays of their “features” like they do live events?
Yes, they are.
clt says we have a espn doc and a podcast dedicated to the doc?
are we media darlings now?
Just renewed my subscription to start watching. Should be very interesting.
I think I may have posted this already. Apologies if so.
Really looking forward to this series. My only hope is this first episode doesn’t overly stress the negatives of previous teams in a personal way that alienates those players that have paid the way for our future successes. Had to say that but can’t wait to check it out and follow along each week. Hope we can put together a very special season because, as others have stated, this type of exposure could push us forward in a massive way if things go well.
