WSU contacted by HBO for Hard Knocks style show

PULLMAN, Wash. - Washington State University has been contacted by HBO to be featured in a Hard Knocks type show that would air later in the college football season. That's according to a source close to the WSU football program, who made it clear nothing has been signed yet., an Arizona State University athletics fan site, tweeted that there are four college football programs expected to be featured by HBO: ASU, WSU, Penn State University and the University of Alabama.



Hard Knocks is a reality sports documentary television series produced by NFL Films and HBO. It's not clear what the college football show would be named or what kind of access the universities would provide.

An HBO show would provide tremendous exposure for WSU and its football program. Head coach Mike Leach, known for his colorful quotes, is surely a major factor in HBO's interest in WSU.
