Produced in 2009 by ESPN for its "30 for 30" series, "The U" was a look at all that was good and bad about the rise of the University of Miami's football program in the 1980s. But that wasn't the end of the story. "The U Part 2" picks up where the original film left off, with the program trying to recover from the devastation left by NCAA sanctions and scandals that had some calling for the school to drop football. The Hurricanes rose from those ashes to win another national championship, only to face new controversies when a booster used a Ponzi scheme to win favor with the program.
Variety: “Picking up where The U left off in 2009, The U Part 2 possesses an almost epic quality in documenting the fall, rise and fall of the U. of Miami’s football program, which has churned out first-round draft picks and salacious scandals in equal measure.”
