I agree wholeheartedly, but Marcus was there as a consultant on this one. Probably made all the difference.
You are correct. I saw the movie Friday and I do not think it was all that well done. I read the book when it first came out and it was great. The movie changed a lot of the true facts.
I don't understand why. The movie would have been great if it just followed the book. Leave it up to Hollywood to screw it up. Should of got those guys that made Act of Valor to do it.
I read the book and broke down crying several times. I understand why they had to leave some things out of the movie just for time's sake. However, listening to Marcus say he wanted the movie to be about his brothers and not about him made me respect the man even more. I saw the movie after church yesterday and experienced what I've heard others say - everyone left the theater in silence, but you sure could hear all the sniffling at the end of it. Well done Marcus! You honored your fallen brothers. Anyone who wants to know the whole story, the book is amazing, but the movie did the book proud.

Maggie80…..I too though his voice was funny. I had to watch the video twice because I didn’t see the bee giving a high 5 at first. I kept expecting the bees back leg to move. Anyway…kind of an amusing video.

Was this the same juror who said that she could not understand what Rachel Jeantel was saying while she was being questioned…..I heard the sound bite on Rush today. So sad.

So it is suppose to say ACC? Not SEC? Did anyone notice the 6th word into this story is spelled wrong? (rormer…..I’m sure it is suppose to be: former) Anyway…I don’t follow football…What is ACC? What is SEC? Thanks. Choose Maine Lobster!!!!
ACC is the Atlantic Coast Conference (Duke, UNC, etc.)
SEC is the Southeast Conference (Georgia, Alabama, etc.)
ACC is a joke in football.
SEC is a joke in basketball.
That's really all you need to know.
@EASTINFECTION How is the SEC a joke in Basketball?
6 National Championships since 1994 is hardly a joke. Including 1993 the ACC has the same number.
For most of that time the SEC had 14 teams and the ACC only had 9.
Plus... drop top two in that era from each (Duke, UNC... Kentucky, Florida) & the bottom two from each (Miami , Boston College... South Carolina, Texas A&M) and i'd take every remaining ACC team vs every remaining SEC team every day of the week.
Atlantic Coast Conference, and the South Eastern Conference. He only wishes he could've been an SEC champ.
