    Aww I must have seen the wrong one. LOL They are definitely filming in Corsicana. Would be cool if they are also in Athens.

    im torn on whether im a big fan of sports being turned into reality tv... As someone who is super competitive and considering how many "alternates" they have sitting around waiting to be apart of the team, id be peeved as a regular non tv member of the team. Id be thrilled for my team mates and friends obviously, but college is expensive, being on a college sport can be expensive if not on scholarship, and to have that all be put on hold so that a few members can cash in on tv fame would make me a bit sour to be honest.

    *although ill add, jerry getting to meet brad pitt! I dont know why a single human being would turn down that potential opportunity.

    TV teams don't have a good track record. The year UK was being filmed they came in 2nd. Dunbar being filmed recently was also disastrous (the year the cameras were in Orlando, I don't think they made finals and this year they were 10th.) It's like a curse almost!

    Hopefully this is not the case for these guys, though.

    I heard Monica talking about it on a radio station. She shared the team is ahead of where they need to be at this point. So, she felt comfortable allowing them time for appearances. Monica seems like a very intelligent business women. I don’t see her having a problem saying no if needed.

    I also love TVCC. I hope the scores are close and both teams do amazing.

    In Dunbar defense they won the year they were first on tv. The program seemed to really go down in recent years.

    Who validated that this team was an authentic one to begin with?
