Audience Reviews for The U

  • Jan 24, 2015
    "The U" is a a breezy inside documentary about the rise and fall of the University of Miami Hurricanes football team in the 70's and 80's that also takes a couple of righteous swings at the hypocrisy of the NCAA. That began with Howard Schnellenberger being hired as head coach, instantly changing the culture of the school by recruiting heavily from Miami's scarred inner city neighborhoods. Along with that, he installed an innovative play of style that the players embraced and celebrated.(The moral of which if you didn't like them celebrating, then simply just stop them from scoring.) As the documentary talks to plenty of former players and coaches(my personal favorite as a Cleveland Browns fan, being, of course, Bernie Kosar), it also does leave out that the Hurricanes' fall from national prominence might have had just as much to do with moving to the ACC as anything else, where they have been completely overwhelmed by Florida State in both challenging for national championships and controversy. On the other hand, this is certainly a one-sided documentary.(What I wouldn't have given to hear from Dan Marino on the Hurricanes possibly overshadowing his Dolphins.) And I remain skeptical of any time sports are given a lead role in healing or uniting a city, no matter the case made here. As much as "The U" also points out how many former players made it to the NFL, I find it kind of unusual that four straight head coaches(also including Jimmy Johnson, Dennis Erickson and Butch Davis) tried to find their fortunes in professional football, with Schnellenberger having the bad luck to try and go to the USFL.
