Tennessee is not recruiting well just because they got 18 dudes
Sad news about the passing of a true innovator and the de facto "curator" of the NFL brand. As many remembrances are noting, NFL Films created a mystique and a majesty around the NFL that remains to some extent today (although replacement refs and headhunting tacklers aren't helping). Even Football Follies only added to the grandeur.
From what I can personally recall (and also quickly Google) I don't think NFL Films crossed over to do any work in the college game, but it's fun to fantasize about how Sabol would have documented some of Michigan's greatest games and seasons, complete with a mic'ed-up Bo and soundbites from Ufer. Sabol's works were the original hype videos, you might say.
