There are good ideas and their are great ideas. If you love football this is what constitutes as a great idea. And the teams that HBO reportedly has chosen seem to be pretty damn interesting.
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.

(Source)–A documentary series modeled after HBO’s popular ‘Hard Knocks’ program is coming to college football.
According to various reports, Arizona State, Alabama, Washington State and Penn State have entered discussions to allow cameras and filmmakers on campus this season to shoot footage for an upcoming yet-to-be-revealed production on the popular cable channel.
Penn State released the following statement on Tuesday alluding to its potential involvement in the show: “As we do with all opportunities we feel can enhance our program, we are exploring the prospect of working on this project with the appropriate officials from all parties involved.”
You got to love this not only because of the programs but because these four coaches are just too interesting. You got Mike Leach who is a walking quote machine. You got Nick Saban who might just be the greatest coach in college football history. You have James Franklin who openly tried to step up to a fan in Happy Valley last year. And finally you got Herm Edwards who their are no words to describe how weird it is he is coaching arguably the best party school in the country. God bless America and God bless football.
