Amazon Prime "All or Nothing" show airs April 6th

Submitted by NashvilleBLUE on March 20th, 2018 at 10:22 AM

The Amazon show gets an official release date and it's April 6th.

For me, the sting of the season is gone and the hope for next season is alive and well. The trailer for this has me super hyped, as it covers more of the lives of the team, not just the performance.

I can't wait.

Edit:

Also, on a site note (unrelated to the topic of this OP), on Attach Each Day, Jim Harbaugh specifically stated that Ben Mason will be playing LB this year. I'm not sure if that's in addition to FB or exclusively.

Looks like they put a spotlight on Gary, which isn’t surprising at all but I’m particularly interested in this as he seems like a fascinating individual, both on and off the field.

I couldn't help but feel an angry sadness when Gary hung his head, and shook his head when (what I assume is his mother) asked if his father has been in contact with him...Not as a Michigan fan, but as a father of my own children. I realize all familial situations are different and unique, but I don't have the ability to comprehend that scenario.

So (and I suspect this documentary may touch on this) he has another family who is close to him in addition to his mother. She obviously is very involved thinking back to the questionaire she gave to prospective schools.

But (unless the dude I ran into at grocery store wearing Michigan gear is completely lying and had photoshopped pics of his family with RG) there's another family who has been quite involved in his life too. So that may help IRT positive male and family role models

I fought for custody of my daughter (and won....twice), spending close to $30,000 in attorney fees for the various legal battles.  I've worked my ass off to be at every performance she's been in, whether for school lays, the varous choirs she sings in, her limited time in dance recitals,....everything.

 

I can't imagine a father not stepping up.  Rashan's mom has obviously done an outstanding job raising him, and she should be commended for it, but I feel so sorry for him not having his father being there for him in his life.  His father is missing out on knowing what an amazing man his son has become.

Wait this isn’t a thread about basketball or hockey. What is this football you speak of?

Looks like the team went for the “nothing” part of that title.

 

Edit: After watching the trailer, seems like they went in a more off-the-field direction, so it might actually be an interesting watch without the on-the-field wincing.

Harbaugh mentioned in his spring preview with Sam Webb that Mason is going to do both - FB and LB. Likely LB against run heavy teams like MSU/Wisconsin. Probably a good idea since our LBs are on the smaller side nowdays.

About Ben Mason - this is not true.  On the Podcast, he stated that Ben started out at LB, and the RB's asked him to switch to FB.  He did talk about Mason playing both ways, though, because Owen Marecic was the guest (and had played very good on both O and D for Harbaugh at Stanford).  He had Owen give some advice for playing both, and seemed generally okay with Ben trying to play both.  But he stopped short of saying it would actually happen.

In any case, the love Harbaugh showed for the way Mason plays was undeniable.  That kid seems destined to be one of the great FB's for Harbaugh...

Even though I am still disappointed about the season...there is no questioning how much everyone associated with this program has invested in it. Looks like they did a great job with the show.

People were/are concerned with how shitty our season would look on film. After watching the trailer, it seems that the most compelling parts of this series will have little to do with actual football.

That Rashan moment with his mom...damn.

The focus is likely to be more on the product off the field than on it. The on the field part will be a part of the weaving narrative, but this looks like it will give a lot of fans a good perspective of the daily lives of a lot of these players. And that it's with players at a major program, and not necessarily on their last chance, may in some ways make it a bit more optimistic and feel quite different than Last Chance U.

I'm personally pretty excited after seeing the trailer.

They tend to do that with the NFL versions too. HBO's Hard Knocks is probably 75% football, and 25% of the field stuff. All or nothing has been closer to 50-50 and I think with a college team, it will be even less football. During the Rams season last year after their atrocious NFL season, they found a way to make it uplifting while also facing the realities of a bad season. It certainly added a human element to the whole thing which I thought was nice. I'm very much looking forward to this.

Amazon is doing a really good job on these. The rams one was great, this looks incredible and the Manchester City documentary in the summer looks very good also

There are people on this board who will watch this and soak up every single second regardless of the W/L record because it's their team and there are liars.

Shoot, I'd watch this no matter what team it was.

*Except for sparty. Screw those guys.

honestly don't know if I will.  It is not that I am not interested in the players as people nor would I mind a good behind the scenes look, but I am not sure I can suspend my feelings about last season and enjoy it.  Last season left a really, really bad taste in my mouth and I am not sure I want to re-live it regardless of how good the production is.

I know this has been brought up before, but I wonder if Harbaugh contained himself for this documentary. People act different with a camera in their face. Maybe the added pressure affected the players too. I don't know, man. I'm excited for this, but perhaps everyone is better off without it happening again this season. 

All I know is, the depressing cloud that followed me from the 2017 season is gone and I couldn't be more hyped for football. Let's win a championship in basketball, skip summer, and beat the shit outta Notre Dame.

We can only speculate what effect this may have had on Harbaugh or the players, but I too am glad it's done and the players can focus solely on football.  That said, the trailer speaks volumes about the integrity of Harbaugh and the program.  If the rest of the show is anything like this, it's going to be both captivating and a great explanation of what Michigan football is all about.

I'll give it a try, but last season was really frustrating and I just don't know if I want to get even tangentially involved.  Getting to know the players on a deeper level is always a good thing and hopefully makes people pause before typing during the game(s), especially this year when it's going to be just as furstrating as last year given this teams road woes.
